Happy Birthday to Kellie

Supplies:  Digi by Christy Croll, Tiddly Inks, aqua cardstock 
by Canson, kraft card blank by Papermain, pp by , MS loopy 
border punch, BG Button - Jovial range, 
embroidery floss, copics and glossy accents.

When the wonderfully talented Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks looked for volunteers recently to make a card - I jumped at the chance.  It was a surprise for her college friend Kellie who was turning 40.  Christy sent me the image above with some zipped files that I never opened.... just opened them to find a girly image... oopppsss!

Well, I'll just have to make more cards with the other image!  I adored this one that was attached to the end of her email - I printed it on kraft and only coloured the balloon.  Then added a thick layer of glossy accents on top.

Machine stitched everything!, matted and layered, punched, inked and distressed with Tim Holtz's magic distressing tool and hey presto!  Gone off in the post to Christy for her friend's surprise.

Also created one for Christy (same image - different take!)
