For Your Confirmation
I used little Lucia Tilda to make a confirmation card for my goddaughter. Her confirmation will be sometime in the next couple of months (and yes, it is a sad thing that I don't KNOW when it will be, since I am JUST the godmother, but that's the wonder of estranged family for you folks).
I love it, though I don't know if she'll like it. I don't even know her favourite colour, so I went with a trend colour. You can never go totally wrong with those, can you?
I got the idea for this card, when I saw a card on Rach's blog a while back and the tutorial can be found at Pam's blog.
I adjusted it just a bit, because I'll use the backside for text instead of the inside and since my card wouldn't keep standing properly, I used force *lol*
Good thing I decided against using the inside, before I started sticking the design paper on it, because it started acting up AFTER I did that and I wouldn't have been all that amused if I'd decorated in the inside just to stick it together afterwards.
This card will be entering the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - Use Ribbon
Stampin' for the Weekend - Springtime (because of the flowers and butterflies and confirmations always happen in spring)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
