CDD February Digi Stamp Monthly Challenge - Birthday Card #2

          Good day to everyone! I wanted to remind you all that there is still time to join this month's CDD February Digi Stamp Monthly Challenge and as well share the second card I made for it. This month's theme is birthday so the card I made is using this darling CDD image called Birthday Lion. 
He is so darn cute and such a cheerful image that I had so much fun coloring him! I mean common just look at the adorable smile he has! Plus I love to do the "flicking" technique when I color with alcohol markers which I was able to do when coloring in his mane. I am still learning this technique but really enjoying it :)
          I would like to invite you to play along with us in the challenge for a chance to win a $10 code to use in the CDD Shop, so when you have finished at my blog click here to be taken to the CDD Facebook Gallery where you can find out the further details and upload your entry. You can also find the weekly free digital stamp over at the CDD Shop in which you can use for the challenge as long as it fits the theme. Isn't that awesome! Thanks so much for joining me today! I wish you all a wonderful week!
