Minion Fun!!!! @ The Paper Players & Just Add Ink

Well, it has been a very long time between posts here, so I thought I would combine two of my favourite challenges this week to create a card for our DD (who loves all things animated).  She has just celebrated her birthday, as well as obtaining a mentoring position in her chosen field, so she has lots to celebrate!

I have used The Paper Players challenge for the outside of the card:-



& Just Add Ink's inspiration challenge for the inside (as well as those gorgeous colours):-



& here is a close up of those little minions :)


I used the the Pop N Cuts Base & Dress Form Dies to create the card & various punches, dies, fussy cutting & crystal effects to create the minions.  My favourite component is their hair - which I created using some bristles from an old paintbrush!

I was inspired to make these mini minions after seeing Helen's awesome big minion here.  :)

Thank you to the Design Teams at Just Add Ink & The Paper Players for the fantastic challenges!
