Ismaki Challenge - Happy Birthday Bethany!

You may well be thinking, "I'm sure she said she was going away...." and I can confirm that you are right! I'm posting this on Thursday afternoon and if blogger is behaving, this should be appearing on Sunday morning!

I made this card following this weeks Ismaki sketch. The only problem is, I can't really enter it as I forgot to add the sentiment which is supposed to run down the right hand side of the card! Whoops!

I have been after this image of Martha for ages, ever since Kerry unveiled them on her blog. Lucky for me, Sam included a great stack of them in the images she sent me this week!

I coloured her with ProMarkers and mounted onto a (doctored!) Nestie rectangle. This panel was then mounted on 3D pads onto DCWV paper and Core'dinations CS, which in turn was mounted onto a top fold card blank. To finish the card off, I added Poppicrafts ribbon and flower and a wooden #3 which I coated in sparkly hot pink glitter. As the title of the post suggests, I made this card for my friends little girl, Bethany, who turns 3 this Sunday. Kerry's cutie pie image was perfect for the occasion!

I should be back Monday evening and I look forward to catching up with all your blogs then!

Lots of love,

Pin It
