Cheers & Happy birthday

 Hi everyone, 

Today sees the start of yet another challenge over at Country View Challenges. This month Monika is hosting and her chosen theme is "Birthday card/gift". I have made a card with my most favourite girl by Janet Klein for AALL & Create: Miss Dee. It is a really simple and quick card which is good when you realise you forgotten to make one for your wine-loving friend! 

Here is how I made this really simple and quick card:

I started off by colouring Miss Dee. I used Copic Markers for this because for me this is the quickest way of colouring. 

Next I cut a panel out of some designer paper and rolled over some white paint with a brayer. While that was still slightly wet I sprinkled on some embossing powder and heated it. It has now some patchy spots of embossing. 

Next I added some washi tape, also by AALL & Create, to stand her on and some in the top right hand corner for balance. 

I stamped two of the sentiments of this set, also by Janet Klein for AALL & Create and cut them out. I adhered them to the panel.

I added some black lines under the words and adhered the panel onto a white card. 

We would love it if you played along with us! Just make sure to read the rules on the Country View Challenges blog before you so. (Link up top). 

A good selection of AALL & Create stamps are available from Country View Crafts. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
