Kiersten The Knight

I created this birthday card using Kiersten The Knight from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and paired it with the optional April sketch from the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog.

I started with a black card base and added a layer of hot pink card stock and a layer of gray card stock. I then cut a piece of black card stock and embossed it using a dot embossing folder.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.  Instead of cutting the image into a circle I opted to cut it out in a rectangle and round the corners. I backed the image in hot pink card stock.  I added a strip of hot pink card stock and a strip of white card stock coming out from under the image and then stamped the sentiment "happy birthday" onto the piece of gray card stock. I added 3 black pearls at the top corner and 3 more black pearls at the opposite bottom corner. I also added 1 black pearl to the center of her shield.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
