Happy Birthday sketch card with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Another January birthday party to go to!  So another birthday card.

I wanted to have some creative fun with my feet up, so I pulled out the good ole' Wacom tablet and started drawing in MTC (Make-the-Cut).  I found you can draw a lot smoother in MTC then you can in Silhouette Studio.  You can change around the smoothing and precision for drawing in MTC as well, which helped a lot with my flower sketch, which you can download for MTC here... flower sketch
To make card making easier this year, I invested in a 50 pack of 4x5.5 inch cards with envelopes in kraft color.  I added this to my mat and drew right on it.

I used layers in MTC as well, so that I could draw in different colors of Sharpie glitter paint markers using the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder.  To do this, it is as simple as turning off layers (clicking on the eye to turn off a layer).  As you can see I turned off the grass and flower stems and then drew the petals and happy birthday sentiment first. 
Then insert the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder into the Cameo & add the Sharpie paint marker into the holder.  Draw your images on a pressure of 8, and speed of 5.  Do not remove your mat from the machine.
Now swith the layers that are on and off, so that the grass and stems are now showing.  Replace your Sharpie paint marker in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder (you do not need to take the holder out of the machine) with a green marker.  Now draw these images.
This is a pretty simple card.  I did add some Viva Decor glitter glue to the center of my flowers.
