Birthday Blessings

This card is for the 4th ODBD challenge, which is a sketch challenge. I used the image and sentiment from ODBD's Happy Birthday set. I colored the image with my lightest set of Copic Markers, and then I shaded a bit with the lightest of the regular series of colors, i.e. G01, BV02, etc. I realized after putting it together that to completely follow the sketch I should have done circles, and my circles should not have overlapped the bottom band. However, I decided I would enter it anyway and if they want to disqualify it, that's fine - I still like how it turned out and it's worth a shot to link to the challenge. I used DPs from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry, and I sponged them a bit with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used my Labels 5 Nesties and SU's scallop punch for the punched border. ODBD is having a second anniversary celebration coming up soon with daily challenges, and lots of give-aways, so I'm hoping I can participate in some of it at least. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely week.
