Warm Birthday Wishes

It's my friends birthday today and as she has spent Christmas skiing in France I wanted a winter image for her card - I was sure I had Stamping Bella's Snowbunny in my stash but I think I must have just liked it a lot when I've seen others use it as I definitely don't have it (yet).  So, as I had my Bella file out, I opted for Quinn, one of the Uptown Girls.

She is stamped onto kraft card and coloured with pencils with a little sansoder for blending and a gold promarker for the buttons and coat trim.  I used the warm wishes sentiment that she comes with, but then added "on your birthday" using words from the say it loud set from Waltzingmouse.  I used a reverse corner punch on the image and the blue matt, then added a snowflake DP from DCWV to a plain kraft card base.

I am going to enter this into the Little Miss Muffet Challenge this week which is anything goes  and if you check out the site you can get a cute wintery freebie image to play with too :-D

It's also anything goes over at aud sentiments  so I'm entering their challenge too.

Happy New Year!


  1. Tara - this is just lovely, I'm sure your friend will love it. I do like the softness of colour you get when using pencils on kraft card. I really must give it a try!
