Card for Pheobe

Ahhh my wee tootsies are aching after venturing down to the city centre for the second time this week.  I know Belfast is nowhere near as busy as other cities, but it's bad enough - I think maybe I'm just not a shopper!!  But thankfully, I think that's me finished with my Christmas shopping, just my cards to finish now. Ha. (Apologies in advance to my international buddies ... there's no way my cards will be received in time for Christmas unless I hop on the next flight over!)  Apologies as well for my lack of visiting all your new projects ... hopefully normal service will resume after Christmas ;)

This card uses a favourite image from Lili of the Valley - coloured with pencils.  Silver peel of letters (at the bottom of the card - doesn't really show up in pic) and sparkly peel off number.  Clear gems on butterflies.

Layout inspired by Monday Lunchtime Sketch TSSC293 - I had intended to put my 7 in the middle of the flowers, but it just didn't look right

  1. Such a sweet card for a 7 yr. old. Just adorable. I love that patterned paper, colorful and stripe-y.
    Hey, a flight over would be nice. Catch the next jet out. You'll be back home in time for Christmas....unless you get snow-bound. Oops......Ha

    I have cooked all day and am a tired puppy. Rather, I've prepared things to cook tomorrow. Hope it'll all be tasty.

  2. What a delightful card, so sweet. I hope your feet are fully are recovered from their adventure :o)
