ASFOS meets PaperPlay: Enchanted Daughter...

Click to enlarge image Good morning, one and all!

This is a scheduled post, so fingers crossed Mr Blogger plays nice! As you're reading this, we should be enjoying a fun family day out at Longleat Safari Park ... weather permitting, of course, LOL!

So today I'd like to show you a card I made for our dd's birthday (hence the blurred out sentiment). She wanted me to make her a card especially for her, because it would "mean more" to her (....awwww!), so I got her to pick out which paper she liked and also which image she'd like. She loves these Enchanted Lily images from Pink Cat Studio, probably because I ordered them for her straight from Canada so that it said her name instead of 'Lily' on the stamp packaging!! She also wanted the colour red included too!

I coloured Lily with my trusty Whispers Pens and glittered up her wings and the flower 'buds' with my Sakura clear glitter gel pen.

I'm pleased to say that dd really loved her card, and as she said "it's special because you made it especially for me mum, with love!".

I'm going to enter this card into the following 2 challenges:

1. A Spoon full of Sugar - Challenge 63: Floral Fantasy : something floral on our cards. My card has floral DP, flowers included in the stamped image, and Prima flower embellishments!

2. PaperPlay Challenges - Week 28: Dimension : make our projects as 3D as possible. I've popped up everything on 3D foam pads (as I usually do!) - I just love dimension!

Thanks as always for taking the time to stop by. You are appreciated more than you know! And I'd be so honoured if you're inspired to leave a little comment - they always brighten my day!

Big hugs to everyone!
