Birthday Wishes for You

Well it's Wednesday afternoon again and that means it's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and our theme this fortnight is 'USE FLOWERS'.

We have three great sponsors for this challenge:

I have decided to use the beautiful 'Nevaeh' image from Saturated Canary  I rarely use Saturated Canary images because I feel I cannot do justice to the gorgeous hair - my colouring skills need much more practice - I feel a New Years Resolution forming here!

I have followed the sketch from the Saturated Canary Challenge, coloured her with ProMarkers and my papers are one of the Nitwit Collections, I had printed them out ages ago and found them when sorting out my Craft Room (which is still ongoing).  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front using the same layout and papers but I'm afraid there is no photograph today as I just couldn't get one that was good enough to show - for some reason the colours were not coming out true.
Card Recipe:

Image:  Saturated Canary - Nevaeh
Papers:  Nitwit Collections
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Floral Oval, Whimsy Stamps - corner die,  Marianne Creatables - flourish die, X-Cut - border punch (inside card)
Embellishments:  ribbon, lace, flowers and pearl heart from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

Crafts and Me Challenge 112 - Ribbon or Trim

Hi Pauline, such a pretty card - love the colours - and a gorgeous image. I know just what you mean about SC images, they are wonderful but colouring them can be sooo difficult! You've done a lovely job here though.

Thanks for joining in with us this week at Sweet Stampin.
