We are celebrating with a special 'Birthday Challenge' and giving away an extraordinary amount of prizes worth over £200!! The whole design team have been involved and were challenged to make a birthday card using three of something - here's what I made ...
I chose a DL sized cardblank for a change which is layered with brown pearlised cardstock and pretty papers from the fabulous range of Polkadoodles CDs (the flowered one is from the 'Sugar Birdies CD' and the striped one is from the 'Candy Doodles CD') and as you can see they compliment each other perfectly, even though they are from different CDs.
I love this yummy cupcake stamp - perfect for celebrating a birthday. I stamped it once on card and coloured with Promarkers, then twice more onto shrink plastic and coloured with watercolour pencils before I shrunk them - so cute. These are mounted onto a pink nestie circle, which has faux stitching around the edge and then a brown lacey circle cut from matching brown cardstock.
The sentiment is printed from the 'Candy Doodles CD', cut using a nestie circle which also has faux stitching and mounted onto a brown lacey circle to match the main image.
Added embellishments include a pink border cut using the nestabilities Parisian border die, together with some lush pink and brown checked ribbon (one of my favourite colour schemes) and a few pink adhesive gems to finish off.
All there is left to say is a huge 'Well Done' to the very talented and generous Nikky Hall and I hope I am still around to help celebrate the next three!
Get yourselves over to the blog quick and snaffle yourself some fab prizes.
