Happy Brrrrr-thday!

jsldt13thapril 001


Just a reminder that the For a Child challenge at Just Some Lines  is still open.You could be in the running for a super prize.You need play along with a Just Some Lines image to enter and one random winner will get 4 digi stamps of their choice.It doesn’t stop there tho’ as the Top 3 will get one digi stamp each too!There is a freebie to get you started too or you can choose one from Just Some Lines here.

For my card I’ve used the totally cool Birthday Penguin by Just Some Lines and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.Now for this card I didn’t follow my usual creative process…in fact I had no idea where I was going with it.Sure I’d picked the image,papers and red card but normally I have some idea of a layout in my head.Not this time.Even the kraft base and layers were on a whim.Next I sifted through my large die collection to gain some inspiration.Plus this gave me the chance to use some of my newest and untouched dies 🙂 The arch shape would fit this little chap perfectly and I fancied making some bunting with these little flag shapes.I strung it up with some baker’s twine suspended on some brads to allow it some free movement.The lettering was made with an old die set that I haven’t used for years – literally!!The word ‘birthday’ is part of the sentiment that’s included with the image.I hand cut the fishtail piece running along the bottom of the card and added more brads.So for a card that I had no clue what  it was going to end up as  I’m pretty pleased how it turned out 🙂

    Hi Lisa – I just love that banner! It is the coolest thing – and of course the Penguin too! I also wanted you to know that Chriss is sorry for not uploading her card on time – she is fine now and I know that you are very understanding of the circumstance that she has a lot in her brain and sometimes it is hard to get things sorted out but rest assured she will be doing great for the next challenge – enjoy your week! Gail
