Kraftin' Kimmie - Happy Birthday Card

Hi guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, it was a long weekend here, in New South Wales. I spent Saturday getting dressed up, and going for dinner on the harbour with some lovely friends, to watch the fireworks, before hitting the town... This is me, all dressed up, and ready to go.... 
Anyway, I had an amazing time, and would do it all over again, in an instant! On to my card for today...
This is one of my all time favourite Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, I believe her name is Lucy... I stamped and coloured her up, using my spectrum noir markers, then selected my patterned paper, in this case, it's Amy Tangerine, and doodled around the border before mounting it on some black card, and then onto the white card base. For the main image panel, I wanted it to look like she was sitting on a blackboard. So, I grabbed some black card, my lightest grey pencil, and sketched where the shadows would fall with her sitting. I then grabbed my anti-static pillow (for embossing) and dropped it a few times, to give the look of chalk dust. I doodled around the edges with a white gel pen, before attaching it to a piece of brown sugar card. The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie, and was stamped, then freehand cut to make a pennant shaped banner. I added some rose embellishments as well as a speech bubble paper clip, to finish off this card.
