Sweet Girly Birthday Wishes
Here's a sweet little birthday card I've made...
The little girl and her puppy are some new stamps that my friend Lisa gave me for Christmas and the Birthday Wishes and little flowers are part of the "Eat Cake" Stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used some copic markers to colour her in and paper-pieced her little handbag with the same orange star paper I used to create the background to the card.
The main background paper is from Stampin Up and is as old as the hills, but it has all the mid blue, orange and yellow tones that I wanted and it feels good to use up some of those things that have been hanging around and make something fresh and new with it.
I was so inspired again this week by the fantastic design team and vibrant colours of this week's CR84FN Color Challenge #45 inspiration board, that I had to play along!! These are not colours that I usually reach for, but I had so much fun putting this card together...lots of layers, beautiful vibrant colours, a sweet image to colour and some lovely stamps...
I played along with the SKETCHBOOK SATURDAY CHALLENGE #44- Chupa created a beautiful sketch this week on her Random Acts of Creativity Blog - pop on over and take a look if you have the time :)
I am also entering this into the "Happy 3rd Birthday Charisma Cardz!" Challenge #1 The lovely ladies over at the Charisma Cardz Challenges Blog have a special birthday week long challenge and some great prizes up for grabs to celebrate turning 3!
That's all from me for today - Enjoy your Friday!!
