A Bonkers Birthday

Having just won over at CCC Digi Creations I had to play with my new Sassy Studios Digis.  My husband's client's wife has a birthday coming up, so I thought I'd use 'Buttercream Babe - Mad Hatter' as they're really fun people!
I coloured her up with a rainbow of Promarkers (crazier the better for Mad Hatter I think - away with colour theory!) and added a fitting sentiment (using Alice In Wonderland font).  These I placed on a simple striped background paper.
I have a big bag of mixed buttons which I haven't used for a while, so added 3 random ones to continue the theme then added a couple of glittery flourishes and flowers to finish off.  The flowers are held with big brads which I coloured with gold Sharpie as I'm running out of colours!

  • Buttons by DoCrafts
  • Flowers by Petaloo
  • Brads & glitter card by Dovecraft
