A New Digital Artist !!

While I was recently leaving comments on another bloggers site, I came across these sweet images by Mary Ellen and couldn't resist adding a few to my ever growing collection.  This card features "Happy Birthday Cupcake Girl" and is available at Mary Ellen's Dearie Dolls here.

The image was printed on Copic Xpress It paper with my Epson printer, colored with Copics, and cut out with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles.  All of the layers were also cut with the Grand Scalloped Circle to make a circular easel card.  The dp is from Bo Bunny's Ad Lib collection, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Birthday Letter Seals collection, and the ribbon is from my stash.

If you love this little cutie check out Mary Ellen's site and stayed tuned to my blog as I have a few more images to color and show off.
