I had a shop around earlier this week to find a cute little girl for my daughter’s 5th birthday card earlier this week. It didn’t take long to stumble across Emma, the character in Tiddly Inks Celebrate Joyfully stamp. I have a very soft spot for adorable images, and Tiddly Inks images are just that!!
Unusually for a girly 5th birthday card, I haven’t chosen a pink or purple colour scheme – Erin’s favourite colour is yellow (as she announced as I was halfway through decorating her bedroom pink recently….), so, using Pro Markers, I have coloured Emma’s dress in yellow, as well as using a hair colour that is very similar to my daughter’s.
The lemon and peach papers are by American Crafts, and have a lovely texture. I added a little Scattered Straw Distress Ink around the edge of the lemon to add some definition. The base layer is from the Snippets collection by Studio Calico. The banner was a file from the Silhouette store, popped up on 3D pads for extra depth.
I couldn’t resist adding the cute little patch of flowers to the inside of the card, on a mat of yellow and white polka paper from the Papermania Spots and Stripes Brights stack, which matches the die-cut flowers I made for the front of the card.
All in all, it’s a card I know Erin will love! And if you find yourself in need of a spot of retail therapy, head over to the Tiddly Inks store…you won’t regret it 😉
Now there is also the not so little matter of a DT call over at Tiddly Inks. I have just had a peek at all the fabulous applications so far – and I’m quaking in my boots! But, as the saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained…!
I’d also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
