…and all things nice

Sharing a card I made for my niece featuring the super sweet Gorjuss girl, Sugar and Spice, stamp from Santoro.

For the layout of my card I’ve followed the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I’ve used my sentiment for the thin rectangular element and mounted my stamped image on the focal rectangular element.  As this card is for a birthday and features a birthday sentiment, I’m entering it in the current challenge at Allsorts, who are turning 10.  I haven’t even been blogging or really into card making properly for that long so its quite the achievement and am glad I could play along in this milestone challenge.

Over at Cardz 4 Galz they have a recipe challenge, which helped me with the elements of the card.  I was always going to have an image and sentiment but I went with the pretty designer papers to fit the recipe and added in three gems as embellies for the same reason.  It was a great recipe as the end result is a very pretty card, which I hope my niece will love.
