Australia Day Birthday

Happy New Year!!  Wow it has been a while, I can't believe I haven't made a card in so long!  Well when I saw the challenge at Scrapbook Fantasies I just had to join in. I'm using a digi stamp from Make it Crafty and a card sketch from Mojo Monday.

I had a lot of fun with this image since not only is it for Australia Day, but my Mum's birthday too - both are on January 26th!  I coloured the image in traditional green and gold and the girl wears gumnuts and eucalyptus leaves in her hair and dress, so I added a little gold stickles for shimmer.  The background looks really pink here, but it's actually red and the velvet ribbon is a pretty green.  I wanted to add some red and blue from our flag too.

I am going to join in with the following challenges:

  1. Party Time Tuesday - Party theme
  2. Cuttin' and Stampin' - Anything goes with something new (the digi image)
  3. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Make it girly
