#120 For a Little Girl
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - for a little girl
Sponsor & prize this week - LOTV (£10 gift voucher)
Using one of our sponsor's images called 'New Hat', I tried to keep this one attractive enough to a little'un and simplistic enough for them to walk around with without 'bits' coming off. Nothing like a child pulling at a flower just to see if it can come off (you know I am right, LOL)....and what young girl doesn't try dressing up in her mum's hat & shoes at some point - therefore a perfect image.
So made this nice and colourful - and didn't go the whole 'pink' route. Why girls are force fed Barbie-pink all the time I don't know? Trouble is they think they should like it because it is 'girly', but who tells them it is 'girly' in the first place. My sister used to love all the autumnal colours when she was a tot & I have always been more of a sky-blue/lilac kinda girl myself. The colours I went for on this one are I reckon bright & happy (courtesy of fabby dps from Design House Digital), and chose what I hope a child would consider a 'pretty' shape too. Not too large a card either, so when she takes it out of the envelope she can cope with doing it on her own. To the image I gave just the one layer behind but that is a sunshine-y lacy one and kept the embellishment to a bare minimum with just one strip of narrow satin ribbon (from Fantastic Ribbons).
Have a great week everyone and thanks so much for all the lovely comments you leave me.
