A family birthday card
It was my dear sister-in-law's birthday at the end of July, so this is the card I made for her. I didn't dare post it before as she has a link to my blog, so I was scared she'd see it before the day.
She's quite fond of 'cute' and I hadn't had a chance to use this sweet little soul before, so this seemed like a good opportunity.
He's actually decoupaged onto a digital scalloped oval, but the scan makes it look like he's been set into an aperture card, how sweet!
I did try to find a challenge that this card would fit, but as usual, I failed miserably.
I'm just editing this to say 'thank you' to Wendy who let me know that as this had previously been 'neglected' stash it fitted the My Time to Craft challenge this week
* Backing papers - K & Co
* Image - Charmed Cards & Crafts 'Fairy Doodles'
* Scalloped mats - Daisie Company download 'Meadow Kit'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* 'Sister' sticker - K & Co
* Everything else from my stash
I made sure that I used plenty of Stickles, both on the backing paper and the image and I finished off the flowers with a diamante brad. Well, a girl can just never have too much sparkle!
