Peneope's Party Wagon

Challenges: Mo's Digital – inspirational photo

Creative card – girly

Sweet Stamping – favourite stamp or image. ( I love all Mo’s, she makes it so hard to choose!!!!)

Secret Crafter – what are little girls made of…(pretty frocks , esp., pink ones! LOL.)

Crafty Cardmakers - birthday.

The main pink background is a gorgeous digi paper from Cardmaking and Papercraft and I have used a zig-zag cutting blade around the edge of the white card base. I also ran some white card through my cutter using the same blade to get the almost ric-rack like zig-zag strips. These lie on top of the 3 plain, but suitably vibrant, coloured card mats beneath the image. For her party hat, I have paper-pieced the green spotted sections and the ribbon using a freebie digi from DoCrafts. As it was a digi, I rescaled it to make it more compatible with the size of the drawing and I then added shading to it with my Promarkers.

Now for this totally brilliant image called Peneope’s Party Wagon, (as drawn by Mo of course!) of a young girl all dressed up with somewhere to go. As I see it, Penelope has got all dressed up in her favourite outfit – all pink and flouncy, and as pretty a dress as every little girl should have in their wardrobe. She sets off for her party having been so excited all week. She had festooned her little cart days ago especially for the occasion, as she knew she would need it to transport her remarkably large present. She had chosen the wrapping paper & ribbon for the present herself on last week’s shopping trip, having found a perfect one in her favourite colours. Mum had quite sensibly taken over at that point and neatly wrapped it herself so it was done properly. - I do hope she remembered to take a card too…. LOL. The whole image has been coloured with Promarkers.

There you go, a story to go with my creation today!!! Hope you all like my card.
