Happy Birthday Roxy



I made this card for a very special little girl. She is the Granddaughter of one of our best friends. I have seen her grow up from being about 9 months old and she is such a pretty girl with the most amazing character. She loves to learn, is extremely bright and really reminds me of myself at her age. She comes out with the funniest things and is such fun to be around J

I was very lucky to have won a challenge at Emerald Faeries and chose this image as my prize as Roxy loves ladybirds and I knew it would be the perfect image for her birthday card.

I coloured the image using Promarkers & Flexmarkers, she loves the colour purple so the flower had to be that colour. I have added loads of stickles glitler glue to the wings so they were really sparkly. I used a Nestabilities die to cut out the image and inked the edges with a small pad.

The spotty paper is from the Family Ties First Edition pad by Dovecraft, again the edges have been distressed to knock it back a little. The black card is from my scraps box and I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch on it. The pretty sparkle swirl is by Prima and was on a big sheet. I just snipped it out from a couple of shapes until I was happy with the fit.

To personalise it I have used a chipboard number and some letter stickers from my stash and coloured them with a black marker. The sentiment is from my stash mounted onto a scrap of black card.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – A5
Sentiment – from stash
Paper – Familiy Ties First Edition pad by Dovecraft
Embellishments – Gem swirl by Prima, Chipboard number, letter stickers, Stickles glitter glue
Tools – Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Martha Stewart border punch,  Nestabilities Die, small ink pad
Techniques – Distressing, punching, die cutting

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