I have two cards to share with you today - these are for my twin niece & nephew who will be 11 tomorrow. I can't believe that they have got to this age so quickly! I honestly don't know what my sister is thinking of in allowing them to do this......I was privileged enough to be there when they were born and I'm telling you that there is no way that 11 years have passed since then!!!
Anyway, on to the cards. This first one is for my nephew (but then you probably didn't need to to tell you that! lol!) I've used Victory Kid by Kenny K. I digitally paper pieced his cap and Jeans using a denim backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD1 then used the dodge tool to create some faded areas. I coloured the rest of the image as normal. The bps are mainly from a new scrapbooking kit that will be hitting Crafty Ann's in the next couple of days, apart from the silver which is already there and part of a pack of silver papers. The greeting was computer generated and the buttons have been lying sadly neglected in my stash for ages.
I'm entering this one into these challenges:
- Card Makin' Mamas - Buttons
- Kenny K's Krafting Girls - One for the boys
- The Paper Shelter - Paper Piecing
See further down for the other challenges it's for.
For my niece's card I've used a lovely image from the Paper Shelter called The Lovely Ballerina. My niece is a dancer so this one was perfect for her. The two main bps are from the crinkle collection and the one on the mat behind her is from the silver collection, both from Crafty Ann's. The doily is one I've created. 3 pearls from my stash are the finishing touch here.
Challenges I'm entering both cards into are:
- Gingerloft - Happy Birthday
- Allsorts - 3 in a row
- Sunday Sketch & Stamp - great sketch
- The Sisterhood of Crafters - Let's celebrate, Birthdays
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you all have the same beautiful weather we have here.
