I made this card earlier this year for one of Hubby's secretaries for her daughter's 13th birthday, and what better cartridge to use than Paper Doll Teen Scene?
The card base is A4 in size and the papers from my stash - don't know who made them!- met the colour brief perfectly. I cut the doll from white cardstock, then coloured her with a blush ProMarker, as I find it difficult to find decent flesh-toned cardstock. I then gave her a patterned paper dress and sparkly shoes. I added a necklace, earrings and bracelet using gems. A hand cut glittery parcel was adhered to her hand. The completed figure was adhered to a central embossed panel with foam pads.
The sentiment and name were were cut from glittercard and adhered flat to the card. A smattering of bling completes the card.
Carts used;
Doll- Paper Doll teen Scene
Sentiment, name and 13th- Suburbia

Badger Birthday.......

I'm not sure whether I've shown this card as yet, but here goes anyway.
I made this card last year as a commission. The brief was black and white and badgers. Ok. So, I didn't have a badger image on a cart so I went to trusty old Google Images and found this image of a badger. I printed it out three times then decoupaged it. I used paper from DCWV Neutrals stack choosing a black and white palette. I kept the design simple (as always with commission cards) matting the badger image onto black and white cardstock and adhering it to the centre of the card with foam tape. I added a stamped sentiment, again matted with black and white cardstock. '65' was cut from black glitter card shadowed with white cardstock then adhered with foam pads above the image. A smattering of monochrome Card Candi completes the card.
Cart used:
'65'- Art Deco

I made this card a couple of months ago for Rhea's hubby Phil, but Rhea's mum Mary gave me the wrong date and it went to him on her sister Menai's fiancĂ© Krish's birthday instead! Oops! Never mind. It's his birthday next week so he can hoik it out of the drawer and put it out!
Phil loves playing cricket, so I went to www.printableheaven.co.uk and downloaded a sports collection which included this cricketer and background papers. The image is a pyramage, which after assembling I matted onto blue cardstock, and adhered it to the front of an  8" square card, decorated with the cricketer paper and 'cigarette card' paper. I stamped 'Happy Birthday' with Memento black ink above the image, and added cricket balls cut from some ancient paper in my stash. I added acrylic bubbles to the balls to make them shiny. 'HOWZAT!' & 'PHIL' was cut from pale green cardstock shadowed with blue.
All the elements on the card were adhered with foam pads/tape.

HOWZAT ! & PHIL- Hannah Montana

Lottie Rose.......

Krishnan's girlfriend Sofia asked me to make her a card for her cousin's adorable little girl Lottie's Christening, and she also asked me if I would make one for her mum & dad as they were to be Godparents, and I duly obliged.
The first card is the one that I made for Joe & Nina, Sofia's mum & dad. It was very simple, with the details computer generated onto a piece of white cardstock, leaving room above for a beautiful, yet simple cross, cut from pink, pearlised cardstock with a mirri backing and decorated with a small ribbon bow and pearl flower. The panel was matted onto pink & silver mirri cardstock then adhered to an 8" scalloped square card. Two die-cut flourishes embellished with pearl flowers completes the card.

The card that I made for Sofia is equally simple, with the same base card, but this time the white cardstock is embellished with a swirl embossing folder. The cross, again was cut from pink pearlised cardstock and layered onto rainbow mirri. 'Lottie Rose' & 'Christening' were cut from the same materials. Three pearlised pink butterflies completes the card.
