Here is the card I "whipped up" for this weeks Polka Doodles challenge ....
Papers: Candy Doodles Collectors Edition
Cupcake and sentiment printed on to Safmat (from the same CD)
Marianne Design dies: Frame and butterfly
Hearts: K and Co
Flower and button from stash
I didn't want to go all "guns blazing" announcing the significant birthday, (not saying that this is Ruth's "0" birthday) but instead have created lickle dots with a number on! All papers are from the new Candy Doodles Collectors Edition as they are such a fab selection of papers and so versatile. The embossed panel at the back is a Marianne Design "Designables die which both cuts and embosses.
I printed the sentiment on to Safmat and then placed this on to a piece of the bunting paper, which in turn was mounted on to a Marianne Design frame die cut. The cupcake was also printed on to Safmat and then onto a piece of stiff card, dotted with little icing dots.
I was also very brave and cut the Marianne Design butterfly from felt . . . it looks fab but was a little delicate. I have finished the butterfly off with some hearts and a flower.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafting when we can - things with wings
Pan Pastel - sweet treats
One Stop Craft - pastel and die cuts
Southern Girls Challenge - "you got something you wanna say?"
Well I didn't get far blogging this evening as I decided to re-organise my craft "bits and bobs" .... let's just say, this will be an on going project!
