We've got more snow here :(
We don't want anymore thank you, we're looking forward to spring arriving and the white stuff just spoils it.
The only good thing about having snow, is that it makes you want to shut yourself away in a warm room surrounded by craft stash and a mug of something hot (and maybe a couple or six of mcvities double chocolate digestives - mmmmmmm! )
The following card was made for the challenge and using the sketch from Seize the Birthday, who want us to make a feminine birthday card this week...
The cute image is a prize from Crafty Sentiments and is called Tess Summer Fun. It has a floral background to it and although very pretty, I decided to use just Tess alone for this card, this is the reason I requested this particular image because you can use her with or without the background and also with long hair or even give her a haircut and she has a short bob hair style. I like to get images that can be used in more ways than one.
I used some lovely floral paper that was free with a craft mag and is called 'sew pretty'
The diamond patterned paper is by Nitwits.
I also used gold mirror card, xcut scalloped circle die, sentiment from SU fun and fast notes stamp set.
As well as the Seize the Birthday challenge, I'd also like to enter this card at:

This next card is a stepper card (love this style of card).
I have used the adorable 'Cat with flower' digi image from Motivet and coloured with promarkers, lots of blending in this one with different shades of browns to get the effect I wanted. I used caramel, tan, cocoa and umber.
The patterned paper is from an old pad I had when I had a cricut machine and is called 'tags, bags, boxes and more'.
Just for you sentiment is from my SU 'Oval All' stamp set, and the flowers were punched using my SU boho blossoms punch. The leaves are from a woodware punch.
