Finally Got a Half Decent Pic!!!

Here we are finally with another card!!!!
I've had trouble getting decent pics due to the lack of daylight! At last I've cracked it & can show you the card I made for my niece who's birthday it is tomorrow!
I picked up these great shaped cards at the Hobbycrafts show last week in Glasgow. I have some nesties Labels No.1 which I think match the shape perfectly so decided to use these to matt & layer the image! I thought it looked a little too formal  so I offset the image to distract from that!
The Image is called Charlston Daisy and is available from Di's Digi Downloads
I printed the image onto super smooth decoupage paper and coloured her using promarkers, which I also picked up at the show in Glasgow! A girl has to treat herself!!!The backing papers were from my stash, the blue one was from a docrafts pack eons ago & the pink is from the Shabby Milly download kit by Joanne Barsby & is availablle at Cardmaking Downloads.

I rescued the ribbon from a boxed gift set & recycled it here! The flowers were also from the show in Glasgow! See how much fun I had!!! 

Update!!! I gave this card to my niece today & she was over the moon with it!! So glad you liked it Sarah!!!

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:-


  1. Oooo, I'm jealous, did you spend a fortune? I'm so definitly going to the one in March! I did console myself by spending a pretty penny in our local craft shop though! I love the whole card, very pretty :)

  2. It's gorgeous Dawn! Love the shading/highlights on her need to give me a lesson!!! Am also covetting those nesties too!!! Lol! Hugs from Ali x

  3. Thanks ladies! I do have to say I did spoil myself but hey ho I work hard! Must say I only bought stuff I kenw I would use this time around so I feel quite justified! Sooo many times I've spent money on stuff I haven't used!!!
