CR84FN #12

Hi there

I have a couple of mini cards to share with you today.  My daughter needed a card for her friend at school so I made these with PTI Tiny Treats: Valentine.  I just adore this little stamp set, it's all so tiny, LoVe it!  I wanted a tiny sentiment, but not with a lovey message so I used Wonderfully Whimsical's 'Happy Birthday' sentiment.   I had a play with my Copics to colour in the cake.  I'm really trying to practice more with my Copics instead of just storing them like I do with so many other things!  I've been checking out some tutorials, so if anyone has come across any good ones I'd love to hear about them. 

I created the first mini card using the CR84FN challenge colours.  I do find pastels quite challenging, so it's good to push out of my comfort zone every now and again!  I'm actually quite pleased with how this turned out.  I stamped the framed image using Tiny Treats: Valentine, die cut an MFT die-namic doily and mounted it onto PTI Dotty Biscotti paper with pop dots, having wrapped some ribbon around first.  My ribbon looked better before I started taking my photos, it all went pear shaped after that lol.  The brighter version of the card is very definitely more me, but I actually like how they both turned out.  Quick and easy to make while being cheery too! 

This is the inspiration pic for CR84FN.   The colours are light pink, lavender and kraft. 

I've been meaning to play along with Mona's challenge for a while, but never quite make the deadline for some reason, so I'm really pleased to have finally done it!! 

Enjoy the rest of your day :)
