Birthday bunting !

Good morning to you - hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend oh and happy Fathers day to all the Dads and grandads out there :)

Today I wanted to share with you a card I made for the fab challenge over at the catered crop. The lovely Linda very kindly chose this brooch I made as one of her top picks for the last challenge and asked me to join her and her amazing DT for their banners & bunting challenge.

They are sponsored by Birdie Brown digital stamps who, so very kindly, treated me to an image to use. How cute is that clown (you can find it here) - thanks Torico it was a joy to colour and create with :)
I coloured the digi stamp with my promarkers because I wanted a bright, strong, vivid colour and I am happy with the result - I wanted to add highlights with a white gel pen - especially to the balloons - but forgot so I will add them at a later date !

My bunting was made with scraps of card and I left it blank with a view to adding a name when I give it. I inked the edges of the bunting with some brilliance ink and it has given it a lovely sparkly sheen.

The DP is EP summer days - I just love this zingy, happy paper collection - it always makes me smile to play with it !

Thanks for stopping by - don't forget to check out all the amazing cards and projects over at Linda's catered crop recipe swap x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Send a smile for kids challenge - Birthday fun for kids
Aud sentiments challenge - Sentiment for a kids birthday
Crop stop - Add banners & pennants

Thanks for visiting today - hope you get some crafty time today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
