Happy 1st Birthday Get Creative

Good morning.  We start another challenge at Get Creative Challenges and we are celebrating our 1st Birthday  - whoopee.  I have to admit I have thoroughly enjoyed my first 12 months on the design team.  It has been such a pleasure to work with digi stamps from many fantastic and generous sponsors.  It has also been an enormous pleasure seeing your creations every challenge.  They have been brilliant.

Challenge 27 theme is Birthday

Our sponsors are: -


Angies Cards & Digis

I used a digi stamp from Polka Doodles called Dollie Daydream - Birthday Digi Stamp.

After printing out Dollie my BSC fussy cut her out and I coloured her in using copic marker pens.

I have used an 8x8 base card.  Matted and layered some sea green card followed by some patterned paper printed from serif craft artist digi kit.

I then cut another piece of sea green card and die cut an aperture using a spellbinders die, followed by a piece of white card slightly smaller and again die cut an aperture with the same spellbinders die.  I embossed it using an 8x8 embossing folder from embossilicious (crafters companion).

My flower is a stamp from Chloes Creative Cards. This comes in three sizes and I stamped 2 large, 2 medium and 2 small on parchment using a teal cosmic shimmer embossing folder from Phil Martin's range.  A white pearl in the centre finished off my flower, which sits on two swirls die cut from a die which was a freebie on a tattered lace magazine.
