So, I now have cards for surrogate Niece 1 and Nephew but their sister, Niece 2, also has her birthday soon. All three children have a birthday within a four/five week period - the joint party is madness! I wanted to make sure that Niece 2 also had a special card and then, just as I was working out what I wanted to use for it, I saw Mo's Challenge and, wow! There it was again, just the thing. So, this card fits the challenge and is perfect for Niece 2! How good is that?!
Of course, all children have their own little personalities, but Nieces 1 and 2 also have their own little quirks. Niece 1 will only wear skirts or dresses but has no real preference for colour. She can be bold and adventurous, and I think her 'explosion' card is perfect for her. Niece 2, however, will only wear trousers and as long as it is pink, it's fine! She is perhaps more creative and dreamy than Niece 1, so I reckon this card sums her up. Of course, Nephew will be happy wearing his pirate costume no matter what. Guess what we'll be buying him for his birthday!
So, here's my entry for Mo's challenge:
Image: Mo's 'End of Summer' (which is soooo dreamy, don't you think?), coloured with Prismacolors
Papers: Cloud 9 - sorry, I can't be more precise as I've thrown away the name strip (doh!)
I used a couple of the 'flowers' from the patterned paper to make a little embellishment and added a few pearls at the top and bottom corners. A piece of pink ribbon and she's done.
I know that Niece 2 will love this card - thank you Mo for making me a special aunty!
