Birthday card for my baby girl......



......only she isn't a baby anymore, lol! Georgia became a teenager on Saturday and this is the card I made for her.
I'm never very comfortable making bigger cards as I always think they look a bit bare, but sometimes you feel as if you should make bigger cards for close family, don't you? Anyway, Georgia prefers the uncluttered look so I think she was happy with this one! I really love this particular Pink Petticoat paper because of the pretty leaf design and it was fun to add the embellishments in this way. The sentiment reads 'A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart', and I mean every word of it!



Materials:
Image - Suzanne Woollcott - Gorjuss
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Papers - Pink Petticoat
Die - Nestie Scalloped Oval
Punch - Woodware Flower
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Ribbon, Brads and Sticky Pearls from my stash

Georgia was absolutely thrilled to bits with all the lovely cards and gifts she received from blogging friends and I know she is desperate to upload piccies of everything and then thank you all individually. Only problem is she's had a mammoth History project to complete this weekend and is still working on it tonight. She is a perfectionist so she will no doubt be going the extra mile!! I've told her that everyone will understand and she can catch up with her blogging tomorrow!! I'm thanking you all on her behalf for tonight - hope that's okay?!

Enjoy the rest of this wonderfully sunny day peeps.

WOW! I bet Georgia was absolutely loved this beautiful card! Know what you mean about wanting to make bigger cards for family and it is difficult to fill the space but you've got it just perfect by using the gorgeous paper. Love the gorjuss girl and how you coloured her, her hair looks amazing! Beautiful little flowres and ribbon too. Best of all of course is that sentiment, beautifully written and she'll treasure it I know, she's such a gorgeous girlie. I look forward to seeing what she makes with her new stash and possibly what you make with it tee hee! Hope her history project comes out ok. Chris xxx
