Well, Challenge #12 over at Crafting When We Can Challenges is quite appropriate for me as next month it is my daughters 'Big Birthday' she will be reaching the age of 13. She is growing into an amazing young lady, confident and thoughtful (usually) and she grows more beautiful everyday.
Anyhoo, our sponsor this challenge is the glorious
and here is my offering
This is a shaped card cut on my CraftRobo. I designed the whole thing except for the Happy Birthday. I designed the fret work and then used the 'accord heavy' text to make the number 13 and welded it together and cropped the fretwork into it. It was a process I thoroughly enjoyed doing especially as it is for my darling daughter. Who will be 13 in March. The photo isn't fantastic as I used my scanner to capture it and as there is quite a bit of dimension it has come out shadowy. Silver holographic card from Home Bargains is the base card and the backing is a pink butterfly vellum from stash. I have used little gems from Poundland in some of the openings and 2 ribbon bows (ribbon from Craft Den).
Now all you have to do is hop over to the Challenge blog and enter your 'Big Birthday' projects.
I will be adding these later as it's 2:30am and I'm going to bed now.
