First Card for Joint Birthday Party

Hello Fellow Bloggers

I have managed to make the two birthday cards with a couple of days to spare - not like me LOL! But I do want to make a bookmark to go with a book for one of the presents, so that will probably be last minute!

For the card I'm showing today, I have followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers. The digi image is Miss Bitty from Fred She Said, and I have coloured her with Promarkers and added diamond stickles to her wings. The papers are My Minds Eye Quite Contrary. The plain card I've used for the matting and layering is a plain ivory textured card which I bought from Crafters Companion, and I coloured around the edge with Promarkers to match the image. The sentiment is a digi from Pollycrafts.

Unfortunately, for some reason, the glue I used to stick the punched flowers has seeped through and spoiled the flowers. So, after photographing the card, I removed the spoiled flowers, re-punched them, and added flower gems - sorry I haven't been able to take a photo of the improved card, it's just too dark! I'll try to upload another piccie tomorrow.

Here's my card: (edited to add improved card)

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers - Use punches (my punched flowers)
Kaboodle Doodles - Do it with digis
2 Sisters Challenge - Gettin girly
Incy Wincy Designs - Go dotty

Must say goodnight now - I will show the other birthday card tomorrow.

Love, Andrea xx
