Kathy's Birthday Boy

Hi there, Kathy here today with my project for Ruth's  Funky Fifteenth challenge

I've used the free, limited edition paper that Anice very kindly provided for us this month - it matches the "Jovial Man" collection from the Papercraft Factory CD "Colour me Happy" so I've used a couple of designs from there too.

On this month's freebie you get the design I've used on the main panel of my card, plus a variety of sentiment labels, some stars and some funky arrows too
To make this card;
I printed a piece of the freebie paper to make the centre panel and matted this onto Kraft card.
Using the download and the crop tool on my pc I cropped one of the labels close to the edges of the design, then resized it to print out at about 12cms wide.  
This was then matted onto blue card
 Next I chose a couple of designs from the  "Jovial Man" collection ("Colour me Happy" CD). Using the workdesk facility in Funky Hand's Paper Factory software means you can really reduce the size of the paper you print and get teeny tiny designs like these.
For the stars I cropped the freebie page down and printed out the coloured stars, then used one of these as a pattern to cut some from the "Jovial Man" patterned ones
I made buttons from the same papers using my Craft Robo but I could just as 
easily have used punches. 
The stars and buttons were backed with bits of scrap card for strength and dimension
materials: Funky Hand papers, sentiment panel and stars, 
blue card, kraft card, green button twine

There aren't many days left now till the next "15th of the month" rolls around,  but you've still got time to get your own project made and linked to the blog - it would be lovely 
to see you playing along with Ruth's challenge .. .. 
Just remember you MUST use at least one Funky Hand product 
on whatever project you make - I know we keep saying it, but you'd 
be amazed how many people don't do it  - and of course that means 
they won't be considered when it comes to choosing the winner of that 
free download Anice offers each month :-(
The fabulous freebie makes it sooooo easy to join in even if you don't have any other Funky Hand goodies to use - so no excuse, really!
Well, that's all for this time, but do come back soon as Anice will be along in a couple of days 
to share her own Boys, Boys Boys project
Happy, Funky Crafting
