Hero Arts May Contest


This is the first card I get to make for this months' contest over at Hero Arts.  It's all about Birthdays, a colour challenge or an interactive card, or all three, as I did with my card.

I covered a notecard with some pretty paper from Lawn Fawn.  The oval die cut was stamped and clear embossed with the Dot Flower Pattern background stamp and inked with some Mustard Seed.  Here is the funny part: I wanted the edge to be a light blue, so I used some Broken China....of course....yellow and blue make GREEN!  But I decided to leave it like that as it made a really pretty shade of geen.

The blue strip on top is stamped with the Flower Wall Paper background stamp using Hero Arts Soft Pool ink.  I rounded the corners, stamped a sentiment and added some pearls and a little bow.

And this is the inside of the card.  After colouring that little Girl With Flowers using Copic markers, I adhered her to the card using a home made "wobbler" thanks to Susan's explanations on how to make it which you can find on Flickr HERE.  I have to say it was quite fun and I may have to experiment a bit more with some different designs!

Well, it's time to go and wake up the princess and start the morning routine!  My dog goes for all her pre-requisite blood work today before she leaves to go to South Africa a few days before us. Then Lisa and I are meeting up with Sue Lelli, a DT from CR84FN, for some lunch and girl talk today.

Have a really beautiful day!

This card is a huge piece of eye-candy, Brenda. I love the simple front, which has so much punch with the graphic design and great colors. Then - briiiing - the inside is a hoppin' fun and perfectly colored wiggling girlie! I know most girls that age do not stand still, either! A kick of a card.

Maybe the color of the edge turned out a bit different with the distress ink but it looks great! And your "pop-up" girl is a cutie!
