Today is the first birthday (or "blogoversary") of the High Hopes Blog! AND, it is also a Happy Birthday to Danielle for her birthday yesterday, and a Happy Birthday for Ying, whose Birthday is tomorrow!!

This card shows Gavin, the dragon on his way to a party. He looks like he's ready to celebrate! Gavin and the presents he carries are colored with Copics. Glitter pens are used on Gavin for his scales and his teeth. The Yellow-Orange package he is carrying has streamers on it that are colored with a blue glitter pen. SU Cardstocks, and other DPs are used to make this card. The phrase shown is from a DP for birthdays. The only cardstock that is not SU is the White Cardstock that is used for images. All stamping is done with Memento black ink.

The inside of the card has DP on both sections. Ribbon is used to celebrate the birthday. A Clear glitter pen is used on the candles on the cake in the upper section, and the presents at the bottom are colored with Copics. The phrases on the lower section are from DP for birthdays, and the phrase for birthdays is from High Hopes. The phrases are on placed on Cardstock - Natural White and Crushed Curry, both from SU.
