Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #210 'Happy Birthday'


                         Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 210 Happy Birthday April 23rd
                                                Lin is hosting this fortnights challenge.

Anything you care to enter is fine, a card, a scrap layout, a mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it matches  the theme.   Looking forward to seeing your makes!

I used an image from Beccy's Place titled Gnomes from my Garden and a tutorial of hers titled 'Stippled Shadows'.    Must admit I need to practice this as I have not quite got it right. However the inspiration of colours and shadowing  (to some degree) came from the tutorial. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The border die  was borrowed from a friend and the floral embellishment I believe is from Marianne Designs. The designer paper is from a paper pack 'Cardstock Carton - Bright Splash'. I totally love it.
