Whimsical in Pink

Welcome - thanks for calling by again.

I had to make a card for a one year old recently - as I don't actually know the child, I went with a whimsical card - and hope her parents like it!

I started with an offcut of pink card, which made a square card - not my normal to start with.

The ribbons I initially chose were not these, but by the time I had coloured the images, they definitely did not 'fit'!

The images are by (the now defunct) Layers of Color, from the set Rise and Shine.

I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils, but did not blend them - one day I will be brave enough to blend them on a card.

Love the expression on the face of the sun.

After I embossed the sentiment, and attached the ribbons, I then pierced and faux stitched the edges to finish the card.

I am linking this to:
Thank you for visiting - any comments you leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed.

Maxine, this is just darling and you won't believe it but I just used this stamp set two weeks ago to make a thank you card for a friend. I'll post on my blog soon so you can see because it is almost identical to yours!! Great minds, right!? Great card and so bright and cheery!! Blessings! (You're coloring is much better than mine though!)

This is a great card. The colors and graphicness will appeal to the little one and the design will appeal to the parents.
