A Birthday Card For A Special Lady…

Our challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays is “Birthday Cards For A Special Woman (using pastel colours)”.  We were really lucky to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps for this challenge; I had a tough time choosing, but finally decided on “Dottie Celebrate” as the card I had in mind needed a fabulous image!!

I coloured Dottie using Pro-Markers in pastel lilac shades, keeping her hair blonde too.  The sentiment was printed at the same time as the image, with the exception of “fabulous” which I welded and cut from glittercard on the Silhouette, using the Grand Hotel font.  A few touches of Stickles and a few little gems for sparkle and the main panel of the card was complete.

Next, I cut a border from a sheet of Sienna glittered vellum by Papermania, attached them to the top and bottom of the main panel and laid it over two strips of lilac cardstock, using 3D pads for a bit of height.
