Card for Chris, Tag for Joanne

Over on the Chrysalis forum, we had another birthday to celebrate. This time the birthday girl was Chris and she got some beautiful cards. I used my spin 'n' splash for this background along with one of my favourtie stamps. I so wish this little girl was available as a stamp as she is just adorable.
This is the next tag that I have made for the tag book swap that I am hosting on Chrysalis. I used an image I have waited an age to be able to buy (thanks go to my Dad for the money he gave me for Christmas). Joanne's theme is Children/Childhood so I used a very old page from a childrens book for my background & Joanne loves purples & blues.

This is the underneath of the main image. I stamped her again on vellum & tore her out before attaching with brads. The top image slides sideways. The lace was inked with distress inks to match the background colour.

What a lovely card! I agree the child is beautiful and should be a stamp. I love the effect you got with the spinning and stamping. Your friend is going to love this card!

Lol about the Pringles. I don't like them much myself but never have trouble getting hubby or brother to eat them :)

Hi Paula.
I've just been having a catch up at what you've been up too and realise I've missed loads.
Congrats on your DT spot, that's fantastic and very well deserved.
Your cupcake LO is gorgeous. What great photos and the Spring project is beautiful too.
I love your new little girl stamp, you've put her to perfect use and your other creation is stunning too, what talent!
Have a lovely weekend.
