Birthday Anya and I create a bright Birthday Card



Hi there! I have another fun, bright card to share with you tonight! It's funny, when I'm not in the best of moods, I seem to relax and create cards that I'm happier with than if I am feeling good, and happy.... hmmm weird... Here's my card -
Today, while I was down the shops, I bought the Simply Cards (Issue 96) magazine, which came with some bright, fun patterned papers. I layered some onto a white card base, and wrapped some beautiful double banded Grosgrain ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel and tied a bow , I then tied a bow in some red twine, from The Twinery (via the Stamp Spot) and stamped my sentiment from Up, Up & Away (SU!) The main image panel is a Spellbinders Die sponged all over with blue ink and a scallop circle, to create clouds, this little girl is Birthday Anya, and she was coloured using my Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pen (duh!) I have added two punched strips of blue patterned paper and some Stickles Glitter into the scallops punched out... I have done a bunch of doodling right around the edges of the patterned paper. (not very neatly... hehe)
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the TGF Farm Fresh Friday Spy Day, and also their Monday Funday Anything Goes Challenge, and last but not least is another entry into the Ribbon Carousel Twine Challenge.
 
Only a few more days to get your name into the draw for my Blog Candy! And, Don't forget to head over to the almost here new sketch challenge blog - Feeling Sketchy!
