Birthday Card

Good afternoon everyone - another dull dreary day in Devon!!! One of my little dragons is ill and the other one is making enough noise for both of them!!!
I had an important Birthday Card to make and felt the Penny Black image I won in a candy was perfect - can't find it anywhere though - sorry.

They have been coloured using my trusty watercolour crayons, and the image has been mounted on some lovely pink glitter card. I have used the sketch at Penny Black Saturday which has been drawn by Beth and I love it, lots of measuring involved!!

The papers I have used are from the Create and Craft Triple Treasures Cd Volume 2. The other papers are pearlised paper which has been embossed using my early Christmas Present. Yes, you guessed it I now have a cuttlebug - Yeh finally. Two of the folders I bought are the Divine Swirls and the Swiss Dots which have been used to death as I eagerly try them out on every bit of paper and card I have!!!! Well I have been waiting a while and one must have a play with ones new toys!!!! the background card is from Core'dinations - Whitewash pack, sanded a bit to let the colour through.


The flower is a mixture of punched flowers and one from my Just Pots Funky Flowers jar topped with one of Anitas gems. Doesn't this picture show off the Swiss dots embossing well!!!

The other challenges I am entering this card in are :-

Paper Cutz Challenge Anything Goes,

Pile It On - Flowers and flourishes,

Crazy 4 Challenges - Punch Happy,

MyGrafico - P.I.E recipe (Papers and Pink, Ink on the stamps and Embossing) and

Frosted Designs - Same shape, different size (I have two sizes of square).

I hope you like it and don't forget to let me know. Don't forget you have until tomorrow to enter my candy which you will find here.

Hi Ali, that CB should have been wrapped up and put under the tree, naughty girl! There will be no stopping you now, everything will be embossed to within an inch of it's life!

You have put it to good use for this one.

Did you emboss the poorly dragon? I was poorly in my bed all day last week and only got one drink of water and a slice of toast. My DW was close to being embossed, I can tell you.
