Hello everybody! How are you doing? I'm doing fine. We finally got some sun yesterday and today and we used it to go for a short walk around the town earlier. The temperatures are getting higher too, which is also nice. Looks like spring will come here soon. Can't wait! :)
My baby girl is turning one later this month (goodness, where did this year went?! O.o) and I wanted to make a special birthday card for her. I brought out my favourite maja design papers (HVALA Jana!) and the super cute Daphne with daffodil stamp from Whimsy stamps. I love this image and I thought it woud be perfect for my card.
Since I wanted a shabby chic and romantic look on my card I decided to colour the image with distress inks (pads). I also used some liquid pearls (made with Viva Decor paper pen) and real tiny pearls on the wings. It's not visible in the picture (boo hoo), but I also used Wink of Stella brush on the wings and headband. I just love the shimmery look.
I decorated the card with different flowers (most of them are from I am roses and the others are from my stash), a charm, lace and I also used 2 small gems on the die cut hearts. I also used different die cuts from Cheery Lynn, Marianne design, Little darlings rubber stamps ... The tiny butterflies were made with Martha Stewart punch.
I hope you like the card. See you soon. have a wonderful day! xx
