The Project

I have been thinking about a 'word book' for a while now, I suppose I just needed an opportunity. I had made a card for my daughters birthday already, but because its a 'special' birthday, I thought I would actually do it this time.

As a little girl she loved Sara Kay and Holly Hobby images (bedding, wallpaper, books etc.) so a good opportunity to use these stamps. I wasn't sure about sizes, so just played about with the various sizes of the card to fit her name, I think it worked out quite well and I'm really pleased with the end result!

I inked and distressed all the card and paper edges. The papers are MME Wild Asparagus, the sentiments I found on the Internet, along with the the alphabet.
I used my Retro punch for the flowers so that they would lie flat.

When I finished this card, I thought I would use up some of the papers and image and enter the Simon Says Challenge which is a sketch this week.

It also fits the Papertake Weekly challenge - Cute

If your still with me after this marathon, thanks for looking.
