This one is for a little girl who just turned five. She's having a princess themed party, so I tried to make a ball gown card. It came out ok, but it's not exactly what I envisioned. You know when you have a picture in your head of what you want to accomplish, but you just can't get it to happen? I hate that. Still, this is better than my first attempt but it's not quite right. I'm not sure yet what's bugging me about it. Anyway, the top of the gown is beaded. I used tacky tape (love that stuff!) and micro beads. I stamped some flowers on the bodice and the skirt to give it some interest and used two layers of the fabric on top of that. It opens on the side. You can see on the left side skirt a straight part, that's the hinge.

Birthday Boy

Birthday card for a little boy who just turned two. I used a cloud stencil and for the background and colored the frogs in using a blender pen and inks. They look a little morose, but I just love these frogs!
