I attached alphabet chipboard letters onto blue card which I ripped to give a snow effect, I added doodling, ribbons, and a brad with a rub-on greeting on it.

I started by cutting the large 16 out of mickey mouse paper with my cricut then I matted it on holographic card. Then stuck the numbers onto some bright yellow firework paper. Mickey mouse eyelets were used down the edges. I wrote the name with stickers and finished it all of with some black gems.

I covered a card blank with patterned paper. From gold card I cut a heart shape and glued this to the base card. From pink paper I cut out a skull & crossbones, edged it with black ink and attached it with 3d foam on top of the heart. I spelled out the recipients name with alphabet stickers for a personal touch.

Scrapbook Page
It is a page I made of my granddaughter, using a nestability die for the mats, and a quote, flowers and ric rak to embellish. I cut her name from a QK Revolution alphabet set called Lemonade (I think!).


I decided to use the challenge to make my Brother's Birthday card. His hobby is photography so I decided to use an image from the Card Toonz Professional Nuttyness CD. My little Owl photographer is decoupaged up six layers, glittered slightly and mounted onto Nestabilities mats. I used a Sizzix alphabet to personalise the card with his name.
