HAPPY BIRTHDAY ... {Design Team Project August 2019 Color It Create It Show It Off}


Here is my August 2019 project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this fun Pets Boy from Sherri Baldy and you can purchase him HERE.

I have coloured him and added the sentiment and background in Photoshop CS3.
The circle embellishments have been created with circle punches and you can find the TUTORIAL for them elsewhere on my blog HERE, and the design papers and brads are from my stash.
