Crafty Sentiments - birthdays


Its so frosty and foggy here today, unbelievable after our gorgeous sunny week but hopefully it will clear to let some sunshine through again:) I have been sitting on the back step a few days this week:) and boy does that grass need cut!!
Anyway on to my card, time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs and this week its birthdays!

I went with a different shape this week. Its a diamond fold but I added some grass cut on my cricuit machine to give more dimension.

Papers - patchwork pals
Embellishments - butterfly, gems, pearls, flowers
Medium - promarkers
Sentiments - LOTV

Rach said...

hiya hun, I go all over with the lightest colour that i used to blend the colours together, though sometimes it makes the other colours too light again.. this is when i go back in and just add a little more darkness, I very rarely use my blender pen, .. usually i use that on the ground shadow .. hugs rachxx
