It's almost my granddaughter's 12 th Birthday...time sure flies!
In my Card today, Tilda is the center of attention in her softly muted summer dress...
perfect for a Summer Birthday Party
(click of photo to enlarge)
She finds herself surrounded with dilicate butterflies made with MS punches.
Several layers of DP was used to add texture.
The ribbon/bow is regular seam binding that I've colored using Walnut distress ink
by Tim Holtz.
The leaf spray is made with my Cricut and colored using an ink pad.
The sentiment is computer generated and cut using nestabilities.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.

Terrible Two's In Red, White and Blues

(click on card to enlarge)

Happy 4th of July weekend to you all! Todays card is an example of "Real Fireworks" ...a two year olds tantrums.
I love these two Digital images from Mo's Digital Pencil, I think they are absolutely adorable...
of course it's all about ones perspective, and I'm no longer the mother of a two year old...and I can't even imagine having Twin two year olds!

I used a clear unmounted stamp for the sentiment and attached it to a Cuttlebug die cut...the flower is also a cuttlebug die cut.  My friend Char made the little bird embellishment for me.

The images were printed out on Neenah's Classic Crest Super Smooth cover, and colored with the following  Copics;
B21, B23, B24, B26
R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
outlined with B000, B0000

I can't remember the hair color Copics I used.
