Cuddly Buddly's Challenge 13 - "Big it Up!" add BIG Number or Letter

Good Morning Everyone, it does seem strange to be home its been such a busy few days and trying to get back to normal is taking time, and of course we went to pick up our baby yesterday and she was so excited to see us, but now shes feeling a little down and is limping a bit, not sure whats shes done and if it doesnt improve today a trip to the vets I think is called for. Anyway back to this weeks Challenge from Cuddly Buddly we want to see "A BIG Number or Letter" on your cards and its my turn this time to use Kim's own beautiful images and papers and I chose one of the "Eliza and Bro" images called "Birthday Girl" and created a card for our little granddaughter who will be the big "4" next year, you will find the image here in the Cuddly Buddly Webshop.
Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, then cut her out with Nestabilitie Die Labels 8 and then drawn around the same die to create the mount out of pink card. The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and one of three beautiful papers from Kim's "Cottage Garden, Poppy" digi paper Collection and you will find them here. The first one is a very pretty pink background with daisies on, and on top is a strip of pink card with the second paper a pink and white spotted paper. And with the last one which is a pretty lace pattern I have used one of the Cherry Lynn Doily Dies and stuck it down just under the mount going down the card.
I then wrapped a beautiful piece of white lace around the middle with a pink heart ribbon along the top and stuck it to the back of the first mount. I then positioned my image in the centre and created a badge Sentiment with a large number 4 on my computer in My Craft Studio graphics program and cut it out with one of the circle nestabilitie dies, then used a larger one for the mount. I did use some glitter on the number though it isnt to easy to see. To finish of Ive used some of the left over paper to create the rolled flowers in the top left hand corner which have been attached to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cuddly Buddly Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Big it Up" Challenge this week.
