Joyeux Noel & Happy 1st Birthday

One of Elysha's friends from community access program asked if I could make a card for her niece's 1st Birthday. This is what she wanted.
Mo's Digital Pencil image is perfect for the first birthday cake smash
that appears to be all the trend.

Coloured with Copics and used a cple of the Nuvo glitter pens at the bottom of the cake.
A die cut sentiment 'Happy Birthday' at the top from gold glitter paper (well a bit thicker than paper actually)

The pink glitter number '1' needed to sit where it is due to a little mess made by me and I didn't want to cut the card down any more. Some glitter gems requested as well so I added a couple of little flowers and a gem 'teddy bear'

She was very happy so thats what matters.

 Loose watercolour background using Distress Inks I love the soft colours and there is also so shimmer water used on this but the photo doesn't show it.

The giant snowflake and sentiment are both from CAS-ual Friday stamps, I found the sentiment there but not the snowflake and all my searches on google led me nowhere so I have to assume it is retired.

Well I love it and in silver heat embossing on this pale blue/mauve watercoloured background it looks wonderful. As it does on the other half dozen cards I made. I used a frame it die but then left it set into the diecut as I just wanted to trim and leave a nice outline.

There you go, a couple of cards, both perfect for the colouring challenge

I can only link one through the blog so will link
the 'Happy Birthday' and
the other through instagram. Catching up.

Happy birthday
