Happy Belated World Cardmaking Day!
World Card Making Day was yesterday; having looked around a few blogs it looks like everyone had lots of fun, there were all kinds of blog hops and challenges to join in with. However I didn't get to do any cardmaking at all, I was teaching quilting all day, to a keen bunch who rather over-ran the finish time and then went straight to an Oktoberfest party at my friend's house. We were back before WCM Day finished at midnight but I certainly wasn't fit to be unleashed on either the craft room or blog hopping :).
So here is my belated card to celebrate the day. It's using Donalda's sketch from Splitcoast Stamper's challenge, sponsored by Sugar Nellie, with chances to win FIVE goodie bags.
I'm also celebrating with the Simon Says Challenge Blog, which is asking for "girlie" cards to be made and sent, either to Erin's neighbour Paige (read about Paige here) or to Post Pals. I posted a card to Paige a couple of weeks back, but it's a while since I've sent to Alice, my Post Pal, so this card's for Alice.
Goodness there are a lot of layers on this sketch! The image is the lovely Diane Duda "It's a girl thing" fundraiser stamp, Pure of Heart, available from Funky Kits, stamped onto Crate Paper and coloured with Copics; I've paper pieced her dress. The wings are coloured with Copics, I see they look identical to the papers in the photo! Sentiment is from Elusive Images and I've added a little faux stitching around the layer with the sentiment. All papers are by Crate Paper, bought from the Stamp Attic. Instead of flowers, I've used hearts cut from the same papers and I've used Glamour Dust on the wings and the hearts. Purple brads from stash. Alice likes pinks and purples so I think she'll like this one...
