Magical Birthday

Good morning, I hope the week is going well for you so far...mine is going very fast, probably because of the long weekend I'm a day behind! At least I remembered to post my DT cards today! This one is for our new challenge at Creative Moments...the optional theme this fortnight is 'Birthdays' a lovely easy challenge! We have 2 lovely sponsors :


I have used a Mo Manning image to make my card, I've had this gorgeous wizard lurking in my folder for some time and was itching to colour him...and as I'm really trying to make more masculine themed cards at present , this was the perfect opportunity. He's coloured with copics...loads of sparkle pen on his crystal ball (rather more than I intended came out really fast, must have squeezed the pen a tad hard :). The purple paper behind the image is embossed with a spider web, the edges distressed and embossed with a bit of frantage.

For more inspiration check out what my teamies have been up to by clicking here to visit the challenge blog.
Thanks for looking, will be back later today with my Fab N Funky Dt card
