|Just For Fun by Crafty Sentiments|
When I saw this stamp it just screamed pink and girly to me. I thought she would make a great birthday card for a little girl.
I made most of the flowers myself with a flower punch and circle punches. To make the card I just cut it at 6 1/4 x 5 1/2 to have the fold-over flap be 2" wide. This way it is still the standard card size but with a little more interest. Little girls don't want to read their birthday cards anyway, they just want to see the pretties so I wanted to minimize that aspect of the card and focus more on the image and embellishments.
The brads and fabric flowers are from my stash as are most of the papers. The mat behind her that says "friends" on it is a digital paper from Polkadoodle, Dolly Daydream, the Girl Talk Collection which you can find HERE. The sentiment is from another Dolly Daydream CD but it is the Dolly Goes East collection and you can find that one HERE. Here is a closer look at the Crafty Sentiments stamp...

Isn't she just darling?? I colored her with my Graph'it Markers. Here is a list of the color combinations used:
Skin: 4120, 4125, 4155, 4180, 4135, 5130
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270
Pink: 5115, 5125, 5130
Purple: 6110, 6120, 6175
For the polkadots on her dress I used my white opaque Shake pen also from Graph'it. For her hair I wanted the highlights just a little lighter than my lightest shade so I brushed over those areas with my blender marker lightly. I don't know why I haven't used my blender that way before!
* There was a storm today so I didn't have good lighting for pics. It's my first time using Pic Monkey, I hope they all look ok. If you leave me some love below let me know what you think so I can work this out. Thanks!
