Hannah's Birthday Card

Hannah Marie Strempke celebrated her 16th birthday today with a pizza party at Round Table Pizza that is located close to their house. She is the middle daughter of our oldest daughter Elizabeth. Her actual birthday is March 4th.

Hannah loves pandas so I made this card for her. I've used the same image on cards for her on other birthdays.

I CASED the layout, sort of, from one I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. The CASE had a couple more layers and an inchie was used as the image. I stamped a bamboo stamp on the red layer using Versamark ink. I think I need a new pad because it does not show up very well. The only coloring I did was to color the bamboo the panda is holding. I used Copic G85 Verdigris (a dark green) for the bamboo and C1 Cool Gray to create a highlight around the panda. A chop stamp and some gold cord around the fold of the card finished it off. I will have pictures of her party on my other blog later, if not tonight then tomorrow.
