I made this card for a 17 year old girly-girl. I needed something I could whip up quickly, but looked like I spent time putting together. I had to cheat... and Polkadoodles made cheating so much fun! Here's my card:
|I'm using a pre-coloured Frederika Debutante from the Frederika Mini CD Collection. The background paper is also from this CD.|
|I'm sticking to a simple colour combo with plenty of layering with Spellbinders Classic Oval dies. To jazz up my card, I made flowers out of left-over paper from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD, using Spellbinders Rose Creation dies.|
|Here's a close-up of the flowers. I inked the petals with TH's Spun Sugar and stuck a bling in the centre of each bloom. For some extra shine I applied some Stickles.|
|To create a frame for Frederika I used Spellbinders Floral Oval and dotted it with some more bling. The greeting is from Frederika Mini CD Collection.|
|Here's the inside... plain and simple.|
I'm also playing along with Aud Sentiments Challenge #79 "Happy Birthday To Us"; C.R.A.F.T #204 "... Bling It Up ..."; Crafting For All Seasons #50 "No Stamps Allowed"; Crafty Creations #219 #Pink + One"; Bearlymine Challenges #83 "Digi Days"; The Sisterhood of Crafters "Free For All" and Creative Card Crew #34 "Handmade Flowers".
Now it your turn. Make a birthday card and bling it up...let it shine. Then, link it up to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog. There are cool prizes to be won so hy not give it a whirl. Hope to see you at the linky party.
Thanks for stopping and I'll see you tomorrow with another card. Ta-ta for now!
