The Outlawz (DT) Birthday Challenge

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another Birthday challenge at The Outlawz.  If you haven't joined this community group, please consider doing so... within 2 weeks the membership has grown to 190.  So nice to see some familiar South African faces too. 

As jy nie 'n blog het nie, kan jy nog steeds aansluit by die gewilde groep.  Jy sal sommer baie pret hê.  Dis 'n geleentheid vir jou om jou pragtige projekte met die hele blogland te deel. Jy sal nie spyt wees nie hoor.  Stuur maar vir my 'n epos as daar enige vrae is.

The challenge for you this week is to make a Birthday Card (it is the Birthday Challenge after all...lol) using Red as your primary colour.   Here is my DT card for your inspiration...

The image is a design of the super-talented Elisabeth Bell. I cannot remember with which set I received this, but I love this bouquet in the vase.  I coloured the image with my Faber Castell pencils this time, for a change.  The red spotted paper is from my W&M range of papers, love them!  The mustard spotted paper is what I've had for ages in my stash. Added some roses and included my pearl pins which I haven't used for a while.  The sentiment is from Happy Daze.

Added some dimension glaze to the image to make it pop a bit and to finish off some dewdrops and ribbon.

Thanks for popping around and leaving a comment, I really enjoy reading them and hope to see your card at The Outlawz.

Enjoy the rest of your week, I'll catch up with you all later. Sharon x
