SENDING YOU BIG BUNCHES OF BIRTHDAY WISHES! CUTTLEBUG SPOT
I spoke too soon it's raining here in Wales today!! We've had a great day though I've just come back from a taking Connor and his friend's for a day's Go karting and Connor is chuffed with himself as he won a gold medal for fastest lap of the day!
Anyway this is my DT card for the Cuttlebug Spot this week. Nilda asked us to follow a sketch this week and my DT sister Aymee set the sketch.Thanks Aymee. Well let me tell you I have never followed a sketch before and so my card is a bit 'stilted'as I tried to follow the sketch far too closely lol! I will know next time that I can have a bit more freedom with a sketch!
For my card I used a gorgeous digital stamped image from Pollycraft Designs from the Twiddly Wings 2 collection. I was lucky enough to be one of the blogcandy winners of this collection last week! The images are just the cutest and Pollycrafts also give away a freebie every Friday so it's well worth a visit.
The card is 8x8" and the backing paper is a Pink Petticoat download Small Swirls printed in Blossom. The embossing is one of my favourite CB folder Swiss Dots. The image is called Twiddly Wings Bunches(because of her bunch of flowers and the bunches in her hair) so that gave me the idea for the sentiment which is computer generated. She is coloured with promarkers and I used Diamond dust on her wings. I used my fiskars threading water border punch for the scalloped border and the circles are cut with Cricut george @ 1 1/2 and a 5" cut off . Some punched butterflies on paper I coloured with promarkers to match the image, some satin ribbon and three heart buttons from my stash and I was done!
Thanks as always for looking and if you join us at the Cuttlebug Spot this weeke there's another great prize up for grabs!
