Happy 3rd Birthday Keiran!

I have made this card for my wonderful Son's Birthday on Sunday. I was originally going to make a Little Einsteins card as he absolutely adores the program, but I couldn't find an image I wanted to use. And as I was getting my embossing folders out to try embossing acetate, Keiran spotted this one and said 'that's my friend Mickey!!!' So that clinched it!

I embossed the folder (Mickey Celebrates - Provocraft) onto acetate, and card...not sure why I did it on card too at the time...then coloured the acetate image with Promarkers (Poppy, Black, Grass, Gold, Warm Grey 4, True Blue, Blender). I was playing around with it on the card and the acetate did this 'bubble' thing so I decided to go with it. I coloured the streamers and confetti on the card to give some depth and attached the acetate over the card, creating the bubble. I then followed the sketch at Pixie Cottage-Sketch/Happy Birthday challenge to pull the card together. I do hope too that it fits with LIM - Acetate challenge too...hope it's not too 'more' than 'less'! I'm also entering this into I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes and Passion for Promarkers - White on white

Anyway, that's it for today! I have Gemma, Jonny and baby Amelia over for lunch, then I have my first date since me and Keiran's Dad split up tonight...wish me luck! So the next time I'll be here will hopefully be tomorrow with my new LIM challenge, if I manage to get it made before work tomorrow...will be tight as I start at 9am!

Enjoy the sun but remember the sunscreen!

  2. Super card Lizy, I'm sure Keiran will love it, the effect of the three primary colour squares is very much in the 'Baby Einstein' genre.
