Francesca


Yesterday I spent all afternoon with my wonderful niece Kristen. Had to laugh when she facebooked me asking for help with a school project. Was a bit leery at first since she is in her 3rd year nursing at McMaster University and couldn't quite figure what I could possibly help her with in this field. The project was to put together something creative as to why she chose this profession. We had a blast picking out colours, papers, embellishments.........Kristen did the writing while I did the designing. I will show pictures of our little mini scrapbook in my next post once it is completely done.
This card was created for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog (birthday card), Charisma Cardz (recipe) and Stamp TV (sketch). Coloured the image with prisma pencils, added glitter and stickles then layered on kelly green. The base is soft green with DP and hot pink shimmery paper, added a ribbon duo in hot pink and yellow with three shiny flowers with a bauble for the centre. Decided to add the "Happy Birthday" charm to Francesca's hand..... The perfect touch for Kimmie's first Birthday challenge.
