I have made this card for my granddaughter in laws' birthday, she is very keen on green so I hope she is going to like this.
All the stamps I used are by Indigo Blu and came free with a magazine recently, I can't remember which one.
I stamped the girl with black Versafine ink onto some light green spotted paper from a 6" Prima pad, I think that was also a freebie a long time ago. I used Promarkers and a gold gel pen to colour some of the elements in the design, and then trimmed it down using a deckle edge cutter on the top and sides and a lacy Joanna Sheen Signature die for the bottom. The background paper is from an LOTV pad, and trimmed with a deckle edge to fit a 6"square card blank. I added the narrow ribbon before fixing to the card. I wanted to brighten it up a bit so I stamped the flowers and leaves onto snippets of white card and coloured them bright pink with Promarkers and then fussy cut them out. I used a ball tool to slightly shape the petals and give a bit of dimension and then stuck them on with silicon glue. I stamped the sentiment onto the snippet of spotted paper left from the image panel and cut into three pieces and fixed the across the bottom of the card.
The young lady this is for has only recently married my grandson and as they have moved away this is the first birthday she has spent away from home, and he is unable to be with her as well, so I am hoping she has made some new friends to celebrate with.
As usual the little snippets I've used will get me through Pixies Playground gates.
