Good morning my crafty friends

One of my relatives asked me to make a special card for their granddaughter's 16th birthday.  The birthday girl, Faith, is also a dancer and has legs that go on forever.  I was specifically asked for a Gertrude card haha, and I was only too happy to oblige using this fun stamp.  The family's pet name is 'our little giraffe'.... it just had to be!

The true colour of the base card is shown below, why it changes colour I will never know!

Gertrude's made a special effort for this occasion, new glasses (made from acetate ) pearl necklace, it's not meant to hang straight as Gertrude's head is on an angle, AND, she's even put on her false eyelashes!

Enough room left for a personal message

I printed the photo using my Sprocket and mounted it onto pink card.  The pink card is by Stampin' Up and is a petal pink, it does look much prettier in the flesh

In case you can't quite see just how long Faith's legs are here is a close up.... if I got in that position I'd never get off the floor!

It is a large card, too big for an A4 envelope so I used gift wrap  and a pretty ribbon and die cut white card (Stampin' Up) to add the recipient's name

Thank you for visiting my little blog today and for your lovely comments on yesterday's post, take care
