You were born to Sparkle

 Its y granddaughters birthday soon and so far I have made two cards that I cant decide between so I might need to make anther to up the competition.

This is another new to me image from Mo's digital Pencil

Of course she comes with this wonderful sentiment. Sophie loves dressing up
and playing make believe and as I am Nanny I get to join in the games. Mostly with jewellery
hats, hair ties etc and characters.

I have coloured her with Copics combining Pink and Purple. A bit of silver on er tap shoes
so they click when she dances and glitter on the under shirts. Ohhh no I just noticed I forgot her beads so we will have to pretend they are pearls ok.

I finished off with my favourite these days running a strip of pink and silver washi tape down each side of the card then added dimensional tape behind the girls image to lift it slightly.

This next card is actually for CAS(e) the Sketch Challenge

Im not so sure Im happy with it but I had an idea and went with it
so will see how it sits for me and may try again if I have time.

I have gone Gold and Lilac. The Gold die cut has been cut in half then trimmed a bit
more to make it smaller. I thought it would be perfect for the Challenge. It is a die I bought from Papertrey Inks and have found myself struggling with it. Thinking I need to try watercolour.

Anyway back to this I have attached at the top and bottom of the card. Then added the beautiful lilac die cut 'Fabulous'. Felt it was looking a little too little in the centre so decided to blend so Distress Ink in an oval shape. Boy easier said than done, trying to line it up but got there. Blended softly then flicked a wee bit of water. Doesn't really show here.

My second card with the gold die cuts.

Again my second card with the gold die cuts

I have taken my inspiration from the sparkle
and the mix of pink and purple for
my top card.

Completely smitten with your little girl, thoroughly enjoying being jazzed up in her sparkly dress, glittery tap-shoes, feather boa and, of course, her pearl necklace! Exuberance to the max! My niece loves to play dress-up, too and as Aunty c...well, you know how it goes! Too much fun!
