This is the next-to-the-last blog in the Blog Hop we've been having for Deb's birthday. What fun it has been! There are 7 blogs before this one in the hop - you should have been to all of them. The blog previous to this one is Donelda's Blog - Wiggy's World. If you missed it, you need to back up to it:

Sooo... we heard that Deb's favorite color is GREEN. My card has a LOT of green in it.

I used the image, Gavin the Giving Dragon from High Hopes. Gavin is bringing presents to Deb for her birthday. I used Copic pens to color the image, using colors B02, B29, G12, RV14, RV17, V04, Y28, YG03, and Y45. He is cut out and mounted on YoYo Yellow cardstock, that is then mounted on Brilliant Blue Textured cardstock, Some presents are pasted on the ribbon under his picture. Small "bling" stars are on the outer circle of cardstock.

Inside of the card, you will see another High Hopes stamp, Birthday Fish. This image is also colored with Copics; colors B000, Bg10, BG18, and YR68 were used on this image. Clear Glitter Glue is used on the bubbles in the water in this image.

In the final section of this card - the lower part of the inside - I have used more High Hopes images for the Birthday Cake and candles seperate from the cake image. Copics were used to color all images, and numbers B24, B32, B41, G0000, G05, RV29, Y02, and Y35. Clear Glitter Glue is used on the candle flames to highlight them. The cake is cut out and mounted on Bright Pink cardstock, and then on a larger circle of green cardstock. Small "bling" stars are on the outer circle.

The candles that are seperate from the cake image were also colored with Copics, numbers B24, G07, G12. R27, Y02, Y35, and YG45. Again, Clear Glitter Glue is used for highlighting the flames.
The verse on this page is SO appropriate - Make A Wish!

Next, go to Deb's blog and wish her Happy Birthday!!
