Winter Birthday - Guest DT Card

Hello!!!

I was given the opportunity to join Nikki's fabulous DT ladies at her Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge for their December monthly challenge. Woo-hoooooo..... And here is my card.


The theme for their Challenge # 19 is Fancy Folds/Shaped Cards. I took both options to mind...LOL...and made and oval-shaped easel card.



And as a guest DT, I get to choose a stamp from Nikki's Store Bunny Zoe's Crafts to use on my card. I've chosen this adorable Magnolia image called Tilda with Winter Flowers from their Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.


What a sweetie! And so versatile--that I've made a birthday card instead of a Chistmas card. I've coloured Tilda using my coloured pencils.

Challenges I am entering with this card:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #191 - Anything Goes
Stampalot December Challenge - Bingo (my three are: pearls, flowers, punch)


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by. If you're like me, you're all busy still working on those Christmas cards, aren't you? So your visit is very much appreciated.


Materials and Toos Used:

Stamps: Great Canadian Stamps 'Happy Birthday" (the other sentiment is computer-generated)

DP's: All the DP's used here are from Generations 6x6 Paper Pad Generations

Dies: Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals and Labels Eighteen; Magnolia Doohickey cutting dies Leaf and Swirl

Punches: EK Success medium Retro, Carla Crafts small cosmos flower

Miscellaneous: Tim Holtz distress ink stamp pad Vintage Photo; Pearls from my stash.

Medium: coloured pencils (Faber-Castel Polychromos, Derwent Coloursoft, Prismacolor Premier)
