Flower Girl

Hi everyone on this lovely Wednesday! I received a wonderful gift from Birgit/Biggan about two weeks ago. She sent me this stamp set that I had loved but was unable to get here in the U.S. Included with this gift she sent me this gorgeous card and some stamped images from Hanglar. Okay, I can't actually read her blog but her art is amazing! And she does speak and write in English. You can find her on SCS under Biggan. If you are not familiar with her work make sure you check out her gallery! I haven't photographed her card...it's still sitting on my mantel in my livingroom and I look at it everyday!


I was really nervous coloring this image because if I screwed it up I didn't have another one. But it's okay...I've done better. But, like I said, I think I totally wigged myself out and was so afraid of messing it up, that it's a bit messed up. Oh well, it's still cute!
I colored the image with Copics and added stardust sparkle to the flower centers. I accented her dress, flower centers, and cheeks with a white gelly roll pen. I did a wacky stitch around the outside, which I was pretty impressed with myself! The flowers are Primas and the centers are pearls from Kaiser craft. The cardstock is Bazzill and the dot paper is from CK. I hadn't added a sentiment yet...I usually wait until I decide what I am going to use the card for, and I think this is going to be mom's Mother's Day card. I think she'll love it. Now I just have to come up with a gift...that's never easy!


Off to Kindergarten Orientation this morning! My son Joey is so excited! Me too! Have a great day!

She is so darling....such a cute little card...I like the little flowers with the "dimples".

Okay.....if you can "wig" yourself out, then I am going to sit down and colour one of my frogs this week. I'll pick one out tonight....and ponder it through the day tomorrow.
Hope the Kindergarten orientation was fun. Joan
