Of course this is a Happy Birthday card. I used a Magnolia image from last year's Christmas collection that I hadn't used yet. I see several I haven't used. I will have to do something about that. :)
This little teddy is colored with copic markers. The ruffles on the apron has frosted lace stickles on it. I did the letters by hand. The strips down the sides are washi tape.
Now for the inside.
A series of pop-ups for presents that have washi tape on them for the wrapping paper. The bows are done with some twine from the Spot One section at Target. The little girl is a mini Tilda colored with copics. The happy birthday stamp is an one from the former angel company.
Here is a close-up.
I almost ruined the image. I took off the cap from E50 to put some highlights in her hair and it leaked. Fortunately it was a light color and was easily fixed. 
I got the idea for this pop-up from They wanted $6.00 for the pattern. Well, I am too cheap for that so I figured it out myself. If I were to do it again I make the pop-ups match the width of the washi tape. I added a little copic marker on the edges if they didn't match just right.

Hope you enjoyed.

How cute and clever. Love this idea for how to use washi tape. Tilda looks so cute hanging out with her presents. I don't see where the E marker leaked, so you did good covering it up! I hate when my markers leak. I had it happen once after I'd finished a whole image. I had to paper piece the face to fix it!
