Pink Winter Birthday

The Lexi's Creations challenge is:

Pink Winter Birthday

So, in my quest to use up all the scraps in my overflowing shoe box (and its a big box as my husband takes size 13!) I managed to find these offcuts which I am sure are from a Funky Hand cd (or maybe two!) The image is from Simple Doodles and I've coloured it with Promarkers. I chopped the loopy bits off the top of the image and added some random bits of black and hot pink ribbon instead to make it more tactile.

The spotty organza ribbon across the centre was a perfect size for the card! I didn't have any more and it was a shame to waste so it had to be used!

I've used a sheet of acetate as the card base which was another light bulb moment - two in one week!!

  • Backing papers: Funky Hand
  • Image: Simple Doodles, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
