CACB Challenge #35
The new challenge at CACB has rolled around again and this time we're asking you for a birthday card. There's lots of Christmas Challenges helping us to get well prepared so we thought that it might be a good idea to add one to the birthday box. For my card, I've used the free papers that were on the challenge blog for you to collect all last week (hope you managed to get yours) and let them dictate the colour scheme. I've used Venetian mask 3 and coloured it with promarkers and added some turquoise glitter that I've had for years and some gold stickles. The glitter is slightly coarser than I normally use but the colour was perfect and it really sparkles in real life. I've distressed the edges of the two papers with a cutting tool that I bought years ago for cutting threads while I was cross stitching and works perfectly for this. I've embellished the corners with a clear stamp from a set that I've had for so long that I can't remember where I got it from or who made it - nor can I remember the last time I used it. I've embellished with white satin ribbon and a square buckle from the embellishments sheet which was coloured with promarker and stickles. The sentiment and image were cut out with nesties labels 4 and finished off with some little pearls coloured with the promarker again to match.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
