Birthday 4 kids

   Well it's the third Saturday in the month which means the start of a new challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids. The theme this time is 'birthday fun 4  kids' and we are again being sponsored by three generous companies: Bugaboo ( 7 digis ), Lacy Sunshine ( 3 digis ) and Fred She Said ( $10 gift certificate).

   For my first card I matted and layered paper from Papermania onto yellow mirri and then white card. I coloured the digi  called 'make it snappy birthday girls' from Bugaboo using Promarkers, matted it onto black card and fixed it to the card at an angle.

   Like most other papercrafters I have plenty of design paper in my stash, This spotty one was one of my first acquisitions. I matted and layered it onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card. The digi image is from Lacy Sunshine and is called 'Rory - life's a bag of sunshine'. I coloured her using Promarkers and matted the image onto core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to the card.
   The sentiment was cut from pink core'dination cardstock using Tattered Lace dies and each was matted and layered onto green core'dinations cardstock and white card before attaching to the card using foam pads.
   I finished the card by glueing three golden sun embellishments to the card. (Well the sunshine in the bag has to come from somewhere!)
