Buzzing By with Birthday Candy

The image on this card is from CC Designs and I think it she is just adorable. She is stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink onto Georgia Pacific white cardstock. She is then colored with copics. After that, I cut and embossed the image with Nestabilities. In the same way, both scalloped layers were cut, with the last layer also being embossed. I used a purple sharpie to make the dots in each scallop on the white layer.

I started with a SU! Elegant Eggplant cardstock base and then added the print PP from a DCWV stack. I used the piercing guide from the SU! Mat Pack to pierce the holes. Then, a purple sharpie was used to connect the holes.

Finally, the sentiment from Gettin' Buggy With It from Langley Boy Designs by Gina K was stamped with VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea chalk ink. I then heat embossed it with Ranger Holographic EP.

Ok, so here is the Birthday Candy I promised. I am including a set of 48 Prismacolor Pencils, 4-in. square chipboard coasters (6), a pack of ribbon, a 4x5 memory book, and two mailbox tins.

All you have to do to be entered to win is leave a comment on this post. You will have until noon EST on January 17th to enter, I will be drawing a name randomly on Thursday, January 17th (my birthday) at 7:00 p.m.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by.

as much as I love markers I still love my pencils too. They are so easy to take with you on trips and kids love using them. Just the empty tin would be worth the entry here!

Love this card...if I had endless stamping money, I would have to get some of these bugs! Can't go wrong with pencil crayons...I have gel pens and markers but pencil crayons are the ol' reliable!

Allison said...

Oh, BTW, Happy Birthday! (Don't count this one...K?)

OMG!!! Prismacolors!!! You are so generous!! I have had these on my list of "wants" for some time now. I won't be able to get them now because my New Year's Resolution was to not spend money on crafts this year so that I would be able to donate $1000 to the Crohn's and Colits Foundation.
Thanks!
