Birthday Wishes for Rosella

My children are currently at Rosella's birthday party.  I decided that whilst Rosella is such a beautiful name the chances of getting badges, mugs or anything with her name on would be limited and probably non-existant unless you make them yourself.  Having posted my dream sign on the previous post I started thinking what I could do beyond just a card with her name on.  Also one of the greatest things about being a demonstrator is that not only do you get all your stash at a  fabulously discounted rate you also earn lots of free stuff and don't always have the time to use it and so I decided to use up some of my retired as well as current supplies on this sweet little girl's birthday and make her a sign to hang in her bedroom.

A sign, I hear you cry!  Yes a sign because once opened she will be able to remove the bottom portion and it will turn into a sign with her name on because I used the perforator from our cutting kit to enable this to happen and attached a ribbon through eyelets on the inside of the card as you can see below.

I think it's kind of clever and I'm really hoping she likes it. Report back from Olivia today who has been to panto practice with Rosella.  She told Olivia "Your card is fantastic!" Good news!
The rest of the card is fairly simple and I've used the current Brights DSP stack to stamp the balloons and cut them out and attached them to stamped images on the card base allowing the strings to remain in tact.  Being a very girly, funky girl, Rosella that is, I've done a 'pink' job with sparkly rhinestones and dazzling diamonds glitter.  Rub-ons have been used for the sentiment with the spritzer tool and my own 'smudging' to finish it.

Now whilst I have used chipboard before I've not really covered it with dsp before or glitter so this is my try something new for a challenge on Shelli's blog.  I've also used my new crimper again and I got it straight this time remembering a tip from the lovely Pam Morgan at Convention; start to run the cardstock through a little then reverse slightly before you send the whole piece back through the crimper.

Have a great weekend and imagine that your only trouble this weekend is to browse the sale-a-bration brochure and decide which set you want to earn next!
Hugs Zx
