SPLASH OUT.....IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!


I'd like to share a card with you today that i've made with one of todays new releases from MELJEN DESIGNS available to purchase from WHIMSY STAMPS,every Thursday Melissa releases new digi images...well worth taking a look.
I knew as soon as i saw this image "Little Umbrella Boy" i would be paper piecing it...just needed to decide on what paper i would be using...finally settled with this gingham paper from Joanna Sheen...i've had it for ages now so not sure if she still sells it....must say good quality :0).I've edged the paper with "Black Soot" Distressing Ink i feel it gives alittle more deepth to the card.The ticket sentiments are a download from Crafty Ann's...i've used the blanks and added my own sentiments on the computer using MCS.
Sorry i should have said that the rest of the image as been coloured using Promarkers and Prisma's.
I've finished the card off with some black pearls.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-
MELJEN DESIGNS CHALLENGE(Thursday)...."Use 3 different shapes" ...a square(card base),a circle and rectangle.
TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS (Wednesday).....A Sketch and an optional extra of petals,pearls and pins....i've used some black pearls.

Well that's all from me today...
Have a great day whatever you've got planned
Take care
