I coloured the image with Copics and added Stickles to the streamers. My Mums Craft Shop Challenge is Here Come The Girls...so here comes Lucy!
The patterned papers are from Kaisercraft (yes, again!) this is the Bubblegum Hills collection, and the gorgeous background paper with it's raised metallic spots is part of my Christmas gift from son Chris -who got it from the fabulous Starfish Lane, along with some other lovely papers that you'll see over the next few months :-) The Sweet Stampin' challenge is Spots and Dots and Simon Says and Moving Along With The Times both have "Spots and or Stripes", my spotty number is getting me in to these challenges. Crafty Creations, Crafty Calendar, and Crazy 4 Challenges and Cupcake Craft Challenges all want us to use something New; along with this brand new image my yummy paper is new, so I'm in!
I used the sketch from Totally Gorjuss, a nice straightforward one which suits me fine :-)
I cut the image panel out with Nestabilities Labels Nine. and as I used the largest one in the set, I freehanded the mat behind it from blue card by American Crafts. Digital Tuesday has Punch it Out and Papertake Weekly has "Die Cute" (use a die and make it cute, tick tick) so I'm entering there.
I used the photo inspiration over at Cupcake Inspirations; I love the colours and thought it was perfect for this image, so suited to a little girl's card. Celebrate The Occassion has Child's birthday as its theme so I'm entering there too. I love the bold colours , it's summer here and I think this card screams summer-colour. The current challenge over at Sundays with Chrissy is Beat the mid winter blues and at Copic Oz it's Summer, so I'm entering there.
The sentiment is a digi from Bizzy Becs. It comes on a sheet with 20 others (all different) and I use the crop function in Word to isolate the one I want to print. There's loads of sheets to choose from... and they're on special at the moment, so are extra good value :-) I coloured it with Copics and cut it out freehand.
I used a nice matt pink button from my stash and bakers twine I won in a candy last year... the first bit of candy I ever won (thanks Tracy, it's still going strong!)
Crafty Emma's Store challenge is an Anything Goes one, so I'm definitely entering that, All That Scraps Challenge is Anything Goes too... I can't enter - but YOU can :-)
This card is doing double duty as a gift card holder so I finished the inside (using papers from the front, as usual) with a pocket to hold the gift card (which I haven't bought yet so I had to use one of my loyalty cards as a prop for this photo, lol) Instead of just slipping the card in to the pocket, I made a simple tag and attached the card to it with removable tape... when I get time I may doll the tag up a bit :-) I mainly wanted to add the eyelet because I got a set of eyelet setters and some eyelets for Christmas and have been dying to try them out... may need a little practice, methinks!
Anyway, that's it for today, don't forget you can check out the rest of the digi teams offerings over at the All That Scraps blog. I'll have more of the new CC Designs to show next week, but I'll be back in a day or so with "something". Hope to see you back here soon' until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
