WWC238 - Tristan's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello and welcome!  This week it is all about occasions at Watercooler Wednesday and I chose to make a birthday card.  Tristan is our hostess this week.  Pop by the Watercooler Wednesday Challege website for more details and to link your creation.

WPlu9 Doodle buds stamps and coordinating dies.
I bought a new die, Sunny Studio Frilly Frame Stripe, so I wanted to incorporate it into my card design.  I started by making a background with my Kuretake watercolors and then added the overlay to my background. I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the floral images.  I wanted the sentiment to match so I inked a piece of cardstock with a coordinating Copic marker.  Learning lesson....Let the ink fully dry before attempting to die cut. The first sentiment stuck to the die and came out in 100 tiny pieces.
