Kenny K's Birthday Rockers

This card was so much fun to make. I've been in awe of Kenny K's awesome images for awhile and even treated myself to a few. Then I gave into the intimidation of bringing them to life, and they sat on the corner of my desk. My lovely niece recently celebrated her 18th birthday and I knew she'd be the perfect person to receive my first Kenny K card. She is such a joy in my life and I'm so excited to see her life unfold into adulthood.

Kenny K ‘s Challenge #19 ~ Sparkle and Dots
My dots and sparkle can be found in my pink designer paper. I also used Spicas to give my girls a bit of sparkle.

The challenge is to be inspired by love - something I love (crafting), a technique I love (coloring with Copics), for a person I love (my beautiful niece on her 18th birthday)

My Creation
Image Detail

To try and limit my ever growing scrap pile, I often try to use any tidbits from the front of the card on the inside for a bit of decoration.
