Cute Chick

It looks like this will be a Birthday week - I've been busy making lots of Birthday cards.  I just received my Unity KOM too, so it was fun that I got to use some of the stamps.

This is for a friend:

I love that cute little chick from the April KOM, and when I saw the glasses images in the same KOM, I thought it would be super cute to use one of them with the chick.  I added glitter to the frame of the glasses.  The image was coloured with copic markers.

My latest craze on cards is to make an embossed frame using my Scor-Buddy, so here's the first card with that technique.  Over the next few posts, you see more cards with the same technique.  Sometimes I like the colour of the cardstock and I don't want to add any patterned paper on it but it looked rather plain, so this technique is a good way to add some interest to the cardbase.

Hope you like the card.  Have a great day!

Stamps : Unity KOM April 2011, Papertrey Ink Banner Builder & Big Birthday Wishes
Paper : GKD PLC Ocean Mist, October Afternoon 
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black & Angel Pink, Distress Ink Tumbled Glass, Copic Markers
Other : Sakura White Gel pen, Sakura Pigma Micron 0.1 Sepia, Scor-Buddy, EK Sucess border punch
