Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 234 -Birthdays.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

  Josephine is hosting today and our challenge is Birthdays.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards, as long as it meets the challenge. 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

The background for this card was made using the Masterboard below.

This is done on an A3 watercolour paper with Distress Oxides, crackle paste and finished with gold gilding leaf.

This is the stencil I used for the Masterboard.

It's not easy to see but I've also used the same stencil to emboss a piece of white card using my Big Shot.

I don't often use coloured card blanks but have several in my stash. I'm sure you all know that deep cupboard that hold stuff that's not seen the light of day for years! Well I am determined to use it up sooner or later.

I've rounded off the corners to start with ready to mount everything.

And used a stitch effect stamp to edge the design, this is by Cresendoh and the lace effect is actually part of a die cut ribbon which just fits the width of the card and is by Marianne dies
I finished with some matching gems.

The flowers are by Altenew stamps - 'Adore You' and after stamping and colouring these I added some white lines to the darker sections of the petals and leaves with a Uni-ball Gel pen then had a little play with the positioning.

Before adding the flowers I stamped a sentiment. These stamps were a free gift from a magazine, really like them too.

 The close-up here shows the finishing touches of gems and more white dots on the stamens.

And there we have it, all done though I know there will be more to follow. There are several colours in the Masterboard so I intend using different coloured card blanks to match so watch this space.

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Just saw the Facebook post and had to check this make, previously unseen (been distracted a fair bit recently...). I recognised the stencil as I have the very one in my stash, quite a good one for backgrounds! The flowers look beautiful and I love the little details that finish the card.
I assume that you have now been contacted for your CVC voucher, what will you splurge on, I wonder....
