Rosie with Cake for ACR's 1st Birthday

*If you're here for my Candy follow this link*

Wheeee! It's Friday! Thank goodness for that I say, having 3 days off is lovely till you return to work and your in box looks like you've been off for a month! It's been a busy 4 days for me.  Luckily, I'd already made this card a few weeks ago when I was having my first play with Inktense pencils and a LotV stamp after my visit there for their birthday bash, and how very appropriate it is because it is A Creative Romance's first birthday, yay!

To celebrate some of the Chic Crafters and Elegant Artisans are joining together to put on a Blog Hop for you.  If you've never joined in on a blog hop before, all you have to do is jump from blog to blog, and if you get lost, just pop back to the main blog here, to pick it up again.

The theme this time is Anything Goes, with the option of Happy Birthday if you want. I can't wait to see what you all make. 

Now since it's a special occasion the challenge will run for a whole month rather than our normal 2 weeks, AND we have 3 great prizes to give away. As always the prizes will be drawn at random from the challenge entries, but make sure you stop at each blog in the hop and leave a comment, as we also have some extra prizes hidden along the way, and who knows where they might be?!

I haven't been with the girls since the start of the challenge blog, but I've had the best time being here and I still can't really believe they chose little old me to be on one of their teams.

So anyhoo...on with my card. I made a birthday card and this actually went to a friend to give to her mum for her birthday. I've popped links to my items at the end of my post.


The image is Rosie with cake from LotV. The shape is cut with a Go Kreate die, I used a different shape for the second layer, and the frame is a Spellbinders oval.


I coloured her with my Inktense pencils and as this was my first try I wasn't noting colours, but I do know that I used Teal Green and Red Violet for the clothing. The gorgeous flowers are a mix from TRG, WOC, Prima and a gift from a friend. The sentiment is also from LotV as is the lush paper.


The ribbon is the last piece from my stash and the lovely bling is from the Handcrafted Card Company.
