Small Wonder

My mom and my daughter and I are headed to a Baby Shower for my niece with the other side of the family this weekend. We're going together on joint gifts so I get to make the card :)


I've always loved this stamp in the Summer by the Sea set. I think the little girl looks so sweet looking over the bluff. It makes me think of what my niece will look like in a few years, her little tufts of brown hair peeking under her sun hat. My sister in law is funny, before Adi was born, she thought in her head that her daughter wouldn't be one of those little girls to always wear pink....but as soon as she was born she said pink won her over, she can't get enough of it! So I created an all pink, all-girl card.

The girl is colored with copics, I sponged the sky to give it the feeling of a sunset. I loved this Basic Grey Perhaps paper pattern and how it went with the pinks and the sand in the main image. I gave it a little decorative piercing with my Pierceabilities template, and some Kaiser pearl accents.

Don't accents make a card? I mean, they just add that finishing touch of beauty, sort of like Jewelery don't you think? Well....today is the first sneak peek of something beautiful coming to Flourishes this Friday, it's called Finishing Touches.

Today you'll want to visit Leslie, Laura, Stacy and Julie to see the sneak peek of their Finishing Touches for today.

Tomorrow come back and see me! I'll have some beautiful Finishing Touches to show you!
