Good morning to you all! I am back safe and sound from sunny Texas. We got back yesterday about lunch time. Had a fab time it was so nice to have some hot weather, funny how people there complain about the heat but we loved it! We didn't do too much just relaxed with our friends, had a couple of trips out and went to a casino in Louisiana for a couple of nights. Just trying to catch up on everything now before we go down to London for four days on Friday!
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme for this challenge is Girl Power. Here is my card:
I chose to do a 'Magic' card following a tutorial by Marianne here. This cute little girl is Spring Breeze by Crafty Sentiments and she is available to purchase here. I coloured her with my Copics, added some Viva Decor and Stickles. The papers are First Edition Isabelle they do have pink in but it is not showing up too much on the photo. I used Martha Stewart punch Cherish around the edges and then distressed them with some Spun Sugar DI. Dies used are: SB Grand Ovals for the image and Grand Scalloped Ovals, Cheery Lynn Anastasia border die, MB Pippi and Isabella Butterfly. The seam binding is Pink tulip from The Ribbon Girl flat backed pearl is from stash although I think that may have come from The Ribbon Girl too! Here is a picture of the inside:
The verse is downloaded from the internet and done on my computer and I have put a blank oval in for a personal message. I had such fun doing this card and will definitely be doing one again! We have a brilliant prize this week for the lucky winner:
