1st Birthday

It's my granddaughter's 1st birthday this month and I finally got her card made and in the post. It took me so long to get started on it as I just could not decide what image to use, but in the end I settled on an adorable Mo Manning fairy which I coloured with Promarkers and of course a generous helping of Stickles for her fairy wings. I wanted to make something a bit different so I went with a stepper card and as this is only the second time I've done one of these I did let out a sigh of relief when I'd finished!

The background paper is from Hobby House and the ribbon and dragonfly charm are from my stash. I used nesting dies from Xcut and Quickutz, the 'happy birthday' is Tattered Lace and the letters are Memory Box. I cut the sentiment and letters four times - colouring one of each to match the buttercup - before layering them up, and I hand cut the number 1 (must add number dies to my wish list).







I shall enter this in the following challenges

  2. Happy First Birthday to your little granddaughter. It doesn't seem possible it's a year since we heard about her being born.

    This really is a beautiful card Andrea. The image and the paper and colours are all so pretty and I love the shape of the matts you used for the image. Barbxx
