Papertake, Cupcake, Incy Wincy

Hubby asked me for a quick card for his friend who he works with. I've made a bright and cheerful card but the poor man probably doesn't feel much like celebrating - it's his 40th, nearly Christmas, and his wife has just asked for a divorce and sent him to live at his mum's.
I've followed the lovely sketch at Papertake Weekly for this card, although I'm probably cutting it a bit fine to enter seen as the new challenge will be up tomorrow - never mind, I had fun with the sketch anyway. The super cute image is a freebie from Karen's Doodles - isn't he gorgeous?! He's coloured with promarkers, with a little bit of sakura clear glitter pen here and there. The papers are Doodlebug with coredinations cardstock. Used the Martha Stewart scallop dot punch for the border strip, and added rainbow drops in the scallops - this looks quite nice in 'real life' but in the photo the rainbow drops look a bit strange! Sentiment is a Pink Petticoat download.
I'm also entering my card for the challenges at Cupcake Craft (celebrations) and Incy Wincy where there was a photo for inspiration - I've used the colours and thought the rainbow drops had the same 'marbly' texture.

  10. Cute card Lisa. Pity about your husband's friend but maybe this will cheer him up a wee bit. Love your cards for your Grandma. I know what you mean about easel cards - they are really easy aren't they. Only tried them recently and loved them so much I made a lot of them for Christmas cards.
