I was delighted when Wendy over at Paper Crafting Journey asked me if I'd like to do a guest designer spot for their latest challenge 'For a Girl'!
My first GDT and the sponsor this week is the fabulous Kenny K, how could I say no!
I got two fabulous images to work with and this card uses Sweet Melissa!
I cut her out and coloured her with my promarkers: pale pink, pastel pink, soft peach, sky blue, cool aqua, duck egg, rose pink, dusky rose, buttercup, lemon, canary, mustard, gold and blush.
The papers are primarily from Cardmaking and Paper craft Magazine, with a little from crafts beautiful thrown in and it's all layered up on textured sparkly card from papermania.
I cut a flourish with my sizzix dies from the same card and stamped a flower image and the sentiment from Skipping Stones Design.
Then I coloured in some petaloo flowers with my promarkers (mustard and pale pink) and layered them up adding a button. Punched butterflies with my woodware punches, in card and paper scraps left over from the main body of the card and finally, added some pearls to finish it off.
Thank you to the wonderful DT over at Paper Crafting Journey for letting me join them this week! I had a lot of fun with this card! And good luck to everyone entering the challenge!
