Heather's Sketch at Simon Says Stamp

I had a request to make a pink/fuchsia card for a sweet 9 year old granddaughter, and the sketch from Simon Says Stamp's challenge this week was a perfect starting point.


Supplies: Bazzill cardstock; Colorbok glitter papers; Raisin Boat peacock stamp; Bic Markers; White Sharpie; AC Thickers; rhinestones from Dollarama


Here's the sketch:
heathers sketch 2


The banners were handtrimmed by marking the centre of the strips on the back, since they were wider than any of my banner dies or my square punch. The glittery 9 is perfect in the place of that banner element in the sketch!

I've been lucky enough to make cards for this little girl since she was a baby - it is really something to have the honour of doing it every year.

xoxo,
Jessi

Awesome colours, fabulous job on the card and wonderful you have been given that opportunity to create for her each year. I really like that sketch I think it will work well for one of my images I have planned thanks for sharing it.

How sweet that you get to make Chloe's card each year! I'm sure she will love this one -- pink, fuchsia and glitter? Perfect for a nine-year-old girl.

That's exactly how I make all my banners since I have no dies nor square punches. Chloe is going to LOVE this card! Your color choices are fab and what little girl doesn't love glitter and bling!

This card just screams "Chloe!" Oh, wait, that's not even what I meant! I can't believe I just said that. What I meant is, it is all pink and all girl and all perfect, in my mind, for a little girl whose name is Chloe! It's neat that she has gotten a card from you every single year!! Hugs, Darnell

That's so cool that you make cards for her every year! Do you have pictures of all of them? It would be cool to see the progression. :) Loving all the sparkles and bling!

Super FAB card for a very lucky girl, Jessi. Love the 'bling'.

Fabulous sparkle!

Oh how cute! Chloe is going to LOVE this! I have a 9 year old DD, and her fav thing on cards is pink, anything sparkly, and personalization. This has it all!
