A Little Girl's 5th Birthday (Pink Gem Design image and Scrapper's Delight background)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My second and final card to show for tonight and this time I did some experimenting again. This time creating a background with Scrapper's Delights png images and then adding a Pink Gem Designs png black and white image to colour with my copics. This is a lot of fun to create the background this way, I wanted the little girl sitting on a swing so I made it the perfect size for her and then added the fence, plants, sky, butterflies etc. Have you tried this? Scrapper's Delights have kits with 100's of different items in them so every use is unique. 

I used one of my lesser used dies to make the card shape and I haven't used my polaroid and film dies so this was a great opportunity to use them together.
