Bismark Birthday

Hi there.  I was tidying up my working space and came across a digi image which is one by Mo Manning which has been sitting waiting to be used since before Christmas when I made this card here and I ran this extra one off but it never got used.  It is actually a Christmas image but I think it works OK as the only slightly Christmasy thing are the trees on the scarf.  I coloured it with some new pencils I bought whilst on holiday which are Polycolour by Koh-I-Noor and I think for the price they are pretty good.  

As you can see it was a simple card with just a matted layer behind the image and the added sentiment stamped using Versafine Majestic Blue Ink heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope I'll see you again soon.

P.S.  If anyone is interested I have a giveaway here which I will be keeping open until midnight on the 31st July but sorry only for followers or regular visitors living in the UK, so please check it out.

This super dog image does very well for a birthday card and it is great to use up items which are just hanging around waiting to be made into something.
