Happy 70th Birthday


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 'A Day At The Beach'
 

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. 

We are sponsored this month by Alex Syberia Designs & Mirtillamente, both of which I have not used before. 


For this challenge I chose to work with a gorgeous image from Alex Syberia Designs.

Grateful Heart A2 Card Panel was the perfect image to use to make a card for the lady across the road. Her husband went into hospital before Christmas 2020 and she lost him to Covid early last year. She lives with her son who has become a recluse and it is as if she is on her own. It is so very sad as she has very few family left now. When she mentioned a while ago it was it was her 70th birthday this year I just knew I wanted to make a special card for her.

This card is UK A5 in size so I made the panel as large as I could to fill the base, allowing space to mat it with gold and white card. The image was so crisp and clear so definitely not restricted to A2 size only.

It has been coloured with a combination of Promarkers, Spectrum Noir markers and Arteza Expert pencils for shading. I added gold Stickles glitter glue for a bit of sparkle.

The image was matted onto gold cardstock and white. I then added some old sparkly ribbon and made a tag with a sentiment added to a scrap of magenta card and embellished with a gold brad.

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