Any age calls for a celebration

Good day

Can't believe October is almost done and dusted. This is my last Tuesday as Guest designer at The Outlawz Colour challenge. Always a sad moment, but most definitely not the last time I'll take part in their lovely colour challenges with interesting twists. This time Penny has chosen this lovely inspirational photo. When I saw it at first, a male card came to mind. But then I had a birthday coming up and the lady just love red. I played with a image of Squigglefly, that I have won lately. Such a sweet image and it just give you the impression that any age calls for an celebration. It is not very clear on the photo, but I used chalk on the white for distressing and then used my scalpel for the edges of all the squares. The square cut is from Sizzix and the border is from Spellbinder, the swirl is done with my favourite Marianne's design. I used some foil on the confetti and added rhinestones on the border.

Challenges I used as inspiration are:
Card mania #58 - Buttons
Crafty Cardmakers #126 - Cut it out.
Incy Wincy - Buttons and bling
Love to create # 139 - More than one fold
Squigglefly #43 - Frame it
Aud sentiment #118 - Any 2 to 3 word sentiment
Lacy Sunshine #45 - Include a hat

Thank you and hope you'll come and join us at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour challenge.

Hugs from Africa!
