Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 83

This time at Crafty Cardmakers, the challenge, set by my team-mate Kim, is to make a belated birthday card! It can be any theme, intended for any recipient, but it must have a sentiment that makes it clear it's a belated birthday card.

Our sponsors this time are Milk Coffee who have a gorgeous selection of images to choose from.


I was lucky enough to work with one of our sponsor's images this time - and it seemed perfect to me for the theme! It's called Lady with Antique Bicycle (although that bike looks remarkably like mine, and although it's not new, I don't think it's an antique!)

Isn't that a pretty image? I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements before printing, then coloured with Promarkers. I cut the image with a Spellbinders die (labels 8) and cut a frame using the decorative labels 8. (And am I the only person who'd love to see Grand Labels 8 too?)

The paper is a Kate Knight design from magazine last year, and I finished with some Spellbinders die cut butterflies which I'v shaded with Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire.

I hope you can join us this time. Go on, you know you need a belated card in your stash!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Forever Friends where the theme is 'birthdays',
Moving Along with the Times where the theme is 'birthdays',

Divas by Design where they want it 'girly',
