Our camping trip was short but a nice time even if we did get some rain. It was much needed rain. We got more rain at the camp ground than we got at our house. Bummer! This evening I had a chance to make Valerie's birthday card. The twin's birthday is fast approaching and I need to get these done.
My image is Big Books Girl from Bugaboo Stamps. I added titles to the books in a photo editor. The books say, "Happy Birthday," "Birthday Girl," and "4 Years Old." I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers trying to match colors in the designer papers that I picked out. I die cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Wonky Circles. The designer papers are scraps from my scrap box. I backed each of the layers with reddish brown card stock to pop the color. I was going to add some gems to the card but decided against it. Valerie has peeled gems off my cards before and I don't want her to choke on anything so I just didn't add them. I am entering these challenges:
- Tuesday Morning Sketches: sketch
- Catch the Bug: photo inspiration (I did use some of the colors in the photo but I went with a school theme and the books because Valerie loves to read)
- Cutie Pie challenge: birthday theme
- Scribbles Designs: card for a child
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
