1st Birthday card for Zara

My stepmum Brenda asked me to make a card for her Granddaughter Zara's 1st
Birthday and here it is.

I decided to make an Easel card and followed the wonderful sketch over at Papertake Weekly this week. The papers which are gignham, spotty and stripey are all from Pink Petticoat downloads which I have edged with silver glitterations and then onto pink card.
The image is a Karens Doodles digi image called Butterfly Baby Girl which I have coloured with Promarkers I then used a corner punch to decorate the corners before sticking to pink card.
The flowers have been made using Marianne Design dies, cut and embossed with a gem in the middle of each.
I have added the name Zara and 1 Today with silver peeloff letters and then edged with glitterations.

The base of the easel card has been decorated pink gingham paper, then pink card edged with the lace doily Martha Stewart punch and then the daisy strip punch. I have added white pearl gems in the centre of each daisy. I then added pink organza ribbon with white dots along the front and added a bow using the same ribbon.

Moving along the times challenge blog are being sponsored this week by Letraset and the theme is anything goes Letraset can be found here
