Oh so Girly

The new challenge at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days this fortnight is Oh So Girly. We are being sponsored this time by The Poodles Parlour. 
The last challenge  Add an Animal was very well supported and I had great fun looking at all the entries and visiting so many cool blogs. 
I really love this image as the dress reminds me of the kind we wore when we were young,so many years ago!! She also reminds me of my sister Jenni when she was little, I'm not sure if it was intended as a self portrait but that was what prompted me to use it and to give her red hair. I bought a new pack of papers and my first Martha Stewart punch  which I thought would really fit in with the girly theme. I love the butterflies and glitter and the chinzy flowers on the papers. I wanted to make the little blue butterflies  which I added to give a focus stand out from the card so I curled some acetate strips with my heat-gun and stuck them to it, it's a bit tricky to see from my poor photography but they actually stand about an inch from the card. The two branches in the foreground which are also a Cardmadfairy image were coloured to match the flowers in the backing paper to try to give a feel of the little girl being surrounded by flowers and butterflies.
I would also like to take part in the following challenges summer use a Digi use a Digi flowers open glitter (on backing paper and flowers) butterflies anything goes summer

Time for a new challenge over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and this time the theme is to include an animal anywhere on your project. The sponsor this time is Pink Gem who are offering some of their lovely digi stamps to our lucky winner!
 I combined two images this time and coloured them as always with Promarkers. I was really pleased to find a button in my box which just happened to have all the colours from the Basic Grey backing papers!
