Well the weekend flew by, yet again. We had a lovely day yesterday as we were all invited to a first birthday party. One of my daughters friends has a little girl and she was one yesterday. My daughters love her to bits and they are both going to be godparents when she is christened.
Tonight I thought I would share one of the cards I made for the birthday girl.
Quite a simple card but very effective I thought. I started by matting a square of white card onto pink gingham paper and attached this to a scalloped square card blank. I went around the edge with some faux stitching. I used a template I had for the number 1 and cut it out of gingham paper. The sentiment was done on the computer. The butterflies and flowers were done using punches and I added some little gems to finish off the card together with a little bow.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
Before I go my daughters offered to make the birthday cake. They were thinking of doing a simple decorated sponge cake but their friend had other ideas and asked if there was any chance they could do a princess castle. Now, they are not professional bakers and have never tackled anything like this before but they did not want to disappoint. Here is the finished result and I think they did an excellent job.
