Fab'n'Funky Challenges #175 - Birthday

Hi Crafters,

It's Wednesday again and that means a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky but first, head on over to the blog to see our winner from last week's fruity challenge.  We loved your great designs.

I predict a lot of love for our challenge this week!  The very talented Dawn is our host and she has chosen the theme of...


Simples!  I don't think this one needs any explaining!  Our sponsor is the totally awesome Mayzyart and the DT were so lucky to work with her fab images.  I used Maurine with Tea for my card.

I started with a piece of Coredinations cardstock and I embossed this several times to extend the pattern with an embossing folder that I received free with the last Crafter's Companion magazine.  I really like the flower and dotty patchwork pattern.  To reveal the core I sanded back using the Crafter's Companion Coredinations Accessory Kit.  The lilac ribbon was on sale at Hobbycraft a few years back and this is the first time I've used it.  

I used Creative Expressions crinkle paper for the bottom and then added half a doily coloured using the Twilight Sky ProMarker.  My cup was made from Spellbinders Tea Cups and I stamped the sentiment with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  The gems were affixed  by hand using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.  

I coloured Maurine with ProMarkers in Blush, Dusky Pink, Caramel, Cocoa, Henna, Ruby, Lipstick Red, Indigo Blue, Reef Blue, Twilight Sky, Polar Blue, Amethyst, Peony and Lilac.  I cut down some Hunkydory foam pads to attach her to my card.  I finished by adding some glitter to make stream from the tea cup.

I really hope you'll join us this week to celebrate someone's birthday.  The more the merrier!

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
