My Paper World Sketch /Arty Girlz challenges


I love using Nicola's sketches.This is My Paper World sketch #10. Arty Girlz challenge this week is "Wings" so I decided to enter my card for both. I made this birthday card for a friend who will be celebrating her special day in a couple of weeks. I stamped the Lost Coast Designs image in Adirondack Cranberry ink, onto cream cardstock. This image was then mounted onto plain burgundy paper. I cut some patterned paper and placed it onto an A5 cream blank. The matted image was then adhered to this. The papers are by Hot Of The Press. I took a large green brad and added a birthday rub-on, both by HOTP. In the top corner I attached a Bazzill Blossom, with a red button in the middle. I tied some fibres through the ribbon before sticking it down.
I love this image and it looks great in a different colourway as I had only seen it in black or brown ink before. I hope my friend likes it to :0)
