Sorry I haven't posted in a while, we've been decorating .......... need I say more!!! Then of course I had to pay for my efforts and spent a few days nursing my back, so barely got to visit the craft room.
Anyway, today's card was made with no particular recipient in mind, but then when it was almost finished the little Bildmalarna girl reminded me so much of my youngest granddaughter that I decided to keep it for her birthday in May, and put her name on it accordingly.
I'm really loving making these shaped cards which are all cut using my Grand Caliber and XXL Go Create dies. I'm afraid I can't remember the name of the papers I've used, but the balloons were created using my new Whimsy dies, which I then stamped a sentiment on. I really LOVE the Whimsy dies, as they're so easy to release your paper / card from, unlike some that I own. The flowers were all handmade by yours truly, leaves are a Doo Hickey die, and the butterflies are all Martha Stewart punches.
Hope you like it, and as always, many thanks for taking the trouble to visit my blog, and for any comments you might care to leave.
