This is my entry for the 'Happy Birthday Bryan' Challenge over on Emma's blog - Emmas Cards Uk.com. http://www.emmascardsuk.com/p/emmas-crafty-challenge.html
To make my card I used A4 Centura Pearl cardstock to make an easel card and matted and layered using silver mirri and backing paper from Tumble Ted Pastimes Collection CD Rom 1 from Cupcakecrafting.
The card I was making was for my son's friend Nick's birthday and my son had asked for a card with a Manchester City footballer on. This was the nearest thing I had and I used Craft Artist to alter the colour of the mat so that it matched the background paper. (I had to go on the internet to find out what the Man City shirt was like.) As a Newcastle supporter, it pained me to make a Man City card!!
Again I used Craft Artist to make a matching sentiment. For the purpose of the challenge, I put the name 'Bryan' on the sentiment but changed this before giving it to my son to send off to Nick.
Thank you for calling by. If you have time, please leave a comment. I always like to read your comments.
