Cynthia on a birthday cake - Challenge 75

Here is my latest project which I have made for the OSAAT challenge this week. The challenge is Anything goes so come over and join in the fun, you also have a chance to see your creations in print this month if you join in with our challenges, see further down this post for details or on my side bar.

I was lucky to be sent this beautiful image from our lovely sponsor - The Stamping Boutique to play with this week.

I have made the base card following a template from Sheila Weaver on Joanna Sheen's website, its called a three panel card and was quite easy to make, template can be found Here

The backing papers I have used (white base with burgundy butterflies and burgundy base with white flowers on it) are from a 12 x 12 paper pad from Papermania designed by Claire Curd which I have had in my stash for ages.

The lovely image is called Cynthia on a birthday cake which I have coloured in with Copics, I have also glittered her wings and added a gem on the flower in her hair and glittered on the cake icing which I matted onto burgundy DP and then stuck to the front panel.

I then flipped the image in Word and printed it out and coloured in with the same colours and added glitter on the wings and a gem in the hair and mat and layered onto DP and stuck to the third panel. I have also added two Prima Esprit flowers with a burgundy gem in the centre onto the front and third panel.

I then cut a message panel and some backing paper to mat the message panel onto with my nesties, then cut 2 different butterflies with my spellbinders butterflies die and added clear gems to their wings and their heads.
