Pink and green


It's midway reminder time at Crafty Ribbons where our challenge is pink and green. I made this card for my friend Lynsey's little girl Grace for her 5th Birthday so I know she has opened it. I was delighted to hear that Grace loved the card and said it was a real card as she loves handmade cards.

I was really pleased with the way the colouring cam out on this one. I created the folds on her clothes after watching one of Alyce's great tutorials.

I can see why your friends little girl loved her card! It is gorgeous. I love how you punched the flowers in matching cardstock. I really like how you did the folds on her dress. I will have to check out her instructions on how to do that. You really are doing so well with the copics. Love that shade of pink on the dress!
