(Sorry to keep rambling) I wanted to use the devine Miss Anya Collection stamps that have sadly sat neglected and unused since I purchased them (a long time ago!!) These 3 savvy young gals are perfect for tweens and teens. Rather than colouring the whole image I paper pierced some of it. This was the result..
and this is how she looked completed.....
I bundled her up with some Grosgrain Ribbon as wrapping....
Then.......when she took the ribbon off.......
I was sooooooooooooooooo happy with the result that a (somewhat sad but enthusiastic) happy dance was undertaken. It looked so pretty with the bangles in it!!
The card was a very narrow panel at the back of the easel which cannot be seen when opened, but is there as a special reminder. Here it is from the side and close ups of the delightful draw handle and the sentiment. Given that the inside of the draw gleamed...Happy Birthday did not seem right. "Sparkle" fitted the bill perfectly.
Thanks so very much for enduring this post to the end. The crafting community is such a wonderful and caring group, makes you feel good just to be a part of it.
