Happy Birthday Jess

Well it is Jess' 6th birthday today and there is so much excitement in our house. We are off to the Easter Show for the day, so fingers crossed it doesn't rain.

I ordered the Pony Party stamp set to make Jess' card and then realised last weekend that it wasn't going to be here in time, so after making a couple of phone calls I managed to borrow one from Christie (thank you so much Christie).

I had so much fun making this card, the stamp set is a fabulous one for little girls' cards, especially if you like paper piecing and colouring as much as me!

I had Jess pick her favourite dsp, so I had a starting point. I stamped the image twice in stazon ink and coloured it with my blender pen, then paper pieced it so it had lots of dimension. I did lots of layering and finished the card off with a faux bow (the instructions for which came from the ultra talented Teneale Williams). I used lots of two way glue and dazzling diamonds to give the card some "bling".

This is the inside. And a close up of the pony.
Just a short post today as the kids are itching to get going. Hope you all have a fabulous day.

Til next time.

Keep on Creating.

xx Nicky
