Pattie's Creations Birthday Challenge #51

Morning all, hope you are all having a wonderful day today. It’s time for another challenge over at Pattie’s Creations and this time the theme is Birthday’s. It’s really funny that we are doing a theme on birthdays on this particular day, as it happens to be mine and my team mate Anne Temple’s birthday today. I just thought that was so funny…talk about a coincidence. Between my family and friends, I think that we have most of the days in August covered.  
So I decided to do a card for a friend of mine for this challenge. I used Allie and Wheelbarrow for it because I just loved how it was such a wonderfully calm and relaxing type of image. Just the kind of day that I’m hoping to have…doing nothing but my crafting.
The card is what’s called a fat page card. I just love doing these little babies because they are such a challenge to fit everything that you would do on a full sized card onto a card that is only 4X4. Now do you see what I mean about the image? Doesn't Allie just look all relaxed laying there beside that wheelbarrow full of flowers? You can just about feel the sun beating down on him.
I coloured the image with my Prisma Pencil crayons, oms and my green and silver metallic gel pens. I also used my gold glitter pen to fill in the insides of the flowers. The lilac swag and butterfly was something that I had in my stash as where the buttons. If you look closely at the lilacs you will see a nice bit of glitter on them. The flat backed pearls are from Reflections and the pink and clear rhinestones are by Deco. The purple cs is by Bazzil, the pink polka dot dp is from BoBunny and the pink rose dp is from my local dollar store (sorry no name with it). The green dp is by SU. The sentiment on the tag is a freebie that I got from Digital Doodling.
I used the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces for my project.
Now it’s your turn to show us what you can do. Just remember that our rules state that you must have a digital or stamped image on your creation. It doesn’t have to be a Pattie’s Creations image, but we sure would love it if it was. To check out our challenge and the rules just head on over to Pattie’s Creations Challenge Blog. While you’re there, check out the incredible creations that my teammates have come up with and if you can, leave them a little love...and maybe some birthday wishes for Anne (even if they are belated *laughing*).
Thanks for looking….Charlene
