A big Birthday

Good afternoon crafty friends and I hope that this post finds you well.

I'm a few days late posting this, but there's been a new challenge launched this week at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps and, as usual, it's Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up Image.

Now, my youngest bambino turned 18 today, and I have 2 questions:
  1. How did that happen, because somewhere inside there is a 25 year old trying to escape
  2. Can I actually stop "adulting" now that both my bambinos are, ahem, responsible adults themselves 😂
Here's my card, which I'm very proud to say that Wendy designed after one of my suggestions for a new image - thanks Wendy, it's perfect!

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Card Base - is a pre-made 15cm square card base in white
  • Design Papers - come from an amazing scrapbooking bundle called The Best is Yet to Come by Violet Irisovna at Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking. I have used this gorgeous Confetti - Gold paper with a banner (even though I completely misjudged the sizing under my "photo frame") in Watercolour Paper Teal 2.
  • Image - is the beautiful Key to the Door by Wendy at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps. I have brought the key and charms to life using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers following the instructions for gold in the September 2019 Markers class at Kit and Clowder.
  • Mock Photo Frame - is made from black cardstock from my stash.
  • Sentiment & 18 - were die cut from Watercolour Paper Teal 2, and once stuck on my project were treated to a slick of Clear Sparkle Pen to make them a bit glitzy!
  • Enamel Dots - are from My Mind's Eye and were a gift in a card swap … and also just perfect for this project!
I hope that I have inspired you to come over to All Dressed Up Digital Stamps and play along in our Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up Image challenge. But if you are in need of more inspiration, please head over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations by the other Dressy Girls! This challenge ends on the evening of 14th November, UK time.

The Facebook Dressy Girls have their own challenge over on the Facebook Page and their current challenge is Add Flowers, with an All Dressed Up Image. This challenge ends on 31st October.

Don't forget, that there are some freebies on the blog if you don't have any ADU images … but please be respectful and follow Wendy's simple rules for using them to make sure that they're there for all fellow crafters to use. Thank you 😀 

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
