It's a girl!

I have made today's card for a girl at work who is leaving this week to go on maternity leave. She already knows she is having a girl so the colour theme was an easy one! It also meets with three of this weeks challenges. I used the sketch over at Papertake Weekly, spots and stripes which is the theme at Secret Crafter Saturday and over at PB this week they want to see soft and sweet!

The sweet PB image was kindly sent to me by one of my blogging friends and I coloured it in with my koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor. I also added glossy accents to the daisy centers and glitter to the butterflies wings. Cut out with my oval nesties and the out of bounds technique. The CS is coredinations and the papers from papermania. I used my worn lipstick distress inks to sponge ink around the edges of the paper and CS. I added a few little pearls to the outer corners to finish.

Well the weather doesn't look so good here today so I think I'll head off to my craft room! My OH is in bed as he's on nights, so he'll have some peace and quiet if I'm in there! Lol!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by to take a look at what I've been up to!


Hugs, Vicky ~x~
