Its Get Funky Challenge Time!

Did you catch the shows that I did on Create and Craft last week?  I had great fun working with Leonie on both of them and the Happy Happy Birthday CD ROM went down a storm with the viewers.  I've had a few questions about the ring I was wearing for the shows..If you didn't see it I'll be back with some pictures and info on another post.. now why am I posting today? Oh yes...

It's my turn to offer you some inspiration for this months Get Funky Challenge from our lovely Jenny which is BIRTHDAY FUN

Well, with no more chat here is my card..

I made it using papers and images from my latest craft CD release Happy Happy Birthday.  The collection I used is Sunshine Birthday.  It's pretty bright as you can see so I decided to colour the topper I created by putting the three outline images together rather than use the pre coloured images available on the CD as well.

I coloured them using Promarkers in colours Lime Green, Canary, Bright Orange and Amethyst.  I used Cool Grey 1 to highlight the images around the edges so help them stand out from the white card.  Here's a closer look..

You may be wondering what I have done with the paper behind the topper..well I had my first go at a bit of paper pleating.  I'm not one for having things all perfectly neat and repeating beautifuly so I scored the paper at random points and got a slightly different effect.  Uneven in other words!!

I am thinking of adding this to my list of video tutorials that I will be filming in the near future so look out here and on my website for the link!

Before I go today I wanted to tell you about the weekly challenge that is going on over on the Daring Card Makers blog at the moment.  It's to make a birthday card with at least one candle on but, Funky Hand is the sponsor so you can win a copy of  Happy Happy Birthday if your card is chosen.  You need to be quick as the challenge closes today but if you are could enter both our challenges with just one card!!

So get yourselves over to Get Funky and Daring Card Makers today and join in, you could be a double challenge winner!

Speak again very soon
