Happy Birthday To Ya

This is for the Sarah Hurley Challenge 26.

The backing paper is from a joanna sheen fashion through the ages A5 pack, the stamp is a Michelle Marsden one, I used my new xyron design runner for part of the sentiment and a free from a mag stamp set for the happy birthday.

I wanted to do a card around a party frock theme, but with a choice of frocks. I used promarkers for the mannequin and distress inks on the matt, and the label. All was finished off with a girlie pink bow.
Hope you all like it.

Blog Challenge

Some crafty creations for some blog challenges. 

Wish for a friend 1 : the inspiration was the sentiment rub on. I put the velvet paper in the centre of a red card blank, and positioned the rub on half top half bottom to flow along the card.

Wish for a friend 2: the sentiment was the inspiration for this one and I felt it was pretty enough to stand alone, I just mounted it onto a foiled card blank and let it speak for itself. Sentiment panel from KanBan and card blank from Hunky Dory.

New Beginnings 1: the quote says it all, this is foiled already onto the card blank, I added a hand made paper square in a diamond shape and added co-ordinating hand made paper butterfly.

New Beginnings 2: the inspiration for this was emigrating, a number of friends over the years have emigrated all over the world, I wouls want to emigrate in 30's luxury style on a liner (1st class of course) and that's what I aimed for. Topper and border from KanBan and backing paper is cut down from a 12X12 nautical themed sheet.

This was put together to celebrate what is "iconically" British! Red phone boxes (where did they go?) Royal family, and of course tea! A corner of hand made red and blue papers were mounted onto a white card blank, an oval aperture from a hunkydory card and stickers from a creative imaginations 12X12 sheet were used for the Brit Icons.

I started by using graphic 45 papers and chose the elements I wanted to use. I then spritzed with tattered angels juniper, placed a butterfly stencil (to represent the catterpillar/butterfly in the book) and over spritzed in cosmic shimmer golden mint.

I then layered on the elements from graphic 45 papers and some stickers to represent the hare's pocket watch and the drink me potion. Finished off with gothic lettering for Alice.
