Happy Birthday Flowers

I created this birthday card for the latest challenge over at 


Theme Weather related
Sponsored by Bugaboo

I used the image Ladybug Flower row which can be found HERE in the Bugaboo shop.

I coloured this image with copics and added some Wink of Stella to the dragonfly and butterflies.
I hand pierced and stiched around the image and matted in black cardstock
to make it pop on the golden brown background.
This card is going to a special friend for her birthday (a little later, but better late than never)

I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at Open-Minded Crafting Fun

A furry friend...and some exciting news

and often play along with the challenges.

This time, I'm exicted to share that I am a Guest Designer for
at
Eeeek...can you hear me squealing??

Of course it was a no-brainer which image I would use for this challenge.


I used the image The Little Penguin which can be found HERE in the Aurora Wings shop.

I coloured this with copics using my C1, C3, C5, C7 for the fur
and R46 for the Santa hat and stripe in the candy cane.
I used YG67 for the bow.
I embossed some red cardstock with little stars/snowflakes to give some texture to my card.
I hope you like it and are inspired to play along at Aurora Wings this time around.
