Today is a special day - it's Mo Manning's birthday and I thought it only fitting that she should have a card dedicated to her. Thanks to Mo's wonderful illustrations, crafters like me have the opportunity to become artists and I can think of no better way of whiling away a few hours than colouring up my favourite Mo images. So, a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY goes out to Mo and here's her card:
'Penelope's Party Wagon'
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, 'Material Girl' collection.
Well, Mo, you've done it again - another super image - so adorable. I could hardly wait to get my hands on my Copics for this one - and a flurry of pinks was just the thing. I had originally intended entering this card in last week's Charisma Cardz challenge but, unfortunately, for one reason and another (life being what it is!), I missed the deadline. So pink you got, Mo, and I hope you like it!
This image is also available pre-coloured, by the way - but please check Mo's Angel policy regarding her new pre-coloured images.
Having missed the Charisma Cardz challenge for which this card was originally intended, I have decided instead to enter Penelope into this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge, for which the theme is 'cute' (and she sooo is!) and also this week's Project Tuesday challenge, which was to 'incorporate hand-made flowers'. As you will see, Penelope is adorned with hand-made paper roses, which I love making because they're so easy. Take a look at this tutorial here, for easy-to-follow instructions. I have chosen not to distress or fold the edges of my flowers this time as I quite like the clean edges on this card.
Anyway, I've got to go and link up and then let Mo have her birthday card via her Facebook group.
