Birthday Party Owen

It is time for another challenge over at The Paper Funday.
Our challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. 
The twist this time is the theme 'Halloween OR Add Purple'

We are very fortunate to have 2 sponsors for each challenge this year which means we get to choose which artist we would like to work with. This really is great as it gives us double the choice. We are very lucky with the amazing sponsors that are lined up this year, many of which are old favourites and some are new to me. This month our Sponsors are Fred She Said Designs & Paper Nest Dolls

I chose to work with Birthday Party Owen from Paper Nest Dolls. I have been making a concerted effort to make more masculine cards this year both young men and older ones and loved this fun image. I very rarely make halloween projects so opted for the purple option and knew this would be a great way of adding lots of colour including purple.

All the papers and card are from my scraps and I assembled the majority of the card before I coloured the image. This enabled me to use fun papers with several colours and then used those to ensure the card was co-ordinated. The background paper is from one of my favourite ever paper pads the Glitter Stack from DCWV. I loved it so much I bought it in 12" and 8" versions. The glitter is encapsulated and fun for a male card but not girly.

The final touch then was to add the foiled sentiment from Craftwork Cards which has been matted onto co-ordinating layers.

I hope you will join myself and our fabulous Team over at the Paper Funday Challenge.
