Today's card is the one that I made for my great grand daughter, Jenna's 3rd birthday, which was at the weekend.
I used one of Docraft's Simply Gorjuss stamps and LOTV patterned papers. I stamped the image first, onto a snippet of white card with black Memento ink, and coloured it with Promarkers. These little girl images all have eyes but no other facial features and I must admit that I added a tiny nose and mouth with a black fine line pen as I think they look much better with a "proper face". The two patterned paper panels were cut from snippets from an LOTV pad that came free with a magazine some time ago, almost all used now. I layered both of these and the stamped image onto some blue card, adding a little scalloped canopy to the swing. I stuck the patterned pieces to the white 5"x 7" base card adding some pink grosgrain ribbon. The stamped piece is fixed with thin foam tape. The birthday greeting is from LOTV, stamped onto another snippet of white card. I didn't want it to end up too big so I die cut it with a small Spellbinder scalloped circle die, this removed the outer black border and I just inked round the edge with a black marker pen for a bit of definition. I mounted it onto a plain die cut circle of matching blue card and and used thicker foam pads to allow it to overlap the stamped layer. To finish I added a little handwritten pink tab, and three punched daisies, shaped slightly with an embossing tool and with tiny blue pearls in the centers.
