Birthday Elvis

A super fast post of a card I made today, alas no pics as I was going along as I was also trying to make a video of how I do my candles and what a frustrating job that was grrrrrrrr. I totally forgot to get my camera out for the usual snaps of how I put my cards together and to remind me on what I did hahahahaha.

Anyway, for this card I have used a digi I won in last weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge from the Birthday Elvis set by Digital Stamp Boutique.  Not my usual sort of image to work with but oh what a sweetie this hedgehog is and I had great fun :)

I used brown card and then layered more black, blue and dark brown mounts on top with a final mat of the same card I used for the base.  The black, blue and top mounts were all embossed with two different Embossilicous folders.  Spellbinders Grand Squares and Scallop Square dies were used to do the die cutting and I was over the moon to find the perfect ribbon in my stash to embellish my card with.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and I chalked the backgrounds on both the digi and the sentiment.  I should add, the sentiment is part of the Birthday Elvis pack too and what a corker it is, don't you think :)

To finish off I add a bit of micro glitter and and also stitching on the blue mount.

Than you so much Digital Stamp Boutique for my fab gift and Mr. Random for picking me out the hat :) :) :)
