Pure Innocense

Aren't these little girls just precious? Well, my dear friend Frances sent these to me for my birthday a month ago, and I'm just now getting around to putting them on a card. I colored them right away, but the mojo had left the building and I didn't know what to do. I decided that the sweet and simple style of the images warranted a simple layout so as not to over power the charm. So, I used my Labels 8 Spellbinders die to make the base, colored the images with copics, and ink distressed the edges with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink) The dp is from Anna Griffin's Sierra Collection. I added a couple of buttons (PTI), and some Ice Blue Rhinestones (Kaisercraft) for a little punch, and that's about it. Simple and sweet!!

Here's the card with the image called My Balloon:



Here's the card with the image Flower Girl:


I thought I'd share a quick photo with you too. This was the view out my front bay window yesterday morning. The dairy in the photo is our neighbor. That's really the color too. The sun wasn't fully up yet.
