This is a card that I made for Laurie's 50th Birthday. As she will have opened it by now, I thought I'd pop it up on here. I seem to remember Laurie likes Coffees and Brown (as do I !!!) and so I chose this gorgeous MAMBI paper.
The digital image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps. I bought two stamps and here I have used the sentiment from the other stamp. The cake looks more sparkly in real life! Not many bellies on this one. I've added two pearls for earrings and the polka dot ribbon from stash. I decided to leave it at that. I tried adding more decoration but didn't think it added to it so resisted! :-))
Colouring: (Copics by no. Promarkers by name)
Skin: E00, E02
Hair: Vanilla and Tan
Dress: Paper pieced with DP
Boots and Bow: E55, E25
Cake: Kars Extra Fine Glitter
I decorated the inside too and personalised it. And that's it really. Quite a Clean and Simple card. Although not enough white for a Less is More Challenge!
