Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Humorous Birthday Card

Hey all. Did you know that Catch the Bug is having a week long Birthday bash? I am totally in for getting all the projects done.  They are offering some awesome prizes.  One of them being another guest designer spot.  I won one last time and would to extend my DT time with bugaboo.  I love their images. Don't you? Today's challenge was to make a funny birthday card. 

I used another Bugaboo image. All the papers are from my stash.  I colored her with my promarkers. I added a handmade bow and buttons. Some glossy accents were added to her glasses.  Card layout inspired by the sketch at i heart card sketches.

Entering in the following challenges:
