The Busy Little Girl Card
Two posts in one day - for me that's quite an accomplishment : ) I thought I'd just get this card posted tonight because we are going off on a jaunt tomorrow - the weather forecast is good.
So here she is, and yes, Julia, I went with the pink but teamed it up with the pale coffee colour which seemed in keeping with the vintage theme.
I found some card candy that picked up the colours of the dress and, another first for me, I spritzed the coffee coloured seam binding, tinted it a little with pink distressed ink, and left it trendily crinkled.
The matting layers are made up of a coffee & cream card, design paper covered in tiny pink, cream & coffee daisies, and cream pearlescent card, all matted on to a Kraft base. The very pretty DP is punched along the edge on the front, the inside and also on the back.
And that is it - I almost put a flower on the bottom left corner but decided against it because I like the simplicity of the card as it is.
That's me for tonight - time for bed, methinks.
