Happy Birthday Mark

Thursday January 5, 2017
 
My little brother (who will be 49) has a birthday in a couple of days and so I made this fun card for him. I watercolored the background with Ranger inks. I then used some scraps of paper and Lil inker balloon die and Your next stamp letter and made the HAPPY.. I used Spectrum Noir glitter brush over the balloons. I then die cut the dog from Tim Holtz crazy dogs and colored him with copics and die cut a balloon from the crazy bird accessories. I ran embossing thread from the balloons to his tail and tied a bow to his tail. He's stepping on the string from the deflated balloon. The birthday die is from My Favorite Things.  I know he will love his card. I sure loved making it. 
Thank for stopping by.

Hiyaa look the face of the DOG

your brother will love this
and you amazed me with gluing that tiny alphabet
I cant do that
because I dont believe my Glue PEN
it is a hard pen I cant push it like Tombow Multi Liquid glue..but this glue I write (Tombow) is not easy if I apply to the tiny sentiment also I choose stamping the sentiment hehe
