Happy Birthday Joy!

Wowzers, TWO posts in one day! Be sure to scroll down to my first post today to celebrate with some Copic fun!!

Today is my friend Joy's birthday (from Eclectic Paperie and Our Craft Lounge). She is such a sweetie and boy oh boy is she gettin' some birthday love today! Check out Cami's blog HERE to read all about Joy's special surprise. She loves this new Our Craft Lounge Hangin' Loose with Kona set which is available now at Eclectic Paperie. This little turtle is so cute and perfect for summer time cards and projects. Marianne Walker from Our Craft Lounge (and Copic) illustrated this set, way to go Marianne!! I colored in my image using Copic Sketch markers, using Cosmo Cricket's Snorkel patterned paper as my color guide. I love the fun fruit-punchy colors. Since the Snorkel paper was distressed looking, I inked up my image with a Ranger distress pad to give it a little tan color. I cut my image out using Spellbinder's Inverted Scalloped Circle Dies. I love them for summer-y projects, the shape reminds me of the sun.


I finished off my fun pocket card with some machine stitching, juicy, purple Papertrey ribbon, an insert card with some more Snorkel patterned paper and glitter on the beach towel. What a fun card! I'm a little late to the party but I'm so glad I got to participate today. Happy Birthday Joy!!
