Sisters card (All Dressed Up image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and getting some craft time.

I have made this card for my sister's Birthday next week, I figure we look a little like them except they seem to be missing some wrinkles and extra pounds hehe. My sister is older and has blonde hair, I am a brunette so I made them to match us. They are such fun images and they can be found at All Dressed Up, they come as a pair but you also get them sent as separate jpgs in case you only want to print one. 

The papers are from Echo Park. The pearls and leaves are from Flourish with a Bling who are having a massive 50% off sale in August, it finishes this weekend.

Monochromatic Pink Summer card (Zuri Vice President Jnr image)

Hi everyone,

Here I am today with a monochromatic card. I don't often attempt these as I love adding a few colours together to make cards. The image I used is one from Zuri Vice President Jnr, she's a great little summery image isn't she? I printed out the sentiment on hard paper and used a border punch and butterfly punches.
