Hula Birthday

Now that I've got a growing collection of Copic markers, I've really started to enjoy coloring again and this Hula Anya stamp was so much fun! I made this card last week though, and I'm afraid I didn't write down which Copics I used, so I won't be able to share that with you - sorry! In addition to having fun coloring Anya, I also had fun making her nice and sparkly! The picture doesn't show it, but I painted the flowers in Anya's hair with Opal Shimmerz, so they're really pretty in real life. And then of course there's the Stickles! I used Stardust Stickles on the centers of the flowers, on her bikini top, and on the yellow circle. And then I used Crystal Stickles on the lines of her hula skirt.

The strip of Spring Rain cardstock was stamped with the SU Canvas background stamp, which I haven't used in ages, but I knew I was saving it for a reason! The flower embellishment on the circle is a felt flower with a vintage button in the center, attached with embroidery floss.
