Today I am participating in a challenge from Just Christmas and Birthday Cards. It's a sketch (which I always appreciate), and you can do both a Christmas and birthday card or just one or the other. I am submitting a birthday card - which I did for my Aunt Barbara's birthday later this week.
The card base is pink CS and all of the DP is from the Laundry Line collection by My Mind's Eye. I adhered a block of Lucky Run Paper to the left-hand side and a block of Party Flowers Paper on the right-hand side. The little flowers in the upper and lower corners were punched from pink CS and adhered with pop dots. Each flower has Sakura Stardust ink in its center. I adhered a strip of pink CS down the center with a piece of ribbon and a bow(Michael's) on top of it.
The image and sentiment are from the Birthday Chicken stamp set by 2RedBananas.com, and it's stamped on watercolor paper with Jet Black StazOn ink and colored with Derwent watercolor pencils. There are also some Sakura Stardust accents on the hat and cake. I matted it on pink CS and used pop dots to adhere it to the card.
This was a fun challenge and I really liked Just Christmas and Birthday Card's sketch. I'll have to check them out next Monday, too.
