Kenny K #63 Girlz

Theme at Kenny K - Girls & die cuts/punches (use more than one image for this challenge)
Sponsors & prizes - Whimsy Stamps - $15 gift certificate / 5 digis from Kenny K

My KKKG card this week uses 2 of Kenny K's images - 'Hot Weave' & 'Soho' who both seem to be girls who know their own minds & I hope the paper choice reflects their attitude & dynamism & the embellishments their feminine sides.  The images themselves have been coloured with Promarkers.

The theme as you will have noticed is to use dies &/or punches on your card & on this design I have used a Martha Stewart border punch on the dotted papers in the background, a floral Woodware punch for the smaller flowers, 2 differing Double Do dies for the leafy flourishes & a Marianne Creatables die for the larger pink flowers. Now, I do admit it is a bit difficult to see the MS punched work on the front of the card as most of it is hidden behind the image & its mat, but at least it is clearly seen on the inside of the card. LOL. I love this Marianne Creatable flower die as it produces a lovely sized floral embellishment which is quite sturdy when glued together too. I was going to punch out of pink dps but finding the same colours as my PMs was a bit tricky so decided to colour the flowers with my Promarkers too so they would perfectly match the girls' outfits.

For the inside of the card I used the same papers & glossy black card as the front, as well as the same MS punch.  The cleverly worded sentiment in two sections (on the left hand side as you are looking at it), is from Marlene (at Disguised As a Grown Up), and on the opposite side I used one of Paulette's at TLC - a heart with 'friend' on the side - but faded it out to a grey so that I will be able to write who the card will be going to over the top. The 'happy birthday' on the top of this I added myself on the PC.
