Penny Black and More - December Challenge

Happy Sunday and thanks so much for visiting! I hope you are all doing well. 

Since today is the first Sunday of the month, we have a new challenge for you over at Penny Black and More. As always, we have some very generous sponsors again, lots of prizes to be won. I hope you'll join us!

We have another easy theme  this month - Celebrations. This works for any type of celebrations, including Christmas of course. I can't wait to see what you make!

I went with a Birthday Celebration theme, as I needed a card for my nephew. You'd think with all the cards I make I should have plenty on hand when I need one, but the truth is, all I could find were too girly, so I made this one. 

 I  used the stamp Prize Cupcake, which you can find in my Etsy shop.

Speaking of my shop - all the Christmas stamps are on Sale. No coupon code needed for this one, I have marked the new prices in the shop.

Now onto my card, I colored the image using copic markers and then fussy cut. Layered it onto some papers and stamped the sentiment, which is an old one from SU. I added a little bit of glitter and sequins. 

Just seeing now, that I forgot to add a dark background behind the bottom portion of the wheel. Why do I never notice this before I put it on the computer!!?? And of course the card has been sent off, so I can't even fix it anymore! Hope my nephew didn't notice :-)

I am playing along here:

  2. I'm sure your nephew loved his card Ellie. I like the angled ribbon which makes the ground for your beautifully coloured PB image.I like the distressed edges too. Works well for a boy card.
