Florence...1st Birthday Card

Good morning,

Brrr...its very chilly here today even though the sun is shining. We had a very hectic few days last week preparing for a mini break to visit family in Scotland. We had a wonderful few days even though it was extremely cold. We arrived home to no heating or hot water last night but thankfully hubby managed to sort it out and we're defrosting now.

I haven't managed to visit any blogs over the last week or so but I hope to rectify that over the next couple of days.

I made this card recently for a little girl who is celebrating her 1st birthday...I couldn't resist using a bit of gingham with one of these adorable pre-coloured images from Lily of the Valley.

Pre-Coloured Image: Lily of the Valley (Art Pad 20 - Pretty Girls)
Digital Design Papers: DigiBonbons (Diagonal Bold Gingham and Brights Small Chevron)
Card Stock: SU! (Daffodil Delight)
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pearls, Heart Button and Stickles (Stardust) from my craft stash
Tools: Martha Stewart Border Punch
Sentiment: Created on the computer using 'DK Crayon Crumble' font

Love the lilac and yellow colour combo on this sweet card, Donna and those precoloured toppers are so handy for making cards when you're short on time!
Glad you enjoyed your little trip to Scotland and that you're now defrosting - we had family down from there until Saturday and they returned as the snow started to fall in Edinburgh! I'll be glad when the temperature warms up a little bit and I'm getting a little bit fed up of the wet stuff - I know we live in Wales, but it's getting beyond a joke now! Hugs, Lisa x

So pretty and a lovely colour combo too. Love the mix of patterns in the background and a super topper taking centre stage.
