Party at your own pace!

Hello lovely people,

I heard a little rumour that the DL size card may be making a comeback and I have to say that I'm not sure I'm into it as I always found it hard to design on this shape card...

...but I'm always up for a challenge so thought I'd give it a go for my Dies to Die For DT card this week.

I've combined the tortoise from one super cute Stacey Yacula MFT stamp set with a balloon from another to create my image and gosh, it felt like so long since I did any colouring!

I tried out adding a little white gel pen for highlights and really like how it turned out :-) There is also a tiny touch of glitter on the party hat pom pom.

One of the major drawbacks of this size card is that all my papers are 6" square and therefore not big enough for a DL card, so I had to get creative!

You may also notice the return of stitching on this card! I realised I had missed doing it so will be using it again on some of my designs :-)

If I've tempted you with any of the lovely supplies I've used then you can go straight to the individual products via the links below or just pop over to Dies to Die For and have a little browse around!

Thanks for popping in and I hope you have a great day!
