Out Of This World!

Monday, 30 September 2013

Hello hello!

I hope you're all keeping well?  My flu is still here but a good bit better than I was last week.  I'm still coughing a lot, particularly at night which is annoying but hopefully it will disappear soon!

Time for a new challenge at Seems A Little Sketchy and our sponsor for this fortnight are My Grafico

They are offering one set up to $5 of winners choice

Here's our sketch for this challenge

And here is my card - we were given images by the sponsor to work with.

The cake and the little characters are all from My Grafico and were precoloured so I just had to print and cut them out.  I added the wording to the cake on the computer using a font called Sabrina.  I added some Glossy Accents to the aliens eyes - I was going to add some googly eyes, but I can't find them anywhere!  I have no idea where I put them!

The papers I have used are Bo Bunny from the Blast Off collection.  The glitter card is from a pack I bought in Tesco and the dies are Die-namics stacking stars and the shooting star is a Joanna Sheen Signature die.  I used a clear stardust pen over the sentiment so the light is making it hard to read in the picture - it says "Birthday wishes that are out of this world!".

The inside corresponds with the front with space to write on the cake.

 So please take a look at what the rest of the DT have done at Seems A Little Sketchy and join in yourself!

What a bright and cheerful card! You might want to try a tablespoon of warm honey and a quarter teaspoon of cinammon for your cough. Take it for 3 days if you can. Take care.
