'BEST FRIENDS!'




















Good evening
I am excited to say that I am now a proud member of the Cuttlebug Spot DT and here is my first card. Nilda asked us to make a card using a stamped and coloured image. Now this was a big challenge for me in itself as I have never done it! I found this cute Precious Moments image download for free on the internet and 'coloured' it with promarkers. As you can see I need lots more practise! In an attempt to hide my naive colouring skills I used my inksentials opaque white pen and polka dotted the dresses and shoes! The card is 6x6", pink backing paper from my stash. The frame I made to fit round my image in DS and is the scalloped square frame from Accent Essentials cart cut in white card and cuttled with Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then cut a smaller sized frame in pink sized to make a 'mount' within the frame. I gave the little girls a pearl necklace and bracelet. added some flowers and pearl centres from my stash and some white ribbon from CostCo and the stick pin is by Fancy Pants. Sentiment is computer generated font is Cheri.
Please come over and join us at the Cuttlebug spot and show us your wonderful creations.
Thanks for looking
