No Flowers

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Cards und More.
This time we would like you to make a project -

Without Flowers

Now that suggests lots of things to me, men's, children, but I went with a clean and simple design using a LOTV stamp.

This is probably one of my favourite techniques and I have used it quite a few times, well as recently as Saturday actually. Basically it's a 6 x 6 white card base with a square of patterned paper put under an aperture. This time I used a circle and embossed the 51/2"square with a large dot embossing folder. This was mounted on pads to leave a 1/4" border around the card.
Rosie with parcels was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured using Copics as follows:-
Hair - Y21,24,
Skirt and shoes - YG10,13,17
Top  and socks - RV
Cape - Y00,YG00, 02
Skin - E000,00,11 R20

The parcels were paper pieced using scraps from the same Nitwits collection as the background paper.
Rosie was fussy cut and glued to the embossed card. The greeting from LOTV was stamped on a strip of white card with a V cut in the left and then slipped under her feet.

I shall enter the following challenges with this card:-
LOTV - Happy Birthday
Ribbon Girl - Lovely Lili, Anything Goes
Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Favourite Technique
CAS on Sunday - A birthday to die for
