Hi there!! If things look different on my blog post, it’s because a bunch of “upgrades” were done on WordPress, and I haven’t figured them out yet!!!! I made this card featuring a new to me artist named Myka Jelina. This is one of her adorable Minikin characters, Layla. I colored her with Copics, then added some glittery accents with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens.

I cut the image out with a stitched rounded rectangle die, that I extended to accommodate the full image. I cut and layered the papers that I’d chosen before I started to color according to a sketch I saw somewhere…but for the life of me, I can’t find it now!!! I added some stars and sequins, then had another go at the sparkle, so it matched better with the sparkly parts in the balloon paper. A fishtail banner die cut, with a diecut and hand written sentiment finished this off 🙂

I’ d like to enter this in the following:
