Beautiful....

The little extra over on the Daring Cardmaker's Blog this week was to make a card inspired by the word 'beautiful'.
It's my eldest Daughter Lauren's(I call her Lolly) birthday soon so I thought I would use this opportunity to make her card. It's a tag card, I saw something similar in one of my magazines a while ago and thought it would make a nice keepsake for her. I think she is beautiful ( all Mum's think their children are beautiful!!!) so she is my inspiration for the little extra!!



Really enjoyed making this card, but it did take all afternoon. The first picture of her was taken on her first Birthday, and the other one is fairly recent, although her hair is much darker now(She changes her hairstyle and colour every few weeks!)



The last photo is to show that I have included the word 'beautiful' on the card. I found it really hard to get a picture without the light reflecting off the tab. It's a Heidi Swapp tab, you get tons of different words to choose from in a range of colours.

Bits used; cardstock, paper from current SA kit,Heidi Swapp chipboard numbers, doodlebug rub ons, primas, chalk ink, brads, ribbon and bling from stash.

Sorry this is a bit of a long post, it was difficult to photograph this card in one go!
