My favourite occasion

Hello everyone

Can you believe the weather. It's amazing and it is lasting which is even more amazing. I do hope it continues into the school summer holidays and my family's visit to Suffolk. For the past couple of years our summer holidays have been a wash out. Please let it last.

Well onto today's card. Over at the as you like it challenge site the challenge is your favourite occasion. Mine is birthdays. I love the fact that it is your special day with presents, lots of cards and a glass of bubbly. I still look forward to mine with childish delight and I'm afraid I left my childhood behind a long time ago.

Here is my card - 

The image is from the Strawberry kisses range by Crafter's companion and is called Birthday kitten. I have coloured the image with my Spectrum noirs as follows -

  • wrapper - TB1, TB2 and TB3
  • icing - PP1 and PP2
  • cake - EB1 and EB2
  • candle - PP1, PP4, GB1 and OR1
  • bow - PP1, PP2 and PP4
  • kitten - PP1, PP2 and BGR1
  • shadow - BGR1, BGR2 and IB1
I have cut the image out with a rectangle nestie and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. I have then embossed a piece of blue Centura pearl using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the matted the image onto it. I made the backing paper using two of the smaller stamps that came in the stamp set and coloured it with Spectrum noirs to match the coloured image. I added a LaLa lande flag banner and stamp PARTY onto it. (Stamps from Clarity Stamps) To finished I added some glitter to the main image and to the backing paper.

I would like to enter this card into

Thank you for stopping by.
