Celebrate

Hi all!  Just popping in to share another birthday card that I made recently.  I took the opportunity to use this adorable image called Unicorn Mae from Some Odd Girl that I had colored up a while ago but just never had the time to put on a card.  I did a couple of different things with this image that I thought I'd take a second and share :)  First thing, and one of the main reasons I LOVE digi stamps, is that I flipped my image in Word before I printed her so that she's a mirror of the original.  Sometimes it's helpful if you are doing a specific layout on your card but in this instance I just wanted to do something a little different but didn't want to crop the image or anything like that.  This is a simple way to slightly switch things up.  The second thing I did was draw in the clouds behind her with my Copics.  I followed this tutorial on Youtube by Annika Ryan from Another Messy Crafter and, considering it was my first try, I think it turned out okay; I'm looking forward to trying it again.  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card- I hope you like it!
