Valentine for a Sweet Girl


I love the shabby chic and romantic cards so I thought I would make one for my granddaughter's  valentine card. She's three and full of sweetness. I don't know if she'll understand the corrugated cardboard and cheesecloth. :-) As she gets older, maybe we can  have crafting dates and I can teach her about these things.

I'll enter my card into these challenges: A Creative Romance where they have a sketch this time.

Wasn't sure I was on your blog there for a moment! Looky at you with all those layers! Fabulously done!! The flowers are gorgeous and that sentiment is great! My son and I play a game every week using it. First one to tell the other they love them more on Monday gets dibs all week :) Been playing it for years and he still does even as a teenager. Love it!

Granddtr only needs to understand that her loving Grammy made her a beautiful card all for her very own self! This is so pretty with all these little feminine frills & I love that image. The pretty doily (oh I see you've used the modeling paste --inspiration--! and that silver rub on the doily. More inspiration. I'm liking all these lovely techniques & materials you've used here. That image is perfect for a sweet little Miss! TFS & hope you're keeping warm.

This cold weather is making me hibernate and I really dislike it! Hope your pipes do well. Keep warm!

JD/ Jill said...

Very pretty! And Yes, I do hope you get to someday make cards with your DGD. Those were some of the best memories for me. (My Granddaughter is a teen now...and doesn't get together as much with GrandMom)

That's one of my favorite all-time ballerina images and she's just so perfect for a little girl. Great works with the shabby chic, Benzi! Love all the layers.

Colleen Dietrich said...

Aw! Since she's so young, maybe she won't get all those details her grandma put into this card, but hopefully her mommy will save it and let your GD treasure it as she gets older.

Sassy Raggedy said...

Hey Benzi, Had to look twice to make sure I was on the right blog...lol This is wonderful...Love those layers and all the embellishments are awesome. Great job...Hugz, joann

Lynne in NI said...

Awww how sweet is this! How do you switch styles so easily? I'm always a bit stumped by shabby chic, just can't do it!
Oh, and I'm surprised you aren't already having crafty play dates ;)

Shirley said...

Wow, the perfect card for the perfect GD. She will love this and actually treasure it I am sure. That heart, the flowers and flourishes and the cluster of hearts will capture hers!
