A Birthday Card

I had meant to post this card tomorrow, but yikes... I just noticed that one of the challenges which I was following to make this card ends tomorrow!!!! ... and I definitely didn't want to miss this one.. I made such an effort ... so I decided to post it today instead and then do my blog hopping tomorrow as have to go out now ...

Here it is... like ? I used Karen's Cat and Mouse stamp for my card today, which I coloured with my promarkers...


Wasn't sure which photo I liked best.. taken in the sun or not..

so I uploaded both :|



This is the photo inspiration that I followed..


and the sketch ...


I wasn't going to try this sketch, you might have noticed that I usually follow easier ones, but then I decided to give it a go. What are challenges for if I always try easy one? But anyway, when I finished it... wow I said.... I like THIS !!!! I will definitely try the harder ones now even though they will take me hours to finish he he :)

I am entering this card in the Polka Doodles Acqua Promarkers Mega Contest and also in these other challenges..

1 - Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 25 - PHOTO INSPIRATION
2 - Cute Card Thursday Challenge 122 - THE SKETCH
3 - Karen's Doodles UK Challenge 20 - A BIRTHDAY CARD

Thank yo so much for looking today, hope you had a great weekend. Was very windy here in Malta, but we still went for a swim.. must upload some photos ..

Super cute card Dora! I love the papers you used! I know what you mean about taking hours to make a card! I seem to do one little detail, tidy my space up a bit, then do another bit, tidy up again. I think if I did less of the tidying I'd get more card making done!

This is just beautiful those colors (matching the hearts so well)! LOVE IT! Great sketch, you matched it perfectly. Amazing what a little sun will do to colors of papers! I like the sun shot better!

Lin said...

This is adorable. I love the soft subtle colouring and you have followed the sketch to perfection. I agree with Cor. Amazing what difference a little sun can make and I prefer the first shot too, it's warmer looking.

Anyhow enough of my waffling. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.
