Autumn Birthday Card


I was asked to do an autumn style birthday card ie fall colours for someone into fairies etc so thought this card was perfect.

For the card I have used various pieces of Crafty Ann's digital orange and black papers layered on top of each other - aren't they just yummy??  The papers have all been distressed with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad.  The image is a Sweet Pea Stamp which I won recently in a challenge.  She's gorgeous.  I have coloured her in with promarkers and highlighted areas with Sakura Stardust clear pen.  The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade distress ink pad.  The flowers I have cut out and arranged on the card lifting them up to make a bit more height and dimension.  These along with the ticket sentiment are also from Crafty Ann's.  The card is simply finished off with some sparkly ribbon.

This card will fit the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday - Layer it on
Sentimental Sundays - Autumn/fall
Magical Monday - Back to nature
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes birthday

Lovely card, Kym!

Just wondering - how do you keep track of all the challenge details all the time? I've started an excel wordsheet to write them all in, with any entries I submit but was wondering how others do it - especially when you seem to enter such a lot. I'd really appreciate if you could leave me a comment on my blog about it.

Thanks x
