Birthday Challenge at Di's Digis (Di's Digis image)

Hi crafty friends,

Our electricity went out last night for the first time in a long time, I am feeling very sad for all those that keep losing power, we didn't know what to do with ourselves so we all had a nice early night.

Anyway, my card is a little late posting as I couldn't do it without power but I am now letting you all know about Di's Digis (blog) latest challenge which is Birthdays. I chose to do a boy's card and of course used a gorgeous image from Di's Digis(store). I created a little scene with a Fiskars grass border punch and a fence from Flourish with a Bling which I cut to have 2 palings on each side.

Girl on a branch card (Wee Stamps image)

Hi crafty friends,

I have wasted soooo much time trying to get a good photo of this card but for some reason I cannot get everything looking like it does in real life! It's so frustrating, do you ever have that problem? It's happens to me every so often, it must be the colours or something. So I have gone with the photo that shows off the beautiful brown rhinestone flourish and green leaves both of which are from Flourish with a Bling. This meant the papers and image are a bit darker and duller than they are in real life, it looks really whimsical and light IRL. The sweet image is from Wee Stamps.

A Gem of a Challenge - Children's playtime
Bunny Zoe - For the girls 
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything goes with patterned paper

Dragon in Love card (Conie Fong/Sweet Pea Stamps image)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm so pleased with how this photo came out, sometimes it is so difficult to photograph shaped cards, do you find that too? 

I used my old retro flower punches for a lot of this card. I cut the punched flowers in half, curled their petals and stuck them behind the other papers (the white and red flowers but 2 different sizes). I doodled some stitching just for fun too. The sweet little dragon is drawn by Conie Fong and you can find it at Sweet Pea Stamps.
