Best wishes all round


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Birthday.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

So,I thought I’d play with my recently acquired Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle again to colour the adorable Scruff – Make a Wish by Crafty Sentiments Designs.I chose these muted tone papers and distressed the edges too.Decided to add a lot of die cut circles and rolled some scraps of the papers to make the candles,hand cutting the flames.They’ve been tied together with some jute twine and the same twine has been used the to thread the buttons at the top of the card.As this was meant for my DH’s Birthday I gave it a masculine feel – well,hopefully 😉
