Challenge #53 Happy Birthday
Sketch used but background turned sideways and embellishments as layout.
I chose a digi doodle image for this card called "Sound of Innocence". The criteria was to incorporate the sketch above, the colour scheme burgundy, pink and cream, suitable for a best friend and hopefully elegant.
I coloured the image with copics and added a white gel pen to keys of piano. I sprayed the image with varnish and sprinkled a little glitter over the image. The papers were free from Crafters Companions members site. I used paper and ribbon scraps for the strips.
For the embellishments I used a brad, gems, pearls, flowers, and pearl beaded ribbon.
I like the colour scheme and think it does make the design look grown up and elegant.
Hope you agree, best wishes, Sharon
