Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #90 - Birthdays

Hi everyone,
It's time for another challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons.
 
For the next 2 weeks, we would love to see your
cards, with the theme of.......
 
Birthdays!
 
It will make a change for you, to make a birthday card,
instead of all those Christmas ones!
 
Our sponsor for this challenge is
 
Three digi stamps are the prize.
 
 
I chose to use this image, as I had bought the stamp at Ally Pally in September
and I had not had chance to even ink it up!!
 
It is from The House of Zandra and she is called
Fabulous Girls 3.
She is a big stamp, 6" so great to colour.
 
I used the usual, Distress Inks to colour her with and she was stamped onto 300gms watercolour card. Sadly a bit too textured for me but it had to be used.


The backing paper is from my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Paper pad.
It hurt me to cut into it
but I thought she was worth it!!
 

The piece of jute, was a candy win from the lovely Marianne.
 


Don't forget to pop over to our blog and you will see some stunning cards
from my lovely teamies.
Sure to inspire you, as they are amazing.
 
Get those cards onto the blog, to be in with a chance to win three, FREE Digis.
 
Good Luck to you all.
 
Hugs,
 
Carol S.xx
