Pig out!

The Colour Crazy Challenge are being sponsored this time by Imagine That Digi Stamps. 
I used the very cute image called "a little behind."
It comes in a set of super-cute images and sentiments -
although for this card, I made my own sentiment as I was giving this to a friend
who I had also bought a little bag of edible treats for. 

 I definitely wanted the pink / brown colour combo for this card,
so found some matching papers in my stash. 
I inked and dry embossed the edges of each piece, added some faux-stitching
and some punched flowers and butterflies and some diecut swirls and leaves.

This card was very well received! :) 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Through the craft room door -  atg - 4 May  
Seize the birthday - atg - 12 May
I love promarkers - atg girly - 11 May

Card for a young girl.

My neighbours little girl turned 8 last week
and I made her this card.
Pink, flowers, birds, bunting...

 The frame was diecut on my bigshot, 
along with the "happy birthday" her name and age and the little birds.
I cut little triangles for the bunting and popped the frame and sentiment 
onto 3d foam. 
The butterflies were punched.
I fussy cut one of the flowers from the design to pop in the top left-hand corner,

We have a fabulous new sponsor for our challenge

I got this gorgeous image called: Sketchy Rose Cups.

I love using this image and wanted to give it a very delicate look.
So, I used a pink petticoat backing paper (no longer trading)
and some pastel coloured promarkers, to colour the image.
I inked all edges in a dusky pink inkpad and dry embossed around the edge of the image. 
Die-cut corners and a few punched butterflies finished this card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

This month at Pattie's Creations
it's the favourite "anything goes" challenge.

I chose "fondant cake" and was spoilt for choice, because it comes with 2 images!
This is one of them...

I picked some pastel coloured promarkers to colour the cake
 and added a little pattern to each layer - using white sakura pen and 3D pearl effects.
I die-cut the frame and handcut a few little bunting triangles,
which I patterned with my sakura pens. 
As I often do, I finished with a dry embossed line around the edge of the card.

I am sending this card to my friend, for her birthday (she is a cake baker!)
(The little "happy birthday" scroll is not park of the image -
I stamped it from one of my sets and and fussy cut around the scroll. )
