Don't you think Buddy and his Pet Plant are adorable? You can find him and many more super fun digital images over at Rick's Zibbet and Esty shops. I used the layout from this week's Retro Sketches challenge - RS#155, and the colours are from the current My Favourite Things Colour Challenge - MFTCC#16. I used a couple of sheets of design paper to cover the card base. I printed Buddy on some white card, coloured him with Copic markers, cut him out and edged the image with black marker. I die cut the star from white card, coloured it with Copic markers and added lots of sparkle with my Wink of Stella brush. I added a touch of sparkle to the pet plant too! I finished the front with a simple birthday sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat from the design paper and added a simple greeting on the white panel.
I hope the DT over at MFT are okay with my colours - when I printed off the challenge graphic I thought the colours were blue and green, it's only now that I realise the colour is lavender!! Never mind - I'm pleased how this turned out.
We've got sunshine again, but along with the sun comes cold, cold temperatures! But spring is on the way - the clocks go forward this weekend and the weatherman is promising much warmer temps next week - yea!!! I was out yesterday and I spotted some grass - albeit slightly brown, but it'll green up soon - I hope. That's all for now. See you soon.
