Quixotic Challenge Blog First Challenge

Today is a special day, it is the first challenge from the Quixotic Paperie Challenge blog, and it is Elaine’s, the owner of Quixotic Paperie, birthday.

So the theme, as chosen by Elaine, is ‘Birthdays’

For my birthday card I’ve used the lovely Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Moonlight Whispers – Francesca with the My Mind’s Eye Wild Asparagus Papers and some ribbon jute.

I’ve coloured the image with Primacolor pencils and sansodor.

The hearts are from the great wooden shapes range Elaine has in stock here. I’ve punched a hole through the large heart with my crop-a-dile and painted the hearts with white crackle paint then painted over with Shimmer Paints Gold Glimmer Blingz and Wed Wagon.

Happy Birthday Elaine
