Birthday Cheers


I colored Sew Many's Eris the Elephant With my alcohol markers. I keep wanting to paint the toenails pink or red - LOL. Anyway, I used a quickcuts embossing folder simply named Circles for my decorated rectangles and inked them in brown or dusk blue respectively. I used a pre-adhesive yellow ribbon. Then I took a scrap of the blue cardstock, rubbed the sentiment on and coated it with clear embossing powder several times. After hunting for three matching buttons, I threaded them with some variegated yellow embroidery thread and tied them into bows. I then used my trusty Scotch Quick dry Adhesive (it wasn't not quite dry when this picture was taken but I have a deadline to make)
