Mo's Lucky 13 Challenge!

The fear of the number 13 is that's a real mouthful!

No need to fear this number 13! It's Mo's thirteenth challenge! Our hostess this month is Lisa Cook, and she's challenged us to make a birthday card using any one of Mo's fabulous images.

I've used two for this card....the pile of presents from "Bronte Wants it Now" and  the image of Bella (minus Bronte!) from "Hoppin' Happy". They were cropped and printed using my PrintWorks program. The cake is a digital image that I believe I got from a coloring book site. 
The images were colored with Copics. I used the "out-of-the-box' technique for the main image so that she looks as if she's jumping out of the frame. The main panel and the sentiment tag were popped up using mounting tape, and I used large dimensional dots to pop up the cake. If I recall correctly the DP is from Bo Bunny's  Rob & Bob collection, but I've had it for so long that I'm not sure. The card stock is from Stampin' Up!.

Now don't be you afraid of the number 13! Hop over to Mo's Challenge Blog to enter a birthday card for a chance to win a wonderful  image from Mo!

This is too cute, I love how you colored her boots different from the rest of her outfit, just like a little girl would probably wear.
