I stamped it onto a snippet of white card with Memento black ink and coloured it with Promarkers. Then I used the largest of the Exquisite Circles dies from Spellbinders Majestic Elements to cut it out and added a little blue ink to the edges. The backing paper is is from the LOTV Bonnets and Bowties pad that came free with a recent magazine. I cut it to fit on the front of a 6" square card. I used a snippet of red card to cut a square mat using the largest die from the Marvelous Squares set. When you use this die you get a nice square with shaped corners and pinprick holes all round the edge, but it also embosses an edge outside of the die which if you cut round carefully makes an attractive frame. I did this and fixed it to the front of the card with narrow DS tape. I stuck the stamped image to the red mat and then I made a little tag for the birthday greeting by using the smallest die from the Card Creator set, also from Spellbinders, using white card, and stamping the greeting with Brilliance rocket red ink. I drew round the outside of the die onto red card and cut it out by hand to make a narrow border. I used a tiny red brad to attach this to the edge of the stamped and mounted image, and used thin foam tape to fix this to the card.
I am going to enter this at Sugar Creek Hollow where the challenge is Eat and Drink,
and at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge where it is Butterfly Bingo, I have used DieCut, Butterfly and Designer Paper and of course as I have used several snippets I am scurrying over to Pixies Playground again.
Thank you all so much for dropping by, and for your comments which are all really appreciated.
