Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge #21


There is a new challenge over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges this week and as the Birthstone for May is the Emerald we would like to see an Emerald card or a Birthday Card. If you manage to incorporate the 2 you will get 2 entries into the challenge, how cool is that :)

I used the Colleen in Heart Dress digi which is available to purchase HERE

in the Girly Girls section at the Happileigh Scrappin' Store.


For my creation I started with a sketch from Eat, Sleep, Stamp for the layout and as I had already coloured the image in with Promarkers I set to work choosing papers to go with it. The base card is a pale green with the white and green flower paper by Dovecraft over it. The darker green paper is by Imaginisce. The lace has a thin green ribbon threaded through it and I used 3D foam to give some dimension to Colleen. The birthday banner sentiment is from my stash.

Please pop on over to see the lovely creations my Happi Sisters have added. There are lots of lovely cards to feast your eyes upon.

Remember, for our challenges you don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image but if you do your entry counts twice and with freebies available here it is easy to use one of Leigh's fabulous digis.

We would love to see lots of entries in this challenge. Leigh gives away her lovely digis to the top 3 so it is well worth entering and me and the DT love to see your creations, so come on over to

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order):-
