Birthday champagne

Hello lovely people,

We have a new challenge for you at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...for a male or female
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiment Designs

This was an easy choice for me; girly cards are my favourite because I love using pretty floral papers, pearls and preferably a hefty dash of pink!

I wanted to include some champagne glasses on this design and was struggling to find something I really liked but went for this digi in the end and I rather like it.

I added little liquid pearl dots for the bubbles...don't they look cute?

I am very sad to report that this is the last of this beautiful soft hessian trim...well, I have a teeny bit left to stroke!

  2. I love these papers, great layout, love the use of the frilly square on a square card. That hessian is fab, lovely card

  3. Just catching up- I love this and yesterdays card too - the image is gorgeous x

  4. Oh Kat, I adore how you bring even the simplest image bursting into life with your stunning colourwork. Just look at that bow! Gorgeous card sweetie, love it. Hugs xx

  5. Oh wow, this is so gorgeous! Adore the champagne bubbles, great idea. Love it!

    I love both girly and masculine cards, but would probably go with the latter because I do love doing the 'grungy Tim Holtz in various shades of brown' thing, lol.
    Having said that, I don't personally consider them to be a male-only thing, seeing as how I love the style, and last I checked I'm not male (I think, lol).

    And then the next day, I can't get enough of pink, shabby chic stuff... Maybe I'm just fickle ;-)x

  6. Wow this is so gorgeous I love the layout and classy design!

  14. LOVE - LOVE - LOVE this one Kat (don't I always love ALL of yours?)... but wowwww to the shapes you sew so perfectly around.... then your paper choice... and the wonderful layers!! The champagne flutes are the final finishing touch for me - particularly with the pearly bubbles!

  15. Kat this is fantastic, love the pearl bubbles and the bow looks so real, amazing colouring. I so need those papers too.
    I hope you are having a nice weekend xxx

  16. Kat this is a beautiful card. Your colouring of the champagne glasses is exquisite - perfect bubbles - such a clever idea. I also love your layout and those wonderful papers you have chosen, and as ever, your carefully chosen embellishments look amazing. Shame about the trim but it gives you the chance to find something equally gorgeous to buy!

  19. Hi Kat, I have just found your blog after searching Mr Google for a champagne Digi I have but couldn't remember where from! Your card came up, so here I am! Your card is beautiful and I love the bubbles!
    I've just made a coffee so whilst hubby is watching the footie, I am going to have a leisurely look at your blog. Your work is beautiful.
