The snow-drop, April’s meekest child…

Sharing a CAS birthday card I made for a friend featuring the image she had done for her by Mayzy, this is Corinne.

It’s actually quite a good likeness of Corinne, with her big hair and big smile!

My card layout comes from the current sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments and my sentiment from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Perfect Words.  I double matted everything in black and red to echo the colours of Corinne’s top, she loves red and black.

Now it might seem a bit odd to have snowflakes on a birthday card but when I saw they were the theme at Addicted to Stamps and also the embellie shape on the sketch I just had to go with them.  After all, Corinne loves the snow, loves her short shorts too.  Strange for an Aussie like me to contemplate wearing short shorts in weather cold enough for snow but guess when you’re used to the cold you can wear what you want.

I added in my snowflakes with another retired Stampin’ Up! stamp called Serene Snowflakes as well as a Tim Holtz Frozen Alpha Parts.  For some added sparkle, the current theme over at Crafty Friends, I did the snowflakes in glitter and popped some rhinestones in the centre.
