Chocolate and strawberry birthday
I've made a birthday card using Vicki's pretty sketch from this week's challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend, using one of my favourite colour combinations, pink and brown, which is Whiff of Joy's challenge this week. I'm also entering it into a third challenge, a new one called Crafty Cardmakers; their first challenge is called Blossoms.
The card uses a Whiff of Joy stamp, Melinda blowing kisses, an old favourite of mine, I've coloured her with Copics, pink Stickles and Glossy Accents (lots on her wings). The image is edged with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Melinda is matted on to gold mirri card then onto card sprayed with pink Glimmer Mist. The two brown patterned papers are Basic Grey and the background pink is from a Bearly Mine Designs cd called Extreme Inserts. It's the first time I've used any of them, I've been drooling over them but not printing them out. I've also used them inside the card, which I've left plain apart from the papers. Lovely, aren't they?
The dark brown card behind the circle has been dotted with white, the flowers are Prima with pink foliage that was cut with a Halloween punch and trimmed, the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
