Happy Times Challenge #423 ~ The Paper Shelter

Hey All! Today I am playing with Happy Times from The Paper Shelter. The Paper Shelter challenge for this week is Birthday. Since I have been sick and getting caught up on my posts, this was perfect timing! I had actually made this card for my dentist.. yes another card for our dentist. His birthday is just before my son Stephen's birthday.

He is a child of the '70s, as am I, so I knew this would be a perfect image to use. The Happy Times Mega Pack comes with 2 other images as well that are a lot of fun.

I also added the stitched chevron die to add some texture and fun. I also added a bit of twine to add a bit of depth and separation.

The last thing I added was the sentiment. I cut that out using a long flag die.

The Copic markers I used are:

Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R30
Hair: E41, 42, 43, 44, 47
Jeans: B91, 93, 95, 97, 99, W3
Shirt: B12, 14, 16, 18
Shoes: R27, 24, C0, 1
Rocks: T3, 5, 6
Hammock: E81, 84, 87
Newspaper: E41, 42
Grass: YG23, 25, 93, 99, G24, 99
Trees: E31, 34, 33, 35, 37
Sky: B0000, 000, 00, 01

Here is the video I made of me coloring the image with Copic markers and putting the card together. I hope you enjoy the video:
