The Craftwork Cards stand is always one of my favourites at the NEC as there is always new Card Candi to be had! This year I ended up buying some lovely floral patterned and spotty ones in various colour combos- I'm sure they'll be appearing on some cards on here soon enough. This year I also picked up a bargain set of their new 'Dolly Mixtures' range. It included a 6x6 paper & die-cut pack, dis-cut tickets, 10 lady toppers and a pack of fancy edge 6x6 cards- all for £10. I chose the 'Coleen' papers but the 'Amy' toppers in my set. I've used the topper and elements from the 6x6 pad to make this card.
I started with the topper, which I coloured using a mix of Spectrum Noirs & Promarkers. The dress is paper pieced using a paper from the 6x6 pad and embellished with a matching colour of Card Candi from my stash. I also used Glossy Accents to add shine to the martini glass. When the glossy accents was dry, I mounted the topper onto some silver mirror card and then onto a spotty paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I mounted this onto the bottom corner of the card base. The paper ribbons and hearts both came from the 6x6 pad, as did the flags that I have used to create the bunting at the top of the card. I attached the flags with 3d foam and then used my black promarker to draw on the string. I then used black peel-off letters to spell out 'Happy Birthday'.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
