Not Just a Year Older, but a Year Better

Hi guys

Today I've got a card to share with you which I made for my Brother's fiancee's birthday.  And I've managed to combine a few challenges too.

Here it is...

I die cut two tags, one from white cardstock and one from green polka dot cardstock.  I layered these at an angle and adhered them to my card base.  Next I stamped the daisy and bow images and die cut these with their co-ordinating dies.  These are from a Clearly Besotted set that's been on my wishlist for ages and I finally treated myself a couple of days ago.  I coloured the daisies with ProMarkers and added some Wink of Stella to the flower centres.  I adhered these images at an angle over the tag and finished with the sentiment in black, also from the same set, and a Doodlebug Sprinkle over the hole of the tag.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Celebrating You
  • Ink: Memento - London Fog, Dandelion; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Scalloped Tag Die, Celebrating You
  • Cardstock: Anna Marie Designs - white; Pebbles - Basics Cardmaking Pad 2 (green polka dot)
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Accents: Doodlebug Sprinkles - Bumblebee; Wink of Stella - Clear

Challenge entries:

Less is More - Week 214 - Yellow and Green
A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge #139 - Clean and Simple
Brown Sugar - Challenge #136 - Spring
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #363 - Die Cuts & Punches
Crazy 4 Challenges - Challenge #276 - Put a Bow On

That's all for the moment.  I should be back to making cards on a more regular basis now as I've claimed back my crafting table!  Literally everything in the flat has been covered in a fine dust from the kitchen renovation but I'm gradually working my way around, it's probably having the best Spring clean it's ever had! haha

Thanks for being patient with me over the last couple of months, and thank you as always for popping by and for leaving such encouraging comments.
