SOFTPENCIL THURSDAY- MICHU & BIG FLOWERS

I didn't post 1 single thing on my blog yesterday for the first time in a very long time.  The youngest of my 4 children started school yesterday and we also did a lot of running around after school - dr. appts., hair cut, grocery, soccer practice, etc.  But, I am back today with SOFTPENCIL THURSDAY and I'm super excited to share my card with you because it's the first time I have used my air brush system!!

First, please visit both SOFTPENCIL BLOG and SOFTPENCIL SHOP to learn about new products, challenges SOFTPENCIL is sponsoring, Elizabeth's EXCITING news and purchasing all of SOFTPENCIL'S AWESOME products.  We also hope you will stop by SOFTPENCIL GROUP on PCP to chat with us and show off your SOFTPENCIL creations!

Today the DT got to work with one of my favorite images, MICHU and the BIG FLOWERS.  This image is just so much fun and I decided it would make a GREAT birthday card, especially with the sentiment I found in one of my Lizzie Anne Designs sets.

My card fits in with the following challenges as well:
CREATE 4 FUN - birthday card
FUN WITH SHAPES AND MORE dots, swirls, flowers and text.  (My background DP and ribbon both have dots).
MELJEN'S DESIGNS - Happy birthday
FOR FUN CHALLENGES - ribbon or lace
CCEE - sketch
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - no punches or dies
HANNA & FRIENDS - pearls and swirls
KAH-WINK-E-DINK - birthday
PARTY TIME TUESDAYS - kids' birthday

SU tempting turquoise is base of card.  SOFTPENCIL image is airbrushed with Copics by masking the image.  Image then colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas and inner parts of flowers gone over with Ranger gloss.  Pearls are Prima.  Lizzie Anne Designs sentiment is stamped in SU tempting turquoise ink.  DPs are Doodlebug and Fancy Pants designs.  Ribbon is from my stash.  All cutting done with personal trimmer.  Thanks so much for looking and please let me know what you think:)
