Happy Beerday!

Helloooo! Things are quite hectic here so just a quick post today, apologies for not being around much this week.

So here is my 2nd card as Guest Designer for July for Sweet Stampin Challenges. The challenge this week is "one for the boys". So c'mon and join in! The DT have done some really gorgeous cards this week to give you some fabbie inspiration.

I made this card for one of our friends. It's called Beer Peeps from Stamping Bella and I love the sentiment on it "Happy Beerday"! I coloured with a mixture of lyra and watercolour pencils. Because it had a lime in it, I decided it must be a Corona so I tried to colour it as such. I think this will be a useful stamp as hubbie and all his friends drink Corona when they get together. Papers are by Basic Grey. The star strip die is a Die-namics by MFT, the star is a nestie. I decided to "dress" the card by adding a Corona and slice of lime!

I'd like to enter this into:
Papertake Weekly- anything goes
Crafty Creations- boys to men
Simon Says Stamp- anything goes
Stamp with Stampavie- birthday

Usual close up. Hope you can see, I added Glamour Dust to the beer bottle to get the look of condensation and Stickles to the lime. I think you can still add glitter to a male card!

Do come on over to Sweet Stampin Challenge this week, there are 5 digital stamps from Fairy Dust Crafts on offer!!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Watercolour & lyra pencils; Copics; Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Dies (Dienamics & Nesties); Button; Pearls; Button twine (PTI)
