Birthday Challenge at Crafting by Designs

Please excuse the super quick post from me today - my youngest is poorly! I'm scheduling this Tuesday evening while he naps, I think it may be a long night.

Anyways, while he rests, I've made a card using Whimsical Going Somewhere Girl AlishBA from The Octopode Factory. I love Lily's images and we are delighted to be sponsored by her this week at Crafting By Designs - why not show us your birthday creations to be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous Octopodes of your own.

I have used a Halloween paper pad, Oct 31 by Fancy Pants Designs to create this card. It's layered up with black pearlescent paper on a black 6x6" card base. I've coloured the image as always with Promarkers and matched the papers to the turquoise and purple colours of the image. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards as is the purple Candi corners. I've finished with a black seam binding bow, rolled roses and black pins.

Thanks for looking, I hope you'll join us this week at Crafting by Designs.
