Happy Birthday, Jennibug!

Last Tuesday was my Jennibug's birthday.  She's one of my bestest Iowa friends.  We met shortly after I moved here.  She even introduced me to my husband and was the Maid of Honor at our Wedding.  

She forced me to read Hunger Games (which I did not enjoy, but I don't fault her for that).  We also play World of Warcraft and both of our main toons are Hunters.

Tomorrow we're celebrating her 31st birthday with our favorite Japanese grill, some bowling, and then off to see my beloved Drag Queens perform.  I had no clue what to do for a Jennibug Birthday card...

...that is, until I saw Saturated Canary's Gametime.

Perfect!  The current Saturated Canary Challenge is to use some office supplies, so I worked that in too.

Here is my card:

The card base is Kraft.  The background paper is FabScraps.

I colored Ms. Gametime using Copics:
Hair: E15, E17, E19, E77
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, BV01, C3
Eyes/Lips: YG07, YG06, R81, R83
Clothes/Bow: W1, W2, W4, W6, E55, E7, E74, E77, E79, C8, B41, B24, B97, B99
Arrow: W2 base, E19, E77

I used the Tim Holtz Butterfly Edges die cut out from Kraft paper.  I distressed using Salty Ocean, Burlap, and Concord distress inks and applied crystal gems for the bellies.  I painted the edges using the Snowcap Paint Dabber.

The flower is from Cricut's Flower Shoppe cartridge using Tim Holtz paper.  Again, I painted the edges using the Snowcap Paint Dabber.  I'm not sure where the arrow is from, it was in the random bucket.

 I cut out the tab using Papertrey Ink's Library die, distressed using Burlap distress ink, and stamped the Birthday sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Framed set.  Again, the paperclip is from the random bucket, but I think it Graphic 45.

That's it!  Thanks for looking!
