Letters B and C

Trying to get caught up with these letters :) Here are letters B and C.

Letter B: The challenge is to make a birthday card using numbers on it.

Inside photo: I figured I would include this photo. Otherwise, you wouldn't know it was for a birthday ;)

Close up of the applique numbers. If you haven't worked with this stuff yet, give it a try. I love it! Fun and easy to use and comes in different colors (for another example see the post with my mini coffee mug chipboard album). So far, I have collected white, black, red and green. Oh the possibilities! I am a texture junkie at about you?

Products used:
Card: DCWV Textured
Stamps: Pink Paislee (Rocket); Autumn Leaves (Numbers); Cloud 9 (Stars on the inside of card)
Inks: Archival Ink Jet Black (Ranger); Brilliance Moonlight White (Tsukineko)- applied with stipple brush to card base for clouds
Ribbon: Michael's
Also used: Bic Mark-Its; Black Liquid Applique- heat embossed to make rocket blast and to trace over the number stamps; Souffle Pens (Sakura; used for inside greeting)

Moving on....

Letter C: The challenge is to use a coloring tool and to pop an image or 2 on the card as well.
I colored my transparency flowers with Tim Holtz's Alcohol Inks and Refillable Pens. They are so much fun! Takes some getting used to at first :) My raised images are 2 of the flowers. I have to remind myself to get some tiny pop dots. I have to cut some larger ones to fit behind the crystals. That got a little crazy. I just wonder why every time I work with pop dots they end up in my hair????? Grrr.....
