I'm posting just a little earlier this week because of what's going on over at Moxie Fab! This whole week they're having FUN challenges going on that YOU can get involved with because of World Card Making Day on Saturday, Oct. 6th! Are YOU doing anything SPECIAL that day? Make sure you check over at Moxie Fab for all that's going on! http://www.papercraftsconnection.com/blog/2012/10/countdown-to-world-card-making-day-4-days-left/#comments There's LOADS of FUN to be had by ALL!!!!!!!!
Today, Moxie Fab is asking for Birthday Cards! So, here's one I made!
Since I have been working on Card Design lately, here are the elements I used: According to the Card Design Handbook,
I used Movement/Flow for my Composition! Notice how your eye travels from one thing to the next; from the lady to the flowers to the sentiment.
Just a little more about this card---This is a card I made awhile back for our daughters birthday. Back when she was into Barbies! (I've never posted this card anywhere before this.) Of course, there aren't any Barbie stamps this size...maybe little stamps for kids but, not for Adult stampers! So, I went on a hunt to find some that LOOKED LIKE Barbie! I found this lady, "Gina" over at B Line Designs! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE these types of stamps! They take me back not only to my Barbie days but, the days when I'd sit & doodle. Drawing pretty ladies in fancy clothing. (I would have LOVED to have been a Fashion Designer!) I STILL get into matching up clothing with jewelry etc.; maybe, I would have better been a "Personal Shopper!" Either way, I ended up being what God called me to be! A Wife & a Mother and I'm QUITE HAPPY with my choice!
I guess I got a little off track there, huh? But, the rest of the card was made with DCWV paper, Prima flowers, Rhinestones in the middle of each flower, colored with alcohol markers, Walmart ribbon, Dick Blick Colored Pencils with Gamasol, the sentiment is by SU- Vintage Labels, & Souffle 3-D opaque Pen for the necklace & earring.
If you like the idea of "Barbie" looking cards, believe me there are MORE to come in the future!
Here is where I'll be linking this card:
Jump in & join in the FUN!
HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!!!!!
