The Terrible Twos ...... no, she's as cute as a button .......


Inspired by the Just Magnolia & H S challenge this week, I have made this number two birthday card for my great neice who will be 2 years old on 17th February - she's a gorgeous little girl and has such a sunny smile!!  My card began as a computer generated number 2, then the fun started when I had to cut the white card and the dark pink card with a very sharp craft knife - could have done better, but not too bad I think.

I coloured my image with copics and added stardust stickles - she looks as if she is balancing on that lace lol.  I used white 30mm zig zag lace plus a doohickey swirl and a heart branch cut with magnolia dies.  The pearls were part of a Zva self adhesive flourish




I added pink/white mulberry roses, buds and pretty blossoms plus leaves cut with my MS punch.  Lastly, I added a couple of butterflies from a decoupage sheet which I embellished with more stickles.

I am entering this into the Just Magnolia & HAnglar Stanglar Challenge 'pink, pearls, lace'
and Lets Craft and Create (use flowers)

Lace, Zva Pearls, Mulberry Flowers are all from www.ribbongirl.co.uk

see you soon Mary G x
