ACN: Happy Birthday!

by - March 11, 2013

Hi Peeeps!!

Hope you all are doing great!!
Well i know it has been a while since i have posted. Quiet a few posts are up next :))

And its time for the March Challenge : CHALLENGE # 5 : Birthdays! at A Creative Need!

I have used the image: Daffodils from ACN.
And my card is completely inspired by the below inspiration card by Julie Ebersole for CASE Study Challenge #131 at Case Study!

Awesome aint it!!!

And here's my card:

I chose the Kraft base for my card. And I have doodled it with a white pen :). And this time i am not complaining the numb fingers! ;-)). Here's the card in another angle!

For a twist, i have painted the white CS at the center with all the colors in the inspiration pic, using water colors (Well i know i still need to improve my self learnt skills in painting!) and have kept the image in white. 

I have outlined the image with the complementing colors and also with the white border with the sentiment - "Happy Birthday"! I know this gives it a rather un-usual look :) But i am certainly liking it!

So peeps,  Join in the challenge and leave a link to your creation (card, journal page, jewelry, scrap page, art journal etc.). If you followed the CHALLENGE, you will be placed in the random draw for 2 digi images!  If you are the lucky random draw winner AND you’ve used an A CREATIVE NEED image in your creation, you will receive a bonus image for a total of 3 images!
Don’t have any of your own ACN images yet? Pick up this month’s FREEBIE and use it for the challenge!!

This is the first time that i have used combined kraft+doodling+watercolors for my card and i am linking this card to: 'Take the Challenge' March 2013 at Faber Castell Design memory Craft blog
