Happy Birthday Dudley!

Happy Thursday!
I know it's been a bit quiet around here this week...I was so busy last week that I didn't have any time to make up my normal DT creations for both Paper Makeup and Tuesday Throwdown...but I fortunately have very understanding teams that let my poor time management slide :)

But I'm here today with a new post for the Little Miss Muffet challenge!!  I'm so happy to be a guest designer there this month, and just love using their images!

The challenge for the next 2 weeks is Buttons!  I love buttons.  My collection is very small, but I work with what I have, and love the fact that I can always color them to make them fit perfectly with my card.  I didn't have to do that with this card though :)
I used the awesome image Dudley Balloon for my card and colored him in with my ShinHan markers.  I was a bit nervous, won't lie...all that open space on his body was tough for me to color and shade just right.  I'm still not a pro with the markers and I'm missing a few colors in the middle to get nice even shades...but I think in the end it turned out pretty cute :)

I added a few coordinating buttons along the side and a little glitter to the balloon.  I can't ever get enough glitter...somehow I always end up reaching for my wink of stella pens :)

Be sure to stop by Little Miss Muffet and join in the fun challenge!!
