My gorgeous Goddaughter is three today! I can't believe how time has flown so fast, and she gets lovelier everyday.
I wanted my card to stand out from the pinks and purples of a littles girls birthday by choosing a red and blue colour scheme. The Cath Kidston star wrapping paper I have been meaning to use for ages. It is so lovely I couldn't bring myself to waste it wrapping up a present! (Note to self: must be stronger when it comes to paper......)
I have used one of my fairy stamp designs (as I am Thea's fairy Godmother), simply colouring it with my trusty pencil crayons. Personalising a card for a specal person makes it that extra bit special, and it's a great excuse to use my vast collection Doodlebug letters.
Collage is one of my all time favourite techniques and I have found that this circle stamp fits the bill briliantly, although patience is needed for all the petals! The two different compositions and mats also show the versaltility of the stamps.
I just need to make one now for my Mother in Law. Or should I leave that to my husband? He has been known to make a card with my stash from time to time....
