Twins are Two!

Where does all this time go to?   My Followers might recall my previous cards for my niece's twins but to think they are coming up to their second birthday in what seems like a blink of an eye is a bit frightening. New cards, yes, but I have used this image for a two-year-old before (can't really go wrong with the Ark & all those 'twos' can you! LOL).  This time around though I have a Cameo of course, so it's presence is felt in the design - allowing me to add the girls' names along the outside border.

The image is by Crissy Armstrong, isn't it fab? Coloured with my Promarkers, I did my usual trick of mirroring the image for one of the matching cards along with all the other elements to make it the same but different.  Once again, I coloured both at the same time to ensure uniformity.  I also paper-pieced the umbrellas with matching paper.

...and on the inside.
On the inside of the card I added the relevant name, courtesy of my Cameo, along the top, with coloured card behind to make it stand out.  The sentiment I created on the PC popping it into a circle & matted above the same papers as on the front of the card.  Think that more or less covers all the details.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
