My Favorite Things - 2023 Card Design Superstar: Clean and Simple Genius

Hello inkers,

MFT's annual Card Design Superstar comp has rolled around again - I always like to have a bash and love to see the gallery as there are some truly amazing creations! This one's my entry to the Clean and Simple Genius category:

I used one of my favourite characters from Old Friends. I love the sentiments in this set. The little party hat is from BB Festive Old Friends - well he has to look like he's having a good time since he's the birthday boy doesn't he?

I thought I'd make him look a bit more snazzy and paper pieced his shirt and hat using some checked paper from the Sweet Celebration Paper Pad, then coloured them with Copics. It made me smile as the shirt reminded me of my much missed Dad who seemed to wear brighter and brighter clothes the older he got! Maybe he just didn't want to be invisible in his older age.

Hope you get the chance to join in and thanks for popping by!
