Shoe Of Purple Roses Birthday Card

Finally got around to making my entry for this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge. Has been a busy last few days for us, as we had to move my Boyfriend out of his Mother's house into my Parent's house with me. He helped me move some of his boxes so I could get to my craft stuff and make my card tonight. Hope you all like it. :D

Shoe Of Purple Roses Birthday Card


I used white card for my base card, which I covered with a purple glittered patterned cardstock. I then cut a square out of pink patterned paper. I cut a rectangle out of black glitter patterned cardstock and used a 3 heart rounded corner punch on the corners, I then attached it towards the bottom of my card. I cut a triangle out of pink patterned paper and attached it to the bottom left corner. I then glued a raspberry satin bow to the triangle.

 

I coloured in a free Beary Wishes Butterfly and Roses Digi Stamp in Photoshop, printed it on white card and trimmed around the shoe and roses part of the digi only. I then glued it to the center of the pink patterned square. Next I applied glitter glue to the roses and set aside to dry. Once dry I attached the image towards the top of my card. I then cut the back off 3 metallic pink brads and glued them down the top right side of my card. Lastly I used my labeler and pink metallic label tape to make the "Happy Birthday" sentiment, which I then attached to the black glitter patterned rectangle.


I was very pleased with how this card turned out and I would like to thank Anne-Marie from Willow Sketchie Challenge for a fantastic sketch. Good luck to all that enter. :D

    1. Thanks Donna :-* I was going to use my Craft Robo to cut a fancy square out of the pink patterned paper behind the shoe... But I couldn't get to it for all of Jim's boxes and I didn't feel like moving them... Lol ;)

    1. Thanks Hazel :-* I decided it was time to do another Google search for free digi's (as has been a while since I have done one) and as soon as I saw this shoe I just had to use it (as I'm a self confessed shoe addict ;))... She also had a similar one which I also downloaded, so might have to use it for next week's card ;)Awww... Thanks Hazel... I really appreciate your lovely comments week after week... Always inspires me to do better the next week :-* :-* :-*

    1. Thanks Shell :-* Normally I colour the digi first, then find the papers to match... But this time I did the opposite, as I knew those papers would look great with it. :D

    1. Thanks Pauline :-* I was tossing up whether or not to put the glitter on the roses... So I asked my boyfriend as I really couldn't decide... He told me to do it as it would make it "pop"... Don't tell him, but he was right, lol... I think it went really well with all the glitter papers too ;) Awww... Thanks Pauline... I always look forward to reading your lovely comments every week... You always inspire me to add that bit of extra zing to my cards week after week :-* :-* :-*
