There are two card designs here that I couldn't resist posting in response to blog challenges that I came across today.
The Graphics Fairy. (Check out the site, and you'll discover an absolute treasure trove of printable digital images that can be freely used in crafts.) I saw the image, and was sure that it would work really well on a feminine birthday card. I love the vibrant pink and lime green colours which I have embellished here with quilling strips using a husking technique to add some movement and texture to the fairy's skirt. Look closely, and you'll see that I have added a little quilled heart to her 'flower hat' as well!
Creative Accents 'For the love of chocolate' challenge that I make no apology for posting it here again!
The background picture is a photo which I took last February of some lovely Valentines chocolates with confetti scattered underneath. Next to it, I have added some quilling, comprising chocolate coloured swirls and two hearts made out of coiled, crimped strips. Happy Valentine's Day!
