5th Birthday

I've entered a challenge for the first time in ages - Lawnscaping Challenge #79. I tried a new technique on this card. Not sure exactly what it's called, I inked around a cloud die cut to make the cloudy background on the card below. I like the result though I feel I need more practise at this technique!

Here's the card:

Cardstock: Soft Suede, Gumball Green, Whisper White, Xpress Copic colouring card
Ink: Pool Party, Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle in Champagne, Copic markers - YR18, Y08, B00, R29, YG17, G03, B24, B18, E57, 0
Stamps: Critters from the past, Year four, Bake me a cake, Jessie's ABC's
Accessories / Tools: Critters from the past Lawn Cuts, Spring Showers Lawn Cuts, Year four Lawn Cuts, Ink blending tool, Grassy border Lawn Cuts, dimensionals, Clear Wink of Stella brush marker, glue tape

Update: My card received an Honorable Gnome award! I feel very honoured! Thanks very much to the Lawnscaping team, I really appreciate it! :)
