Yet another Birthday!


Another week brings another birthday! A niece celebrated her 17th birthday earlier this week and here is the card I made for her:

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Base Card - Centura Pearl 300gsm card in Ivory (Crafter's Companion) cut and folded to a 12cm square card.
  • Backing Paper and Sentiment are both by Create With TLC and were goodies the February Club. I can see this sentiment will be getting quite a bit of use and it looks just as good going vertically like this as it does horizontally!
  • My gorgeous image is called Saffron and she is Little Miss Muffet image - although I'm not sure she's available in the store, but there are plenty more delightful images there to tempt you! Barbara was offering her as a Follower's Freebie in January. 
  • I brought this cutie to life (although I'm not sure I've got the sheen on her hair quite right!) with my Spectrum Noir Pens in the following colours (original numbering system):
    • Hat & Scarf - 68, 65
    • Hair - 104, 100, 92
    • Skin - 132, 133
    • Coat - 96, 91 
    • Muffler - 171
    • Boots - 91, 98
    • Outline - CG1
  • I completed my design by adding 3 pieces of Bling to highlight Saffron's hat and also put them under the sentiment.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Helen x
