Here come the girls !

I had an order for some cards from a lady at work and they're all for little girls. I was dreading making them as I'd not got a clue what to do. My mojo has been somewhat lacking of late, and as cards for 'little people' aren't really my forte I thought that I would spend most of the time looking out of the window ! Anyway, I managed to dig deep and I'm quite pleased with the first two I've made.

I've used a Mo Manning image for all of the cards and shaded them with ProMarkers. I cut this image out using Nestabilities Labels 3, sponged some DI around the edge before removing the die. The tulips are from a Wendy Vecchi set and I've stamped the flower head onto card that I've blended Wild Honey DI over and the stalk and leaves onto card that I've blended Shabby Shutters DI over. The text stamp is also from the same Wendy Vecchi stamp set.

The number is made using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzlie die and I've blended DI over it and then covered it with Glossy Accents. The border punch is a Fiskars.

I've used Nestabilities Labels 18 to cut this image out. The papers are My Minds Eye and a scrap piece from my stash. The border punch is a Martha Stewart and the die is a Marianne Creatable.

The number is made using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzlit die and I've done the same thing as on the first card with the DI and Glossy Accents. The frame is a die cut using the Tim Holtz Tag die and the name is done on my PC.

Well that's 2 down, 2 to go !
