A Card for a Child

Hello All, with an extra special hello to my new followers. I am so happy you've joined me. I hope you'll find something here to inspire you, or at least give you a smile.

It's challenge time again at Ruby's Rainbow and the theme this fortnight is

SOMETHING FOR A BABY OR A CHILD

and here's what I came up with:


This gorgeous little clown is from The Digi Garden. I have coloured him with copics and glittered him up with Kindy Glitz glitter glue. All the card stock is bits and pieces left over from my Christmas card creations and the paper is Imagininsce "Boy Oh Boy". I even got out my little Memory Keepers sewing tool and handstitched the red card stock with some lovely blue thread successfully (this tool and I were on non-speaking terms for a while after I lost any ability to use it without destroying the cardstock).

I actually intended for the embossed bit of blue cardstock to go under the DP - but got caught up with the double-sided tape and before I knew it the DP was firmly stuck down and I had no alternative but to stick it on top. Oh well, could have been far worse - I was heavily distracted by the final episode of Family Ties and Michael J Fox was in tears.. it was gripping stuff.

Please head over to Ruby's Rainbow and see the fabulous creations my teammates have done.

Also entered into the following challenges:

Tracey
