Cute Birthday Card

Here's a cutie. Simple but I love these colours. I made this for a little girl who is 10 but is just starting out and loving the world of scrapbooking. I hope it will inspire her a little. This paper is from a previous post "Bundeena" layout. They are My Mind's Eye - So Sophie and My Mind's Eye - Alphabet Soup. It's gorgeous and not colours that I would usually choose but every time I use them I love the result. I punched flowers and used them back to back and folded the petals give them a 3D look. I used twine in the button holes and lots of foam dots. Hope you like it. :)

Quick Card

Here's a card that I made for my friend and her family as they have just moved into their new home.
I love the stamp set, it's called Butterfly Garden by Pink Paislee. I thought it was nice to put the 3 dimensional butterfly on the front as if it had "landed" in it's new home. The little tag was dyed with tea and coffee and I used cotton twine to tie it on. The border punch and the pearls up in the corner made all the difference I think. You can view it on my You Tube videos to the right hand side of this page (just click on them) and the videos relating to this card are numbers 23 and 24. Have a look, maybe you will find some inspiration. It's a great stamp set to have, I have used it many times.

Happy creating!
