I was asked to make a birthday card with the following remit - for a young lady who loves music, girly but not too girly, no flowers or masses of things on the card and to include some stars but the reason why (she's the star in their eyes!!).
Oh my goodness me I thought but then my Kenny K image called Mad Skillz came to the rescue. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and cut out with my Nestabilities die and inked around the edges with a chalk ink pad. The backing papers are a mixture of from my stash and the lovely glittery one is a new one given to me by a blogging friend. The card has been finished off with some organza ribbon, Craftwork cards sentiment, peel-off stars and two Papermania gem brads (these are new to me - I got them for my birthday back in October but they were sooooooooooo nice I had to keep them a while but I feel it's now time to start using them).
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Kenny K's Challenge - New beginnings (new paper and brads for me)
Crazy 4 Challenge - New Year - new toys - new techniques
Crafty Calendar - New news with the option of button and bows
Mark's Finest Papers - Brads or eyelets
