Flower Child

Hi everyone, it is hot here today! It was 102 when I picked the kids up from camp at one o'clock! Yikes!

I need a birthday card for my niece for July 15th, she'll be four. This image of Flower Child from the Designed2Delight digi store looks just like Elizabeth, so I had to use it. Funny thing though is that she isn't really a girly girl, she wants Thomas the Tank Engine trains for her birthday, but I think she'll like this card anyway.

I love this little girl's daisy skirt, daisies are one of my favorite flowers. I have potted Gerbera Daisies out front this year and they seem to be weathering the heat pretty well, with lots of water.


I used sketch #35 from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout. They are having a month long celebration for their first birthday. They post great challenges every week. This week we could pick any sketch from the past year, so I went with #35.

Here you can see the inside of my card, Party Time Tuesdays had a challenge to decorate the inside this week. I hardly ever do that, so I kept it simple and just carried over some of the scallops and dsp. Love the look, really finishes a card nicely. Have to remember to do that more often.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you are having a great week so far!


Card Recipe:
Stamps: Flower Child digi from Designed2Delight, sentiment from PTI
Ink: Printer, Palette Noir
Paper: GP110, Lemon Tart, New Leaf, MME patterned
Embellishments: copics, nesties, stickes, recollections brads, PTI ribbon, cuttlebug embossing border, EK success border punch

Awww!! Your card is just adorable. What a girl your Elizabeth...you ought to get her the book "Do Princess Wear Hiking Boots?" by Coyle. I think she's asking for the best present :)
