Quixotic Challenges #1 - Birthdays!

Welcome to the very first Quixotic Paperie Challenge! This week our theme is Birthdays, as our very own Elaine is celebrating her own today!

Just to remind you that we will be setting a new challenge each week and at the end of the month a prize will be given from all the entries from that month. So the more times you enter the more chance you have of winning! You can also combine this challenge with as many others as you wish and there are no restrictions on the stamps you can use.

So I hope you can find the time to join us!

My card today features one of the new releases from Ladybug and Friends and is aptly called 'Birthday Surprise' called and is available from Quixotic Paperie. She is coloured with prisma pencils. I didn't have any bling to match my colours so the adhesive gems are coloured with a copic marker to match!

The papers are Fancy Pants 'Summer Soiree'. I have made the bow using the Bow Easy which is available from Quixotic Paperie. Elaine sent us all one to try and if you look back at my cards you will see I rarely use a bow..why?? ..because I can't!!! Now, I have to say I made this bow after my first time using it and I love it...it stays in place and doesn't come undone as I am sticking it down. I am really pleased with how professional it looks! You might just be seeing a few more bows on my cards now! I have followed the sketch from this weeks Mojo Monday!
Thanks for stopping by this afternoon. I hope you find some time to play along this week and to celebrate Elaine is giving you all 10% off everything in her store until 8th November! So, if you have had your eye on anything, now is the time to get it!

Catch you all later, Judy x
