A birthday card for Lily & a sneak peek..

Hi Guys,

I am so loving having 5 days off. I forgot to mention yesterday that I had a fabulous time at the wedding on Saturday. It was a beautiful venue and it was great to spend the day with friends.

My mate Trace asked me to make a 'girly' card for her cousin's daughter who is turning 5. I have met Lil a few times and she is very cute, and quite precocious. I so enjoyed using Keesh's sketch last week for this card that I thought I'd have another play.

Another look at the sketch:

And Lily's card:

I have used some 'contraband' SAB product from the US The DSP and a sneak peek product from the new mini which starts on the 1st April. The scallop punch is in the current mini so get in fast! The number is from a non-SU die. I, of course, had to add some 'Champagne Mist' glimmer paint :-)
The CS colours are 'Pacific Point' (not so dark IRL), 'Melon Mambo' and 'Peach Parfait'. Can you guess which is the sneak peek  product???

Must run as have a lot to do. I am putting up shelves, rather unsuccessfully I must say. Think I'll need to get the plasterer out to fix my mistakes, oops.

ETA: I decided that I didn't like the 'Pacific Point' Scallop Circle so I changed it to 'Peach Parfait' and added a 'Melon Mambo' circle. I also popped on some 'Melon Mambo' sprinkles.

I think it is much more 'girly' now. What do you think?

Have a great day, and, Happy Birthday Dad xox
Cheers, Fi x

Hey Fi! Definitely like "take 2" ... much more girly and fun. But ... then ... I am a little biased ... you know how much I dislike Pacific Point! Hugs xxaxx

I like #2 best as well Fi. Love the oranges & pinks together - they look so striking! The sprinkles on the cupcake are a nice extra touch too! :)
