Elzybells Challenge meets Cute Card Thursday

Thursday, 30 April 2009
I know, I've been MIA again! I've got lots of birthday's in the next few days so have been busy making cards. I've had 7 to make for birthday's covering 1st May - 5th May!! I've not finished them all, but the images are coloured ready for me to decided what I'm going to do with them.

The card below is for a guy who works in my team. As we work for Natural England and deal with the environment, I thought the "Little Birdie" set from Elzybells was the perfect choice. I also thought that I would take part in this fortnights Elzybells Challenge which is a fabulous sketch by Rachel
Stamps: Little Birdies set - Elzybells
Ink: Memento Ink, copics
CS: Core'dinations
Tools: nesties
Embellishments: papermania gem stones, silver border peel-offs

The gems on the sentiment are there to hide a couple of small marks that appeared when I separately stamped the two segments of the sentiment, but I don't think they look too bad! Inside the card has been stamped with "...it's your birthday, Happy Birthday to Ewe".

I'm hoping that this will also be considered for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge which is to use something shiny. Fingers crossed my gems and border peel-offs fit the bill!

I promise I have more cards to post over the next few days. I thought I would space them out, rather than post them all on one day. Plus it would give you all a reason to keep popping back to see what I've been up to!

Hope you are having a good evening. Thank you for stopping by and any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

    Gorgeous card Sarah.
    I found that a black marvey pen is great for inking up part of a sentiment as with the pointed tip it's easier to avoid the parts you don't want to ink up.

    Hi, What a lovely card. I really like the stamp set and must try and get it as I have been asked to make an 80th Birthday card for a lady who loves sheep so that would be perfect.
