A Bloomin’ Great Birthday!!

Good morning 🙂  It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a card with a quirky character from Bloobel, that I thought that I should get on it 🙂  I used Bekkah Bloom for this card.  I colored her up with my Copic and SN markers, then cut her out with a die that had a thin frame on it.  I just got some flower dies, so I used them to make the flowers for this card…pretty happy with them, but like anything, it needs a bit more practice 🙂  Another die was used for the greenery.  I messed around with papers and other touches for a long time, but finally settled on using some fiber “pineapple” paper (that’s the name, and it’s pretty cool stuff!) behind the image, and I layered numerous pieces of papers I received a few years back with a magazine.  I distressed these before adhereing them.  The card still needed something….and believe me, I looked through A LOT of embellishments, dies, etc. before settling on using the scribbles from a Tim Holtz Sizzix die set.  I cut the die cuts in half and tucked them around the edeges.  Some purple pearls were added at the very end.  I was bloomin’ happy with how it turned out!! (sorry, couldn’t resist). 🙂
