Happy Birthday Heather! This card has sign language inside!

My close friend, Heather's, birthday is today! Since it fell on the weekend, I decorated her office Friday before she got there. decorations will have to be in another post as a friend is sending the pictures. I forgot my camera. I did get pictures of the card I made her using my explore though! I drew her name on the front using the silver cricut pen that came with the explore.
The girl on the chaise lounge and the flip flops/sunglasses were from pack your bags circut cartridge that I was able to use with my design space subscription. Heather loves green, so I tried to use a lot of green. I had to use blue to mat the card so that the other greens would show up better. The girl had to layers one black and one flesh tone. Heather has gold and brown hair. So, I cut both pieces in white and I colored all but the hair in the base layer black and the hair with golden yellow and mahgoney and a touch of clay. Love the touch twin markers! The girl's body was colored barely biege. I added a little light green to the swim suit to add detail. To the card, I added ctmh epoxy bubbles. I just love these! Heather has been learning sign language because she wants to work with special needs children, so I drew the inside of the card with happy birthday spelled with each letter of sign language.  She said she could read it well. Here's the inside:
Cricut made a cartridge for sign language. I found it in my subscription. I like how well it drew it out. I used my pilot v5 pen. My next post will show how well the pliot v5 draws subway art in the explore. Thanks for stoping by!
Supplies used: barely biege twin touch marker
