Little Girl Birthday

Welcome - thank you for visiting - I do appreciate you calling by.

Our Grand daughter is about to turn two, and this is the card I made for her.



I love this image from Bugaboo Stamps, Summer Peek Flower Pot, which was one of the first freebies I ever downloaded.


I coloured her with chalks, then edged the card with worn lipstick distress ink and doodled faux stitching with a sparkle gel pen.


I added some Kindy Glitz to the flower centres for some added sparkle.


The sentiment was gold embossed, cut with a ribbon tag die and sponged with worn lipstick ink before removing the die, and mounted with a red gingham ribbon.


For added colour, sparkle and texture I stuck these adhesive strips of glittered card across the bottom.  I was given a packet of four of these strips some time ago and do not know where they came from.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.
