Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge #40 - A Winter Birthday
Happy Sunday morning to you dear Reader, I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend and not getting too tired or stressed with your Christmas preparations. Don't you think that Christmas has started early this year? Maybe it's just that I'm not getting myself organised efficiently enough, but I still have lots of cards to get made and presents to buy, there are also quite a few Autumn and Winter birthdays amongst my family and friends.
This week's challenge on Just Cute Bears and Friends is to create a Winter birthday card, so this was perfectly timed for me to create my DT card for my daughter's birthday next month.
I thought I'd use some crisp icy colours for this card as it is to be a Winter birthday card and decided to use this adorable 'Thomas and Champagne' stamp from Lili of the Valley, isn't he just the cutest little chap? I coloured the image with Copics and added Glossy Accents to the glasses of champers and Thomas' cute pink nose. The fancy corners were diecut from aqua card using a Marianne die set, the image was cut with a nestabilities circle die and added over a layer cut from more of the aqua card using a slightly larger scalloped circle nestie. The flowers were punched out with two sizes of Nellie's Choice punch & emboss sets and pale blue gems added to the centres. The sentiment is from the newly released set from Lili of the Valley and I added blue Stickles around the edge of the circular sentiment layer and the image layer.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's card and that you will play along with us and submit an entry for the JCB&F Challenge #40 - just follow the link to the challenge blog and upload your entry. Myself and the rest of the DT love to visit your blogs to see your crafty creations and leave you a comment.
That's all from me today, so 'til I see you next time - Happy Crafting!
