Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #186…Anything Goes

Hello there folks! I hope that each of you is continuing to stay healthy in your own little corner of this world!

I'm popping in today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #186, the theme is Anything Goes. I took the opportunity to make another birthday card. There never seem to be enough birthday cards in my stash.
General Project Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). It will be printed out and assembled prior to dissemination.


Digital Images Details:
  • Tea Cups can be found in Pattie's Etsy shop. This image was coloured in digitally using digital colouring and paper piecing. Credits include:
    • the lace paper used to digitally paper piece the middle teacup is from the Tea n' Lace Digi Papers set from Imagine That Digistamp.
    • I have used a textured paper to digitally paper piece the top and bottom cups and top and bottom saucers. This paper is from the Baking with Mom Ethereal Textures set from the CoffeeShop Blog. 
    • Then I used the same textured paper used in behind the lace paper on the teapot, for the middle tea cup and also for the middle saucer.
Digital Embellishments:
  • The flowers used as accents are from the Hello Aunty kit created by Correen Silke available at {Computer}
  • The tag shape used on the front as an accent is from Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper. It has been digitally paper pieced with a paper from the Tea n' Lace Digi Papers set from Imagine That Digistamp.
 Digital Images Details:
  • I repeated the Tea Cups on the inside just reducing the opacity of it so that the sentiment stayed readable over top the image.
Digital Paper Products:
  • The tea cups paper used for the background along with the purple gingham paper used as an accent are also from the Tea n' Lace Digi Papers set from Imagine That Digistamp.
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • The sentiments used on the front and the inside were created by Paulette from Create with TLC. I have recoloured the sentiment on the front to better suit the colours in my project. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

You have until September 30th to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is Anything Goes. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter three times per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules).

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget… Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Well guys, that is it for this one. Keep washing those hands and stay healthy. Hopefully, I'll see you again soon.

Until next time,
PS: Sadly, I have made no additional headway in sending out the papers from the 12 Days of Christmas. While the set has been sent to the 11 individuals who completed the full quest, I still have to send the papers out to those who only participated in certain days. For those of you remaining, your continued patience is appreciated. It is making me a little bit insane that I still haven't had the chance to get this completed but time just isn't on my side these days!
