INTAAS - Birthdays

'Birthday' is the theme set for this challenge over at International Art and Soul and was set by DT member Chriss.

Once again my card blank is a 7 x 7 by Craft UK. 

The base mat is yellow card by Hobbycraft topped with a CostCo paper in mottled green. I used this image that I last used about 2016 but I still can't remember who created this digi. I coloured him with my Promarkers and cut him with a Spellbinders oval die before matting on to a green scalloped oval. The only addition was the Happy Birthday sentiment set at the top left. I have a sheet of these sentiments which are sticky backed ready to fix to a coloured card of your choice as a background plate. I'm not sure where I got them from as I've had them for years and only used or two.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
AAABirthday - Anything Goes Birthday
digidesign - Add a sentiment
Arty Divas - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Hope to see you next time.

INTAAS The colours of Fruit

This challenge theme is 'The Colours of Fruit' and was chosen by DT member Jennie over at International Art and Soul.

After much thought I decided to use some die cut leaves to show the colours of various fruits.

My card blank is a 7 x7 by Craft UK.

I used yellow card by Hobbycraft as the base mat and then topped it with a caramel coloured card by Sue Wilson which I'd embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of leaves. I then used my various Spellbinder leaf dies to cut out an assortment of leaves. I was thinking of oranges, lemons, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries but I'm not sure what I was thinking of for the bright green leaf at the bottom!  lol

After arranging them at the bottom of the mat my only addition was the Happy Birthday sentiment which I generated on the computer before backing with more red card and setting at the top right. The various card was all supplied by Hobbycraft, Papermill and Sue Wilson.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - Summer + a Sentiment  (all these fruits remind me of summer)
Seize the Birthday - No Stamping
AAA Birthday - Anything Birthday Goes
Arty Divas - Birthday
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Once again, that's it till next time, hope to see you then.
