.... it's week two of CR84FN45 - with our bright, vibrant colours of medium blue, orange and yellow. I've really enjoyed seeing the lovely creations in the gallery - and you still have a week to play.
This week I've made a birthday card for my niece, Anne (yesterday I showed you the one that Mum will be sending). My inspiration for the card is the photo with the marigold strings - I like this effect. On the card I stamped the sentiment in orange and yellow - forming strings of sentiments. In my stash I found this sweet bird image, and I liked the ornate border. It reminded me of the gorgeous designs and gems from India. To make the topper, I stamped the image three times. I cut out the bottom layer with a small circle nestie, added a touch of yellow to the edge of the image and coloured the blue part of the border. In the next image I coloured the triangle and dot and the thin blue line - then I carefully cut the image out. I used a punch to cut out the inner circle containing the bird, which I coloured with Promarkers and used shimmer chalk on the leaves. I attached the topper to a pretty mat made from holographic blue card. Finally, I added some bling.
