Today is the start of our new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges - 323. The theme of our challenge is Use a Number. Well the first thing that came to my mind was a birthday card and I decided to make one for a young child.
I thought the number 2 was perfect for the balloons.
The sponsor for our current challenge is
And they have the Cutest digital images and a great selection.
Hope you check them out
Let me show you how this card was assembled
I started out with designer paper that I cut to be the panel on the purple card base.
I loved the flowers and the swirls and that became my inspiration,
but I wanted to add a little more purple.
So I hand cut some curved pieces out of purple card stock that I had in my saved papers.
So there was some of the extra purple I wanted
And I attached those curved pieces to the card front.
Next I wanted to have 3-D flowers on the card.
I had just picked up some white flowers in the bargain bin at Michael's,
however and they were just one size and they were white.
I sponged orange ink on the flowers and cut the petals on some of the flowers
to make some of the flowers smaller,
After looking at this card for a while I decided there was just too much orange,
so I used a small flower die and made some purple flowers to tone down all that orange.
All of the flowers have been placed over the flower images on the paper.
Next I colored my Cute As A Button image and fussy cut him out.
I added some feathers to the edges of Huey. (Not sure if you can see them.)
I also gave the balloons some dimension and added the number 2 on them.
Added the Happy Birthday sentiment to the top - and that finished the card.
Here is a closer view of this cute digi.
This is Baby Huey Buttons. (IMG00271)
I colored him with colored pencils and blended it out with gamsol.
