She's one year old

A friend's granddaughter that is. Yes, a whole one year old. Seems like only 2 seconds ago she was just new born. Time is relative and so much has really happened in the last 12 months that the accelerator pedal seems to have been hard pressed down.
Any how, back to the card I have made to mark this milestone in a young girl's life.
Regular readers to my blog might be a bit surprised at this hehe.

Yes - it's pink! Lol It's a simple stepper card

The image is from Whoopsie Daisy. An image that has been stored on the pc and never printed before. Coloured with promarkers before cutting out with a nestie and inked before removing. Mounted onto a larger matt silver base. Some glossy accents added to the balloon.
The base card is pale pink and both lined and topped with a rainbow coloured paper. Two strips of a deeper pink paper next were edge punched. One attached to the card, the other on the "insert". Some pale pink sparkly organza type ribbon topped with a frilled pink ribbon across the bottom with a flower shape punched from the same matt silver then popped up a shiney silver "1" on that.
The sentiment was heat embossed onto the insert bit with a butterfly stamp that seems to have been made for this paper. An MS punched butterfly added in the corner with a tiny dab of stickles.
No gems, pearls or other little bits were added that could be swallowed if the little girl in question should get her hands on this.
