Good Morning Girls, isnt this weather strange it went really cold last night then this morning the sun came out, but I can see quite a few grey clouds in the sky so I suspect we might be in for something later on. I had a lovely chat with my eldest granddaughter she was 15 yesterday and quite the young lady, Id sent her one of my home made cards and I wasnt to sure how she'd feel about it, anyway she thanked me for it and said that she'd taken it into School to show her friends, I was thrilled to hear that, and I also said to her that I was glad she liked it and thought it was cool to receive a home made card. So you can tell Im glad it went down well, Id hate to embarrass her.
Anyway the card Ive posted today is for one of our younger granddaughters Danu (shes the little girl in the photo below in blue), she will be two in August and of course this is one of Mo's gorgeous "Terrible Two's" and I think weve all come across little girls of two and their likes and dislikes, I certainly did with three girls. Anyway Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with the mega oval from the new Nestabilitie range of dies, Ive also used the scalloped one as well to mount her on. The sentiment was created on my computer and Ive used the smaller ovals to cut this out.
The card is a 8"x 8" white card mainly because the image is larger than normal, and it fitted better on the bigger card, Ive used several papers from my Nitwit downloads, and created firstly a layer of pink card with a pretty flowery paper on, and the second and third layers are in mauve and pink, Ive used one of the larger border punches on these then stuck them down the centre with a mixture of ribbon and cord this was wrapped around the card and stuck to the back.
The image was then stuck on top and the sentiment to the right hand side at the bottom. Ive created two flowers from some of the left over paper and then popped a pearl brad and silver spacer through the centres with a couple of charms hanging from the bottom one, before sticking them to my card Ive stuck a circle of punched out leaves and my flowers on top. There are three little roses on the sentimet to cover a rather large white patch and two heart gems at the top.
