Although it's the afternoon of January 31, here in the USA, it's already February 1st across the pond. I'm here with the Design Team from the Classic Challenge Blog as we open the February edition. Be sure and check to see if you were a winner in January.
Our February sponsor is All Dressed Up Digital Stamps and I've selected Country Girl for my Design Team Card.
Isn't she the cutest with her floppy hat and yellow flowers!
To make today's card, I sized the image to just under 3" tall and added my Happy Birthday sentiment to the right of her.
After printing, I used my Copic markers for coloring. I used Gina Marie Designs Nested Scalloped Stitched Rectangles die for the decorative edge on the completed image.
I selected the yellow patterned paper and the coordinating blue card stock 2" strip. After securing each to the A2 card base, I added the Country Girl image. I tied the blue metallic string around the top and made a small bow.
While I thought I was finished, I wasn't pleased with all the 'white space' above the 'Happy Birthday'. So I grabbed the scrap strips off the printer table and added a fish tale cut to the ends, then trimmed to properly fit in the open area. When satisfied with my arrangement of the little tags, then I secured them to the card. Much better!
Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
