Celeste gives you some advice - Art Impressions

Hello AI fans!

Hope you're having an amazing start to your weekend, and hopefully it's a long one for you if you're in the states and celebrating Labor Day. Today I've got a birthday card for you that features the wonderful Celeste sku# U4331 offering you up some advice about women and their age with My Advice sku# G1682 .  :)  

I loved coloring her animal print top and then I paper pieced the sofa with some coordinating paper.

Placing the sentiment rolling off the wooden spool added a really fun element to the card, I think! I love how it looks!

And a close up look at the flower with the leaves

Copic markers used:
E000, 00, 11, 04, 21, 23, 51, 53, 55, 57, 97, 99, and 17
R20, 17, 37, and 89
Y23, 26, and 28
YT 21 and 23
BG90 and 93


Hope I didn't bore you with too many pictures today! Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your weekend, and hope you have some time to get crafty! Hugs!
