Happy Birthday Kathy!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am joining many ladies in honoring Kathy Jakopovich's birthday.  

We all made something using Peachy Keen Stamps to honor such a wonderful woman.  We are all uploading pictures of our projects to The Peachy Place to surprise Kathy.   She is such a great person.  Love her to pieces!

I created a card using my favorite stamp release from Peachy Keen.  (You can find the full release here.)  

I used Bazzill Card Shoppe Cardstock and Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangle and Circle dies to create the front panel.  

Then I stamped it with the Peachy Keen Stamps Chinese Swirls background stamp in pastel blue Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  

The Clown from the Peachy Keen Stamps June 2014 Release was stamped on a white circle of Papertrey Ink cardstock with My Favorite Things Black Liquorice Hybrid Ink. 

I colored the clown with Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits.  I thought the color from pencils would work with the color of the cardstock better than Copics.  ;-)

I added Wink of Stella to his hat and bow tie, glossy accents to his glasses, and white gel pen to his shirt (polka dots), bow tie, and hat.  

The front of the card was finished off with a bit of twine and Doodlebug Sequins.  

To complete the inside, I stamped the full clown with ticket from the June 2014 release set in Desert Sand Memento Ink..and the sentiment in the hybrid ink so it popped.  

Be sure to pop over to The Peachy Place and wish Kathy a very Happy Birthday!!!
