Well, I’m still away…I just remembered I had this card made up and ready to post, so I thought I would - post it that is!!This is the card I made for my nephew’s daughter for her Ninth birthday. I’ve used one of the adorable Swiss Pixies by CC Designs – available at All That Scraps; this is Sweetheart Birgitta; she is coloured with Copics with some Diamond Stickles on her little wings. Digistamps 4 Joy wants us to use an image of a child; I'm not sure if Pixie children count, but I'm entering there so we'll soon see :-)
I used purple card from DCWV Jewel collection for the base and mats; DCWV Endless Summer for the spotty panel – the spots are nice and glittery, and Kaisercrafts Magic Happens collection for the stripy panel. The inside is finished with the same papers.
I cut all the mats with Nestabilities Labels Twelve, inking the edges of the image panel with some Kaisercraft ink.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed.
The number nine is a sort of ribbon slider, so I threaded some really wide pink organza ribbon through the middle of it - using wide ribbon makes the rest of the ribbon "puff" out and look like a bow. Cupcake Craft Challenges want us to "use a number" - here's a number, so I'm in!!
Craft Your Passion has "Anything Goes" this week, Allsorts Challenge is Free and Easy and Sir Stampalot has Whatever You Fancy so I'm entering there.
Hope you like my great-niece's (eeww, KNEW that would make me sound OLD!!) card, I'll be back in a few days with another card. Until then, Happy Crafting, Dee (I'm off now back to my little cabin with today's purchase; the BEST port I've ever tasted to go with the goats cheese I found yesterday; who needs "proper" food anyway?! lol)
