Encore Presentation Michelle Perkett Studio Flying Birthday Girl

My card today is an "encore presentation" from July - the definition:  We are re-visiting a card I made back in July using a Michelle Perkett Studio digital image.   Our Thanksgiving holiday weekend was filled with family and friends and not much creating time so that's the reason for my "rerun".   I hope you don't mind!

This cute little flying birthday girl was fun to color with Copic markers, is printed on cream cardstock, I then  realized my plan for the clouds wouldn't work with cream card stock so I re printed my image on white and paper pieced the clouds so I could flick some color onto the bottoms of the clouds with Copic markers to make them more realistic.

The scalloped frame is two Spellbinders dies and I used Cuttlebug embossing folders to add more polka dots and swirls to the background papers.  I added three flowers in the top left corner and a touched up (with my Copic marker) Dew Drop to the center of each flower and two more touched up brown Dew Drops on the panel at the bottom.  The dotted organdy ribbon is to cover a little tiny boo boo and last of all I stamped "make a wish" from one of my Papertrey Ink stamp sets. 

We have a new challenge that starts today at our Michelle Perkett Studio blog you won't want to miss, I hope you can play along!
