Pure Magic

Today I'm sharing a special birthday card ~ one I made for my favorite nephew a couple of months ago.  I'm sure it made it from SC all the way to AZ although you know sometimes we just have to assume it does.  Our kids, grandkids and others all are busy raising their families and dealing with the daily issues.  I know that he always enjoys receiving cards I've made and that in itself makes me one happy aunt. 

This stamped image is from Penny Black, Inc. and is appropriately named 'WIZ'.  

He's one of my Christmas presents and I love the details in the folds of his robe.

After stamping on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used my Copic markers for coloring this image.  I also stamped the sentiment from the same package using Versa Claire Monarch.

The 6" card base is covered in the coolest paper! I wish I could claim credit for making it, but I can't.  It's a result of cutting all of my 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper into 6 x 6 several months ago.  Quite a task but one of the best things I've done as a card maker to help me see and use my papers. This muted purple with splashes of pink, tan and gold was just perfect to go with the wizard and complete the card front.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
