Card for a Special Friend


I made this card recently for a friend's birthday.  I used some Sweet Pea Stamps images that I coloured in with Promarkers.  I had real difficulty with the layout of the card as this was more 8x8 size and I hadn't done that size square before.  I used all papers from the stash I have which is dwindling slowly but surely.  The card is mainly red and white with some touches of grey and also some other colours on the stamped imagesI used my new X-cut flourish punch to add some decoration on the front, some Papermania Glitterations which I coloured some in red with my red Promarker.  I have finished the card off with some Dawn Bibby die-cut flowers which again I coloured with my red Promarker pen.


This card fits the following challenges:


Magical Crafts - Something for the girls
Cupcake Craft - Red and white
Sweet Pea Stampers - Wonderland
Crazy Amigo - Flowers
Simon Says - Things with wings
Gingersnap Creations - Botanical
Our Creative Corner - Blossoms
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Something girly.

A lovely card Kym. These Sweet Pea stamps appear to be sprouting rapidly all over blog land. Think I may have to investigate further. Love the two you have used and your layout is brilliant
