Shy at first. Like getting and giving hugs, like my own company but like having 1 on 1 time with my friends. Not keen on big changes. Like to know what's happening!

Time for another challenge courtesy of Gill McCall at Creations By Gill M.  This weeks challenge theme is "Believe In The Magic" and there is a sketch to follow.  Details of the challenge and the sketch can be found in Gill McCall's Blog.

This is the card I made for this challenge:

I made this A4 card by using attaching 2 pieces of A4 white shimmer card with a narrow hinge on the inside of the card.  I cut a piece of 12x12 stripey pink, brown and white paper and covered the front of the card with it.  I cut a piece of brown card and 2 shades of pink card and matt and layered them together for the main image.  I used a Forever Friends adhesive sticker for the main image and placed this on the pink and brown card.  I attached this to the main card using 3d foam

I cut some more brown and pink card and matt and layered them together.  I printed the sentiment "Happy Birthday!  Hope You Have A Magical Day!" and attached this on top.

To complete the card, I stuck a pink adhesive gem on the bottom right hand corner of the main image and used Pinflair Glue to attach 3 stars on the left hand side of the sentiment strip.

This is a great challenge to take part in as the theme "Believe In The Magic" can be used for girls and boys.  Whether is a magical fairy, wizard or magician; the theme can be used for anyone who believes in magic!!

Have fun and don't forget to leave myself and the other design team members feedback.

Thank you and take care.

  1. Hi Lisa, what a pretty card! Love the pinks and browns.

    Forever Friends Sunday was started by Sarpreet as a way to use up her stash. I thought it was a good idea so I copied her. She also has Me to You Saturday, Penny Black Monday and Born to Shop Friday!

    I'm off to Gill's blog to see this challenge.
