A double birthday

It's my birthday today  - and also my sisters!
So I made her this card....


I used these colours as they are her favourites.
I wanted to make a different card, and did not use an image this time.
I sentiment was free...
I think it was from desert divas.
The grey and white hearts border is a washi tape
which I picked up in Canada last year on holiday,
The flowers are from docrarfts, I just layered a few together
and glossy-accented pearls in the centres.
The banner was cut using a spellbinders edging die.
I printed out the butterflies and fussy cut them before
popping the wings onto foam pads.
The swirls are (again) from the little xcut holly leaf set I got at christmas,
at Hobbycraft.

Mermaid.

It's March - and the theme for this weeks challenge at 
use some green.


From Spellbinding Stamps, I got the lovely -  Chrissy mermaid.
I coloured her with my promarkers and spectrum noir pens. I added 
wink of stella to her scales and hair too.. although you cant see the glittery effect
on the photo I took.
The sentiment was a freebie from desert divas.
The embossinf folder is one I bought last year, in Hobby Lobby, USA
and the die to cut the little swirls, came in a little pack with a few holly leaves and berries,
 from Hobbycraft.
(It's a cute little xcut die - only £2 i think!)

Simple butterfly

I got a gorgeous image for this months "anything with wings"
challenge at Patties Creations this month...
I used "butterfly 1" for this card.


Because I wanted the butterfly to stand out, I 
picked quite a subtle backing paper.
I think this paper came free with a Docrafts mag, a while back!

The stamped sentiment was a stamp I bought on a car boot sale, a fortnight ago -
I paid 50p for about 6 stamps and an embossing folder (which I haven't used yet).
Bargain!
I coloured the butterfly with my promarkers and spectrum noirs and 
added some extra flecks of white with my sakura gel pen. 
The butterfly was also fussy-cut and raised on 3d pads.
Final finishing touches included inking the edges of the paper and the banner
and embossing a clean line around the paper.
