Birthday Blog Hop with Club KennyK

Today everyone at Club KennyK is celebrating our amazing DT coordinator Regan's birthday and we thought we'd surprise her with a Birthday Blog Hop.

Hope you're having a wonderful day

To participate in the hop:
Follow the list of DT & GDT blogs and leave a comment on all of the posts. Once you have completed the list hop over to the Kenny K Stamps blog and leave a birthday message for Regan. Becoming a blog follower isn't necessary to win, but it would be very much appreciated. 
We'll ask Regan to choose her favourite comment from those left on the Kenny K Stamps Blog to receive a prize (make sure you've left a comment on all the stops on the hop too). Closing date is Saturday 13th Aug at midnight EST.
(list follows at the bottom)

I have made a colourful card using the retro image 'Drama Queen'. This is such a fun image to colour.  I have added a sentiment using Photoshop as I wanted to continue the whole comic book look. 
To create the card I have gone all-out Papermania, using their Capsule Collection 'Spots & Stripes: Brights' (patterned paper, ribbon, bow & Big Bloomers).  The circles were cut using X-Cut nesting circle dies and I have inked all the edges black with a Whispers ink pad.  The finishing touches are a button and twine in the centre of the flower.

Promarkers I have used are: Burnt Orange, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Lipstick, Berry, Crimson, Cobalt Blue, Arctic Blue, Mustard, Gold, Raw Sienna, Pine, Forest, Apple, Aubergine, Plum, Mulberry, True Blue & Sky Blue.

Thank you for taking a look at my card.  Please leave a comment and follow the list below to continue with our Birthday Blog Hop.
