Daring Cardmakers ~ Birthday Banners & Bunting!

It's time for another celebration dare over at the Daring Cardmakers

As we carry on celebrating our 7th Birthday anniversary with more prizes and guest designers this week's dare..'Birthday Banners & Bunting' is very kindly sponsored by Tea House Bridge.

Here is my card..

I have used one of the gorgeous small straight banners from Tando Creative, please see their website for a list of stockists. Tando chipboard is so versatile and will take all kinds of different medium. Here I simply coloured the bunting using Derwent Inktense Pencils and a little water from A sprinkle of imagination.

The gorgeous girlie is one of the NEW stamp releases from Stampotique Originals called Hazelheart. I stamped her onto coated cardstock and coloured using Copic pens.

To finish the card I added some washi tape and doodling with a fine liner pen and of course, the icing on the cake! The gorgeous embellishments from Tea House Bridge.

I hope you like my card. Please pop over to the Daring Cardmakers challenge blog to see lots more inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a great weekend. Happy creating, Gez xx
