Kenny K 30th Birthday Card

TGIF, everybody! Another weekend is upon us and the weather here has suddenly turned spring-like with temps around 80 F. I had my doors and windows open all afternoon and just closed them around 10:30 tonight. The moon and stars were shining brightly with only the wispiest of clouds in the sky. It's hard to believe that it's the middle of winter and that it's freezing cold in the northern sections of the country. I hate the Texas summers but the rest of the year is almost perfect.

Today, as promised, I have a card I made for the Friday Copics/ Promarkers challenge at The Outlawz. I actually posted the card there last night because I knew I would get a late start writing my post for my blog and that challenge ends tonight. The theme for the challenge was "Milestone Birthdays" and I used a Kenny K digi called Happy Hour, which is available for purchase in Kenny's online store.

I used a blue monochromatic color scheme with accents in silver. All three of the papers I used for the background have been in my stash for several years so I'm not sure who the maker was.

As you can see, I kept the design relatively simple in comparison to my usual style so that I can use it for either male or female. 

I used Judikins Diamond Glaze on the martini glass and the eyes to give them a glassy effect.

   The "Big 30" was created with stickers.

Here's a closeup of the image. I love the retro feel of it.

Above is the inside of the card, again a simple design using a different blue paper.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

The Outlawz Firday Copic/Promarkers Challenge - Milestone Birthdays
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - Glitz and Glam
Crafting By Designs - Polka Dots
Inky Impressions - #94 Celebrations
Perfect Sentiments - PSC63: Blue, Silver, & White

That's it for today but I'll be back in a couple of days with another new card. I'm still working on the giveaway I'm planning and that will be coming up soon as well. Don't forget that there is a challenge going on at Kenny K's Krafty Krew and a new will be starting on Sunday with Team B at the helm. This week the theme is "Vintage". You still have time to get your entry in. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog. Your comments are always appreciated. So until next time...

Happy crafting!
