Special Wishes to those with an April Birthday

This card was made for the Mojo Monday 235-challenge. 

Both stamp sets used are from Penny Black:  Big Wish and Gratitude.  This Penny Black set reminds me of my Granddaughter.  Copic markers (pictured below) were used to color the image.  Antique Linen distress ink was used to finish off the image circle cut with a Spellbinder Die.  The patterned paper is from a 6 x 6 Cosmo Cricket "Pixie-Licious".  The solid papers are ones I created using a technique from Tim Holtz.  I used distress ink to color the paper and then added Ranger Fine detail clear embossing powder and then heat set it. This was used on  the background behind the stamped image, the green border cut with a Spellbinder Edgeabilities and the paper ribbon.  Archival black ink was used to stamp the sentiment before adding the embossing powder on the paper ribbon.  The Distress Ink colors used were Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Tattered Rose.  A purple bow was added to finish off the sketch challenge.  A fun card to make.  Hope you enjoy.
