Smile - it's your birthday ....

.... Good morning - can you believe, it's 1st May!!  I must thank everyone for the really lovely comments you've been leaving recently - I am always so pleased to know that people do take the time to stop by and leave a message for me - thank you all.

Today I have a birthday card to share with you.  It's the card I made for Jonathan's birthday yesterday.  I saw the sketch at Seize the Sketch - STS#19 on Tuesday evening and decided it would be perfect for Jonathan's card.  Here's the card:

Stamps: There She Goes - Oh Snap; Clearly Besotted - Many Messages
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pool Party, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Pirouette; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Lil' Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Happy Snaps; Copics; Clear Embossing Powder


Last week, while browsing in Stampeddler, I came across this pack of design paper from Kaisercraft based on a photography/film theme; I had to get it as I knew it would be perfect for anything for Jonathan.  I turned the sketch on its side as it works better for the card.  I covered the card base with a sheet of design paper; I like the different colour film strips.  Next I used a die to cut the central panel and stamped overlapping images of different cameras and a film strip, I used pastel colours based on the backing paper.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  I stamped the big camera onto white card and used Copics to colour; it's a really funky camera!  I adhered the scallop border and then the birthday panel.  The camera was attached with dimensional tape.  I finished the front with a little date taken label - 30th April - Jonathan's birthday.  On the inside I used another sheet of design paper for the mat and added a tag from the paper stack, attaching it with a stamped tack!

Sorry about the quality of the photos!  I didn't get the card finished until late on Tuesday evening, and then yesterday morning was really wet, so I had to do the best I could with my craft light.  I'll try for a better photo tomorrow.

I don't think I'm going to get chance to make a card today or tomorrow - busy with party preparations and just spending time with Mum, but do drop by on Saturday for our new challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Waltzingmouse Fanatics!  Bye for now!
