Get Funky ! - Happy Happy Birthday
I haven't been posting lately as we have been enjoying a 'Goldener Oktober (yes I know, it's still September) here in southern Germany and I couldn't justify staying indoors in such great weather. My craft room is in the keller and nice and cool it is too, but we know that soon the temp will change and we will be shovelling snow soon enough! So we enjoy the sun for as long as we can.
Today's post is for the current Get Funky! challenge over at the Funky Hand website. Anice from Funky Hand provides a freebie backing paper to use with each challenge for participants who do not have Funky Hand papers. At least one Funky Hand product must be used in order for your entry to be valid. For previous submissions I have been using my CD 'The Funky One' but I thought I make a change and use the free paper for this challenge instead.
I loved the the paper as soon as I printed my copy. The colours are vibrant and the sunny colour combination made it easy to select a background as most of my cardstock stash matched the paper. I tried to compliment the backing-paper rather than hide it behind too many embellishments. The cupcake is from a piece of wrapping paper I bought (at,of all places; John Lewis') on a trip to the UK. I actually walked off a very long queue around christmas time to to get this paper and a couple others. That's the crafting obession at its best (or worst). You see wrapping paper, I see endless possibilities for cupcakes on cards and scrapbook pages :-)
The green ribbon, gems and pink paper are also from my stash and I die-cut the pink paper with a Tim Holtz Alterations edging die to add a bit of detail.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me a comment.
