Happy Belated Birthday
Here is the third card of four birthday cards I need this month. Actually the birthday was in July but luckily we haven't got together yet so I'm good!!
I continued with the Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss paper pack. This time I used Kraftin' Kimmie's Eleanor. She was fun to colour. I used a bit of some homemade glitter spritz on the flowers and some Hero Arts gems for the center. And for a bit more bling, I added some Diamond Stickles to the flowers on Eleanor's hat. The sentiment was popped up using some mini pop dots.
I finally made my own cloud background with some sponge and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I simply cut out a piece of cardstock in the shape of a cloud and sponged around it all over the white background of the stamped image. I'm very happy with how it turned out and it's actually not so intimidating like I thought :-)
I used I Love 2 Stamp's August Sketch for You to Try.
I'm also entering this in the Crafty Calendar's August Challenge - Hot Colours and The Crafty Pad's Challenge #134 - Cute n' Girly and of course I also entered The Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday #53.
