Stampin' For The Weekend blog challenge number 1, the first challenge of 2014 and the theme is Happy Birthday. We have a sponsor for this challenge, Live and Love Crafts but
I have used the freebie image below by The Paper Nest Dolls. (This link will take you through to the image on their website).
I thought I would colour the animals in as though they are stuffed toys so I could choose alternative colours for them (I prefer, as many people know, to colour my cards to the nearest colour match I can to real life). It was logical to me, that being a stuffed toy image that I would use it for a younger child's birthday hence the number 1 in the topper (right hand top corner). Obviously also, for a younger child, the brighter the colours used, the better so I used a lovely spring green & bright yellow cards from my own stash. I used Promarkers & Graph It pens with touches of Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter pen in a "clear star" colour. All card stock used was purchased from Papermill Direct website
Making the easel card was the next step with gold glitter peel off letters spelling out Happy Birthday on the width way stopper, finishing off with Stickles glitter glue in mint green to form 3 drops to the left side & a stitching effect around the number one topper.
