Fusion 10/6/16 -- Happy Birthday, Daughter #1!

I'm actually pretty excited how this all came together!  Sometimes (ok, a lot) I have great "plans" and then I muff it up, it doesn't look the same on paper as it did in my head or SoMeThInG happens!!!  I know it happens to everyone, but I think a little more to me since I'm relatively new to all this...

Well Daughter #1's Birthday was actually yesterday but since she was out of town with her hubby, we'll be celebrating today.  Goodness!  She's the big 3-0!!  That doesn't make me old, right?  Well, before I keep you too long, I'll let you take peek...

I stamped the image and colored with Copics, added a few white gel accents, masked and ink blended through a stencil for the sun, cut the base and main image layers with stitched detail and mounted to the cs.  Glossy accents were applied to noses, eyes, balloons plus a few random ones to imitate the balloons.  A close-up of the details...

This was a fun card to make!  It will be sent to Fusion Card Challenge.  I was inspired by the layout, although it's totally in a scene instead of different cuts.  I couldn't make the chairs in the photo fit the stamp, go figure!
