Baby Olivia

A card I am very happy with for baby Olivia! I love Riley and Company images and got a set imported, this stamp was a must as all my friends are having babies. I cut the image out using my Sizzix fancy labels dies and matted it on corresponding card. I found some lovely papers in my stash which worked well together. I used oriental letters as baby Olivia is part Chinese.

Crazy Cat 30th

A joke between my best friend and I is that she is a crazy cat lady so I just had to make her card cat related. She only actually has two cats so I squeezed as many in as I could. A great feature of the pets in a mess CD is that you can recolour things so I recoloured the sofa to match hers and the lady's hair to match my friends. I then recoloured her clothes to match the card and added a picture of a dog which I recoloured to match her chocolate lab.

I finished the card off by adding lots of layers with 3D foam, some glitter and gemstones.
