It's Bea's Diva Birthday!

It's time for a Diva by Design Challenge!
This is how the Teddy Bo decopauge project prints up!

Our challenge for the next 2 wks is a super easy one! Lets celebratebirthdays! You could make a LO, a birthday card, a tag, an altered gift whatever you like as long as there is a birthday theme there somewhere. We are so lucky this wk to be sponsored by the fabulous Digis with attitude, whose images a few of our DT have used!

The Super talented DT have great projects to share as well,  Wow!  
Difference in color from print to adding Copic (see paws)
Come by and join us for the challenge this time, you have 2 wks to enter and don't forget our only restrictions are to stick to the theme, no backlinking and only enter twice! Thanks so much for coming by and good luck! 

So a few details:  I die cut the flowers from 4 matching DP, curled them with the embossing tool and dotted the inside w/liquid pearl, cut out the deco images assembeled them in order but embossed the top to be rounded.  Colored over the  printed ink to add some richer brown hue and assembeled the card!  Super simple to complete and fun!  I think it's more like therapy for me to have intricut cutting to do! lol
