Create-d with TLC


This is my latest creation and it has been made with TLC: tender loving care as it is for my daughter's 10th birthday on Tuesday, and I also used a sentiment from the wonderfully generous Paulette at Create with TLC

My base card is a 6 inch square 220gsm embossed white card which I bought from an independent local craft shop. My image is of the world famous Hello Kitty  (© Sanrio Co. Ltd.). This picture is one I found by doing an internet search for Hello Kitty colouring sheets. My backing paper is from a set called Country Girls Birthday which I got from Card Making Downloads - I got the detailed edge on the paper by cutting it into the right sized rectangle and then used one of the embossing borders on my Ultimate Pro (Crafter's Companion) to shape the edge, which I then cut out. The ribbon is white organza with a satin edge on each side. I've tied this into a bow which is then mounted sideways on the card, and I tucked the ends inside. The pale blue gems came from a bag of assorted gems which I bought in a french supermarket whilst on holiday in the summer ... I knew they'd come in handy!

To bring this little cutie to life I have used my Spectrum Noir pens (also from Crafter's Companion) in the following shades:

Fur: 109, CG1
Nose: 37
Bow & Dress: 183, 72
Drink: 137, 8, 15, CG0.5
Grass: 163, 175, 42

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
  • Show Your Stuff Saturday at Create with TLC and, yes, I do know it's Sunday but this "Show 'n' Tell Blog Hop" is still running! :o) The sentiment was yesterday's freebie from Paulette, and I recoloured it in blue to tie in with the colours of the dress and set it into an oval of the same colour.
I've just now got to keep both the card and this post safely hidden until Tuesday morning when the birthday girl will receive her card!
