Birthday Times

Good Morning Everyone, 

Howe are we all today? Nearly the weekend again, really this year is flying bye. 

Today I have a card for you for Patties Creations Challenge Blog. 

This fortnights theme is "Birthday" 


For this card I used one of Patties Images called Pansies In Pitcher  

I love this images, the detail is great on it, and you can do any colour combination you want as Pansies come in all colours.





 I used baby pink card for the base, and used a pink and white stripe paper stock and cut it into four panels and spaced them out I edged each piece with distress inks and then went around them with a black fine liner and added faux stitching

For the Topper section I used a cuttlebug embossing folder again using the baby pink card, I used a technique I seen recently on a Creative Expressions show, were they used the twinkling cosmic shimmer paint pod (I used my Twinkling H20) and used the black side of the cut and dry foam and rubbed it over my card, it picked up on just the embossing section and gave a lovely "twinkle" to the card.

I cut the image out using the spellbinder label die and coloured the image in using promarker pens, adding shading to appropriate places.

To finish the card I added three white butterflies around the image a sentiment of "Happy Birthday" in white to the bottom of the card, a pink bow and ribbon, three pink card candi pieces and then used pink liquid pearls and added "pearls" down the center of the butterflies.

The challenges I am entering this into are:

In The Pink Challenge # 30 - Ribbons and Bows -14/11
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes - 6/11



That's it for me, hope you all have a great weekend.
