Barbara: Challenge #103 at The Crafty Pad

This is our first challenge at The Crafty Pad for 2011!! We took a little time off to recharge our inspiration. Are you ready for a new realease and a new challenge?  Our challenge for this week is;
Happy Birthday. Our DT has been given Debbie's new image stamp: Happy Birthday Meeces. Aren't they adorable? They were so much fun to create with. This is my card for the challenge:

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbons. If you participate, you could win this collection of Swiss Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Now that is quite a perk for your card embellishments. I am addicted to ribbon, I collect it wherever I go, especially if it is on sale :) This ribbon is so beautiful!

This card may look difficult but it is not hard to make. There are quite a few layers. The challenge is to coordinate all your paper and ribbon.  I colored the "meeces" with copic markers and added bling with a gelly roll pen.

Image: The Crafty Pad
DP and Ribbons: Target (that's why they all coordinated so well:))
Coloring: Copic Markers
Bling: Gelly Roll Pen
Embellishment: CTMH, colored with Krylon gold pen.

I hope that you enjoyed by card design and will leave a message and/or follow this blog.
Don't forget all that lovely Swiss Dot Grosgrain could be yours!! Happy New Year and may you always find time for crafting.
