Too Girlie Girlie...

Blasted song stuck in my head now....I'm so rubbish at choosing titles for blog posts :)

Today's offering (Petra, I hope you're proud of me) has taken the best part of a whole day to finish, due to my now shortened crafting hours (small person/afternoon nap/drastically reduced), and I'm not convinced I'm finished with it yet. Bit more bling perhaps? More flowers maybe?

I have many failed attempts at paper flowers, and I think these ones are a step in the right direction, although they should probably be scrunched up a bit more, but I need to wait for the glue to dry first! I used some Marianne Creatable dies to cut out 4 medium sized flowers and 3 smaller ones, and then scrunched and layered them up.
The image is by Sarah Kay and is available here and she has been coloured using Promarkers. I've used some Nellie Snellen dies to cut her out and the oval behind, and the edges were inked in Tattered Rose Distress ink.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Fab n Funky - Make it Girly (it's about as girly as I get)
Anything Goes - Diecuts
Passion for Promarkers - Theme Food and Drink (slightly tenuous....)


  1. Hi Claire, what a gorgeous card. I love the cute image and your colouring is fab. Thanks for joining in with my "food & drink" challenge over at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x
    p.s. your card fits the challenge fine - I can spy a spoon and bowl on the high chair so she is feeding her dolly something nice :)

  2. Hey C! Impressed at all the posts of late :) And loving your card! The paper flowers are magic and think you should be proud!
    If you really want to add to it, I'd try some ribbon :)
