Another new Follower!! Betty from Germany!! Ich möchte Sie herzlich willkommen zu meiner Familie. Her blog is Bettys Handwerke. Yes, it is all in German, but that's not really a problem. Paper crafting is a pretty international language!! You can always try the translate button. At times it is highly effective, and when it's not it can be highly entertaining!!
Heart 2 Heart has another challenge. This one is Birthday By the Numbers. It made me realize that I don't normally go in for cards with numbers on the front, but that doesn't mean that I can't make it work. It's called a challenge for a reason!!
Here's my card and, as always, I'm keeping it Close to My Heart:
I wanted circles, but I don't have a good way of cutting circles right now, but hey, aren't those Elemental Dimensional Elements still available for $1.50 on Karen's web site?? Why yes they are - and they are full of circles!! (Where's that little emoticon that laughs?)
I also used the Color-Ready Canvas Alphabet (or, in this case, numbers) for the 1, 2, 3, and colored them with the new Alcohol Markers. Wow, did that ever work well!! That was definitely the way to go. Beautiful coordinating colors with just a few swishes of the marker brush.
I am also working on a One Hundredth Birthday card for a family friend. I should have it finished in time for this challenge. Wish me luck!! I really want it to be special. It's for a very special lady!!
