This week over at the ABC challenge blog we have reached the last letter of the alphabet and would like you to make a Zig Zag card. We are being sponsored by the wonderful Lacey and her store. The prize is a $20 voucher to spend in the store.
I'm now onto another project and that is to make birthday cards for niece who will be, yes you've guessed it, 16 !
The main image is another from Mo Manning's fabulous collection. My niece will be flying off to the South of France the day after her birthday so I thought this image was rather apt. I've shaded the image with ProMarkers and cut her out with Labels 6 Nestabilities and then used Mustard Seed DI and Broken China DI around the edge. For the background of the card I've used a stamp from the Baroque Motifs Stampin' Up set and I've embossed it with white EP. I made sure to line all 3 background panels up and then stamped across them so that the pattern would follow through the card. I then rubbed Broken China DI over the top.
The horizontal pieces are Pink Petticoat Fairy Dots in Turquoise and the border punch is by Fiskars. The flowers are cut using a die from the Olivia Alphabet set then I've dotted tiny pearls around the swirls. This card was quite simple to do in the end, and I'm really pleased with it !
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges :
