The Kraft Journal: Inks, Paints or Markers

Hello Everyone!

I'm popping in quickly to share a card I made for this week's The Kraft Journal.  We were asked to use Inks, Paints or Markers. 

My card:

One of my best friends from high school birthday is on the 4th of July, so I made her this birthday card.  How fun to have a day off from work every year, don't you agree?  The base is Kraft cardstock, followed by pretty paper from Pebbles.  I used copic markers (R29 and B24)  to color the balloons and the wheels of the bicycle.  The image was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I popped up the balloons and the basket using dimensionals.  The sentiment is from SU! Itty Bitty Banners.  Lastly, I added some rhinestones to the top and bottom of the card.  I hope my friend likes it!

I'm also submitting my card over at Word Art Wednesday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. This is just DARLING, Martha! What lovely colors and patterned papers, and the bicycle is just adorable.
