Hey, here is a card I made for the Little Red Wagon challenge using a watermelon picture as inspiration. I have had this Sarah Kay image for about a year and never used it so i'm very pleased to have found a challenge which fits it so fully.
Firstly, I stamped the image and coloured it using copics markers. I then rounded the corners with a corner punch and edged the image using pale green ink. I then cut a pink backing for the image using one of mums dies.
Next, I edged my backing card with pale pink ink and backed it with darker green paper. I then used pale pink and pale green papers ontop of the green backing. I used a butterfly punch down the edge of the pink paper which I emphasised with pink ink and attached green spotty ribbon down the join of the two papers.
I found an 'On Your Birthday' sentiment which I cut a second backing circle for and inked pink. I then hung a leaf charm off the sentiment. I cut two pink butterflies from the Cheery Lynn designs exotic butterfly die cut set; I then embossed one with pink and green embossing powders and layered them ontop of each other with a pink gem in the centre. For the flowers and leaves, I used the Marianne Creatables, Tim Holtz Alterations and Joy Craft Floral Flourishes die cut sets. I inked these up with green and pink inks, curved the petals and layered them up with a small flower brad in the centre. I added three little flowers to the top of the sentiment with a small round brad in and to finish, I added a pink gem to the corners of the green backing.
