girly girl

Happy Valentine's Day!

This is my first card as dt member on Crafts 4 eternity.

This week the recipe ingredients are:

1. the sketch

2. include chipboard

3. use polka dots

We do hope that you will join us.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

'ribbons': Belli Challenge.

'something cute': Stamp Something.

'dazzle us': Fussy & Fancy Friday.

'get out something old & use it': Our Creative Corner. I have used a daisy ribbon which I bought when I first started crafting.

'hearts': Stamp with Fun. I have hearts on the background paper and dress of the girl.

'colour challenge inspired by pinks, white and blue of photo': Stamp With Us.

I have spun the sketch on it's side.

Papers: Imaginisce ~ Perfectly Posh. I have also used a white polka dot Bazzill piece as the background to the image. Beneath that is a piece of pink polka dot cardstock, also Bazzill.

At the base of the card is a piece of blue polka dot cardstock, covered with pink lace. I have then hand sewn on some buttons and added the daisy ribbon lace.

Image: CC Designs ~ Swiss Miss Rosalie coloured with copics and I added some stickles. I've also added stickles to the edges of the papers. Click the photos to get a better view.

The chipboard 'girly girl' tag is also by Imaginisce. To cover the grey chipboard, I inked the edges with white ink and added some stickles.

Edited to add:

These gorgeous flowers arrived for me this morning.

They smell fabulous! Even Henry thinks so ...

Thank you for looking.
