Happy Birthday Doug (lil brother)


Morning everyone and now we are into the second week of October and it's my baby brother's Birthday today.

This is the card I created for him I had earlier set myself the challenge of using one of the Daily Pink Challenges over at Craftmad to create a card for him.  Yes, I had to use pink.  I think I managed to get away with it though and it still looked manly enough.

I used the day four pink challenge - which is to create a spinner card (tutorial here).  Now I have done one of these but used 20c pieces and it ended up very clumsy but this uses 5c pieces and ran so smoothly.  Yes, I gave it a work out before handing it over to my brother. :-)

So I started with a blank white card, a layer of Stampin Up Briliant Blue and this wonderful patterned paper (sorry no name).  For the spinner section I printed out Happy Birthday on to some plan white paper and attached that behind the the Metallic Maroon cardstock.  I coloured this fun Penny Black hedgehog image with my copics.  I so love colouring this little guy and bringing him to life each time.





I just thought it needed a little more on the card.  So I added three brads top and bottom.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:

  6. This is brilliant honey - and yes you definitely pulled off the masculine still with the pink!
    You have me smiling lots here - you're after my own heart. I have a tendency to add glitter even when it's a male card. Hehe.
