Hello there crafters!
Long time no seen ;) Im enjoying vacation here, sadly I cant brag about the stunning summer weather with a beaming sun so I wont...;) I hope I will get to enjoy it soon though.
Its sunday and my turn to host the inspirational post over at the Live and Love Crafts blog. As you all know by now we have been swooning in birthday celebrations for a couple of weeks now and today Im showcasing the last bday creation. Some of you may know that about the same time LLC was born the most adorable little baby girl (not that I am biased ;)) was born too, our little Ella. With this card we will wish her a first happy birthday!
Ive used the most cute little girl image I could find, isn't she just stunning? She is available via the Wee stamp store and is named Angie. OMG...my heart can really pound at the sight of a stamp I love and this made my pass out a little ;) lol! Angie is inked with my Copic markers. Im still going into the "zone" when Im inking. Poor family tries to talk to me and Im just mmmm-ing. ;) Its so out of my comfort zone but Im having fun! And without practice I wont get anywhere ;) I still have a loooong way to go but Im happy my inklings goes onto creations now so Id like to think there has been some progress.
These beyond gorge papers from Pion Design are part of my all time FAVORITE paper collection, the "Studio of memories". Just look at those lush flowers on that 6*6 paper I used! Talk about making my heart skip a beat. Ella has always been very into music and every time she hears a tune she starts digging. The big metal music note is the perfect addition for her card, I added some shabby pink embossing enamel to that and the other metal ornaments, such as the love charm, the metal roses and the lovely number one embellie I added close to the image. And of course...I just had to use another one of those utterly beautiful frames from Melissa Frances again. They are addictive!
I love that they are not that big, they fit onto a card really well. As always Ive added all the products Ive used with the Inlinkz gallery at the end of my posting.
Heres some more close ups:
