The challenge over at Pollycraft this week (#80) is SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS, and it just so happens that a friend of mine became a Grandma today, and gave me the perfect opportunity to make a card and enter the challenge at the same time!
Here's my card:
I followed this week's Sketch Saturday sketch (week 142), so am also entering that challenge too!
The image is a freebie called 'baby Roger' by Helen Laurence and can be found on her 'Ellephantastic blog' here. I coloured him with Promarkers and cut him with my lacey circle nesties. He is mounted onto pink glittercard, with tiny pink gems.
There is a pink gingham bp, glittercard, grosgrain and organza ribbon, layered according to the sketch, and the sentiments are computer generated using Cool Dots font, one cut using a nestie, the other on the guillotine. As you can see, little Heidi arrived today, weighing 5lbs 15ozs.
I also added some flower buttons, which I filled with Stickles in an upturned Card Candy dot!
Finally I added some flat-backed pearls, a die-cut photo corner and inked the edges to finish.
I would also like to enter the following challenges:
- Craft Your Passion #45 - Use Pink.
- Die Cut Dreams #83 - It's a Girl!
- Lexi's Creations #33 - Bears.
- OSAAT - Make it Pretty.
- Crafty Emmas #23 - Cute & Cuddly.
- I Love Promarkers #52 - Birthday...(mine is for a 'Birth' day!)
Thanks for looking!
