Practically Perfect

Here is my latest card for the Card Makin Mamas Design Team. The main topper comes from the brilliant Sassy Studio Designs and the theme is 'Happy Birthday'.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:-
The Pink Elephant 'Love is in the Air'- as I love Mary Poppins and she is, of course, in the air with her umbrella! Love to Create 'Feelin the Love' and Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Up, Up & Away'.

As soon as I saw the fabulous Mary Poppins image, this card was in my head. It is my most favourite film of all time & I knew that I had lots of things in my crafty stash that would match the theme.

I started with a 6x6 scalloped edge card blank (not sure what I used before these came out!) and a 6x6 sheet of DCWV cloud patterned paper. I used my cricut 'Elegant Edges' cartridge to cut the paper with a cloud style edge. I inked the edge of the paper with 'Chipped Sapphire' distress ink and stamped Big Ben (Kanban stamps) using 'London Fog' memento ink, before attaching to the base card with double sided tape. I then printed the digi stamp onto white card and coloured it using a mixture of Spectrum Noirs & Promarkers. I carefully cut around the image leaving a small white border and then used foam pads to put it onto the card. I used the DoCrafts Digital Designer software & the Portobello Road design disk to make the message topper, again attaching with 3d foam pads.
