The Corrosive Challenge #155 - They Say It's Your Birthday

I'm back with my second post of the day to tell you about the new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge!  This fortnight, in honor of mine, the theme is "They Say It's Your Birthday"!  It's an easy and fun one and with a fabulous new sponsor too!  We are SO thrilled to welcome Krista Smith and Saturated Canary as our August sponsor!  Krista has generously offered 2 digis of choice to our monthly winner plus I have an extra surprise for participants who leave me some birthday wishes in a comment!

My card features the adorable Saturated Canary digi, Lioness.  She is supposed to be the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz, but I have used her as a representation my zodiac sign, Leo.  The amazing sketch is from The Sweetest Thing's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (#164).  And just FYI, Karen has an awesome prize up for grabs for this sketch - a $35 gift certificate to My Favorite Things!  I saw that and said "count me in"!  lol  

Lioness is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers, fussy cut, and popped up on foam squares.  

 Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Two: Sunshine.  I had fun with the sketch and used a big flower I received as a thank you gift in an I Brake For Stamps order of WOC flowers.  The center rose is Michaels Recollections.  

A bit of bling, a sparkly binder clip, a Martha Stewart border punch, and a cute chipboard sticker sentiment complete the card. 

I think I may keep this one for myself!  I just love how it turned out!  Please stop by The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what birthday wishes the rest of the design team have to share with you.  And I do hope you'll play along!

Markers used: Copics (E13, E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, E04, E23, E25, E31, E33, E34, Y32, Y38) and Prismcolor Art Markers (69).
