Sweet 16

My husband's niece is going to be celebrating her 16th birthday later this month. This is the card I'm planning to give her :)



The cake image I used is a digi image from Mellymoopapercrafting. I got a chance to practice using the Copic markers some more but I still need to learn more about them. There was also a lot of fussy cutting on the bottom of the cake and I realized I probably should have gotten the Honeybee precision scissors rather than the Martha Stewart ones as it might be even more precise with a flatter blade. I went with a more fun background (thanks to my husband's advice) rather than my original thought of using a black with polka dot background that would give it a more sophisticated feel. It's interesting how the background paper can totally change how a card will be perceived.

I'm entering this card into a new digi image challenge blog at Digi Haven. This is the second digi image I've used in my cards and I think it's good practice to try different styles. I think my preference is still playing around with stamps, inks, and paper though. I'm also entering it in the Clip n' Cuts Link Manager Challenge.
