Happy Birthday Akemi

My friend Jenny's daughter had her 6th birthday party yesterday and I've been saving this image for her card.  As soon as I saw this digi from Spesch months ago, I thought of her because she has a favorite stuffed bunny she's had since she was a baby.  I colored her up with my Copic markers and thanks to my class, I finally have a staple of pink shades I like (see below for more details).  All the designer paper I used is from Pebbles and I love everything about these papers.  OMG such delicious colors and the fronts and backs all coordinate so beautifully.  Also, each has one strip of border like the hearts I used in the middle of the card.

 I saw an idea from McKenzie Bruckler's blog where she colored a Pink Cat Studio image, enlarged it and copied it on T-shirt transfer paper and ironed it onto a shirt.  I thought I'd give it a whirl and make one for Akemi.  I embellished the neckline by sewing on some fun buttons and this was so much fun to do.  I can't wait to try it again.

Copic Tips:
Did you know you can tell the brush side of your marker by the gray marking/ring that's right below the cap?  (Duh, I didn't know this until now)

My favorite new Copic pink combination is R81, R83, R85
