Challenge Winning cards

Tuesday, May 28, 2013


I needed to make a birthday card for a young girl and not getting any inspiration from my digi images or decoupage sets, I resorted to an idea I haven't used in a while...

I've printed her name backwards on the back of the patterned paper, cut it out then matted the letters on pink paper and carefully cut around the patterned paper letters to make a border. The letters are attached to the base card using foam pad then I've added random flower stickers and gems. The butterfly is punched and I've added coloured paper that can be seen through the negative areas and amber coloured gems. The greeting is a peel-off coloured with a dark brown pro marker.

I've entered this into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Happy Birthday
Celebrate the Occasion - Use a butterfly
Songbird Challenge - All creatures great and small
