another card for Scarlett

this is another card for my grand daughter, Scarlett, who will soon be 5.

I used a decoupage sheet from docrafts, which is really little girly, so very appropriate

I matted and layered onto a peach card blank with a patchwork paper, matted the image onto gold mirri card, set at a jauny angle, then a peach bow under the topper, some lace with punched flowers under that, a few flowers in the opposite corner, and buttons in the other corners

and this is the inside, in co-ordinating paper, and an "S" made from apples.

a cheap wreath made to look pretty

this is a cheap wreath I bought ages ago, so decided it was time to do something with it.

I chose various colours of card from the docrafts pack in one of the goody bags,
then got out my urban stamps, mainly the script and the music ones [I did one for my sister who is musical] and stamped in sepia ink.

I then die cut using various dies and made flowers and flourishes, and cut out the bird

then put brads for the flower centres, tied a bow from ribbon, and attached them all to the wreath.

on your special day

I liked this decoupage image, so cut the trellis with a tonic die from lilac centura pearl card, and placed on a 6 x 6 card blank , with the image in the centre.

then I made some flowers with punches from the french lavender collection from docrafts, and cut some leaves out, and glued in the corners, then put lilac liquid pearls all around the outer edge of the card
The insert is a square of paper cut to size with a notelet for writing on, both from the french lavender collection

a card for my grand daughter

this is for my grand daughter who will be 5 in march, her favourite colour is yellow, hence the base card

the little meow papers were just right for this, so decoupaged it , then again so when she opens it, it is on both sides, then added another image inside 
used a bit of the pink fabric tape and a bow from the docrafts rose collection, and little meow backing papers, and a notelet to write on inside
