Charity Card - Just for Girls....

As this one is pink it's got to be for girlies hasn't it...! This was fairly simple to put together and the details are below for you.
Another easy one, but not pink this time - definitely a girlie image though don't you think???

Here's what you need to make these cards:
  • Pink doodled circles for backing paper
  • Light pink fluorescent paper for the top halBulleted Listf of the backing - you can't see it too clearly from this but believe me it is!
  • Add a pink cardstock topper which has been rounded on the corners
  • Smaller cardstock in a pearl cream colour which has been cuttlebugged with a spiral embossing folder, again rounded on the corners
  • Dress and flowers from an old Papermania set I've had in my stash for a while
  • Sentiment is a new one from The Range, a set of silver one's already on foam pads - only cost £1.00!!!

I do love a bargain don't you!

For the purple card I used:

  • Yellow cardstock (from the child's craft section many moons ago!)
  • Purple circles background paper - a free download - do let me know if you'd like any of the free downloads won't you..... I know us crafters like freebies!
  • Purple circles came from Crafty Ange, she sent me a lot of items in a cello bag to use for my charity cards which I appreciate and have almost used up now!
  • Cream cardstock which was cuttlebugged with a Paisley Embossing Folder
  • Image was coloured by my own fair hands with H20's and the image and H20's were supplied by Di
  • Sentiment was also sent by Di - I just matted and layered it onto blue holographic cardstock purchased many moons ago from a Craft Exhibition I went to when I was able to walk!
  • I doodled some lines around the edge of the image with glitter pens

I do love my freebies from the internet and also have lots of goodies sent to me from good friends who also help me with cardmaking for cancer charities/hospices.

Thanks Girls...!!! You are ALL superstars!
