The current challenge over on the CD Sunday blog is Stepping Out, when I saw this challenge my first thoughts were to use the Fabulous Shoes CD. But after a bit of thought and searching I found this image which also fits the theme. The CD is Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter Nursary Rhymes, it also fits nicely with the fact I need to make a Birthday card for a 4 year old girl too. I used an 8x8 white card blank to start with, printed the papers that I need from the CD. I did have a little trouble with the bottom sheet of backing paper ( the colour was not quite right) but after taking it into MCS I soon changed it to match. I mounted the backing papers onto silver mirri card and added lace to the second layer down one edge and some corners from an All Occasions die. The topper has been decoupaged using glue gel before being stuck on with foam pads. The name and age were added after I cut them out using the new die set and die cutting machine from Spellbinders - The Sapphire. It's so handy as it takes up hardly any space and is ready when I want to cut out something small, like the letters or corners. Finally I added some flowers cut from a Crealies die, I have lots of these sorts of flowers ready to use on cards. I'm even managing to post this card over a week before the challenge ends, the last two have been by the skin of my teeth.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
