I had such good fun making this card. My friend Jo's hubby asked me to make it for her birthday from him as she's off to Vegas with the girls for a long weekend away:
This is the photo he gave me to base the card on (!):
I'm sure they're lady boys! Anyway onto the card, this is for a few challenges, over at Papertake Dawny is asking us to 'fake it', La-La-Land Crafts want to see at least three different embellishments and Stamp Something want us to use our favourite embellishments.
Well the sign was made with fonts on the PC and Quickutz alphas, I cut the shape partly with a labels Nestie and then pinged my favourite gems around the edge to look like the Vegas lights. The welcome part is simply Doodlebug rub-ons on punched stars.
Miss Anya is coloured with Copics and sat on a wall of DCWV paper and a ribbon trim with my FAKE bow:
I've said many times I'm rubish with bows, even with my bow maker, so I held the ribbon in place and stitched it before sewing (yes sewing!) on a couple of buttons too. Finally I have to show you the inside, I'm pretty sure Jo won't mind.
I'm looking forward to seeing the photos and having a catch up when she gets back. I've bored my boys stupid this morning, we went on a trip to Hobbycraft and The Range, Both very much dressed in blue and looking all boy - for those of you who are new to my blog, our last trip there involved Blake being mistaken for a girl.
So a quiet afternoon is planned before chaos and mayhem resumes!
