Christmas birthday

'Christmas birthday' was the theme for last week's facebook Sunday's with Santa (yes, I'm a week behind - hope to do a card for today's challenge later). We have a lot of family birthdays around Christmas, so it's good to have the prompt to make some in advance.

I've used one of my favourite Greeting Farm Anya stamps that is just right for a winter birthday, colouring the image with copics and mounting on a piece of red polka dot card. I've put diamond stickles on the edges of the coat to add a bit of sparkle. The stamp is for All that scraps Wednesday challenge: anything goes.

I followed the sketch for Mojo Monday 241:

I used black, white and red for:

Farm fresh Friday
Addicted to stamps 30: white, black and ?
Lexi 65: black and white plus one other colour
Anything goes 67: colour combo - black with one other
Paper crafting journey 9: black + one other colour

Papers are 7 gypsies life noir and adore. The sentiment was generated on my dymo letratag and mounted on to a die cut label. The crocheted flowers have been combined with a couple of craftime flowers, the larger one held together with a material covered brad.

This is also for:
