Our youngest grandchild is turning 6 on Tuesday,so this card has all the things she likes to put on a card when she makes one here so there is spotty backing paper and ribbons. She is not too sure which is her favourite colour so she has both I downloaded the image from the net coloured the star of the wand and the sentiment with a gold glitter gel pen. Added a pink butterfly Brad and the middle of the bow is also a brad then I added the coloured gems so she should like her card then again at that age they are more interested in the present  😄

This weeks challenge at creative knockouts was to finish the inside something I don't do too often but it does finish of the card, the image I used was tango from sheepski designs

I made my own backing paper by copying the image making it a lot smaller then pasting it about 20 times adhered it to a maroon card used the same coloured card to cut the heart die and the tag, cut a white oval I coloured the image with copics then fussy cut it, Adhered to oval with foam squares

For the inside I used the same card as the front cut a large oval out of it so the white base card can either be written or stamped on  my sentiment on here has  been stuck on with washi tape so I can take it off so I can finish it off properly when I know who I will be giving it to or the occasion. I used a heart punch to cut the side edging

Our eldest grandchild Lucas is turning 19 this week, where did that go. His other Grandfather has got him into Golf, he really likes it and I have to say he is rather good at it and has been playing a few tournaments,for the golf club and winning, has even beat his grandfather a couple of times So his Birthday card had to feature Golf


So I played around with endless pictures of golf balls and all things golf  did the sentiments got them all into the position I liked  got the middle image off the net and not that you can see it but I cut a extra ball for the main image and the one below it also the hand on the top one I was trying to attach the main ball with a spring to make it wobble, but couldn't, so I attached foam squares instead  the smaller ones I glued

I think I need to buy a new camera my photo's are not too clear
