Amy's Birthday Card


Today's card is for my friends birthday!  A group of us are going to the casino to celebrate and I thought this image would be the perfect!  The image is called Slot Machine Birdbrain by From The Heart Stamps.  I colored her with copics, glam pink stickles for eye shadow, copper stickles on the pennies, yellow stickles for the light rays, gold wink of stella on the crown, 1 cent, and dollar sign.  The layout is i{heart} Sketch #168.   I used Lawn Fawn large stitched square to cut her out.  The waves were  peppermint candy clip art that I imported into Silhouette Studio, modified, and cut out.  Striped paper is from Doodlebug Designs Hello Sunshine 6x6 pad and the rest is Bo Bunny dots.  Googly eyes from my stash and sentiment printed from Silhouette Studio.
