Well, we are FINALLY in our new home and are still in awe of the fact that "we live here?"! After only being here a little over a week, I'm maintaining a slow and steady pace unpacking, as life still goes on around us. I've finally set up a temporary workspace in my craft room until I can truly get that room situated, and I got to play in there a bit yesterday. I am so thrilled to say that my first card made in my new home is for my very best friend in the whole wide world, Jen del Muro, and today is her birthday! What's more, a few of the Reverse Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends and I are thrilled at the chance to surprise Jen with a celebratory blog hop in her honor and share birthday inspiration using REVERSE CONFETTI! Happy Birthday, Jen del Muro! I love you, bestie! Hope you like your SURPRISE!!
The Candles 'n Confetti Birthday Hop started over at Stacey's blog HERE and you should've made your way here by way of Tracey's blog HERE. If not, make sure you start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss a thing!
For my card, I used OLIVER OWL and colored him up with my Copics. Then I layered and layered using the August Sketch For You To Try (there's still a few days to participate, y'all!). Oliver sits atop a background made with the scallop rectangle from the LOVE NOTE and the DIAGONAL STRIPE PRETTY PANEL Confetti Cuts dies. I used a few more dies which are pictured below.

SUSIE Q-TIP: When you want to add just a hint of color with your Copics to an area of your stamped image, try using a very light color and just draw inside the line image with that color. Then take a blender pen and blend it out until that color fades into the white center of the area. That's what I did on his little collar on my card using a very pale mint green and his eyes pop more with a hint of icy blue around the edges.
