A challenge card!

Monday, 17 August 2009

Here's the first challenge card I've made in ages! I felt I had to join this challenge for "week 1" as I'm such a fan of Basic Grey.

So the challenge this fortnight at Basic Grey Challenge is a fab sketch from Tara G:

Photobucket

And here's my card:

This cutie is from Whipper Snapper and I coloured her with my promarkers

The papers are from Basic Grey (I can't remember which set - I'll have to look it up later and I'll add it then) and ribbon, charm and swarovski crystals are from my stash. I glittered around the edge of the image mount, and cut out a heart with my cuttlebug die.

Photobucket

This is the inside:

I used the inside bit of the heart from the front (and another one) and glittered the whole thing and with the other one, I coloured it with a clear stardust pen and then coated it with glossy accents (I think that's the right one!) The wording was all adapted to suit how the cutsie wee girl would say it! ie, "Happy Birfday!"

Thanks for dropping by!
