Happileigh Scrappin' #36

We have a new challenge today over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges which is is to make a card featuring a Girl.

There are so many girl images out there and I hope you will see that Leigh has a great selection in the
Happileigh Scrappin' store as showcased by the Happi Sisters :)

For my Card I have used Jenny on Swing

I have made a centre step card using a tutorial at Top Tip Tuesday (thanks guys!!) I have wanted to have a go at one for a while and this image felt perfect for it. My fave colour scheme is pink and brown so I coloured the image with Promarkers to suit. I used the bright pink cardstock for the base and cut it as per the instructions. I don't have a scoreboard the same so approximated the measurements and I am happy with the proportions. The side panels are 2" wide each and that left a fair sized area in the middle for the image.

I am prod to say that the patterned paper, pink cardstock for the punched trim and brown cardstock for the matting on the image are all snippets so Jules will be pleased :)

I have used a gorgeous velvet ribbon for the bottom and layered some cardstock stickers together from Doodlebug with a pink gem in the centre.

There are loads of fabulous images in the Happileigh Scrappin' Store and Leigh has also got some gorgeous new designs available. With every purchase you this gorgeous image and sentiment free........

Also for every 3 images you purchase you can choose an extra one absolutely free. There are loads of fab images just itching to be played with so you will find it easy to spend your pennies I promise you :)

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 and they are all so different.

Remember, for our challenges you don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image but if you do you it will be entered into a separate draw. 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 myself and the DT love to see your creations, so come on over to

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - A5 Centre Step
Paper - scraps of brown card, pink card and patterned paper by Dovecraft
Sentiment - Miscellaneous foiled banner from stash
Embellishments - velvet ribbon, cardstock stickers from Doodlebug, geme from Paperchase
Tools - 3D Foam & Scissors, Promarkers, Martha Stewart Doily lace punch, Fiskars Treading water punch
Techniques - Multifold card, punching

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