A card, a frame and another CD case

Hi there ~

I'm really excited about this little present I've prepared for my adorable niece, Noah. She turns 8 this week and is all girl - I love it. I had so much fun playing with pinks and flowers and butterflies ...

Her mum tells me she's into Katy Perry in a big way and so the whole family is going to have to suffer this one ... it's the latest CD, once again dressed up using Keesh's tutorial.

Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and a touch of Certainly Celery. I love the Petal Pizzazz stamps, they can be as girly as you want to make them.

Next is an 8x10" shadow frame - her bedroom is outfitted in various shades of pink, of course! I have been inspired by lots of frames in blogland, particularly Adele's with all her pretty flowers and bits. I've stamped on Whisper White c/s using an image from the Pocket Silhouettes set in Pear Pizzazz and the freehand reeds are by me! My butterflies are Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. Each butterfly has a 'bling' centre and my frame is finished with the gorgeous Satin Ribbon in Whisper White - love that stuff. I've used Sticky Strip inside the frame to hold it all together neatly. I am hooked, I can see myself doing a few more of these frames.

Unfortunately I didn't get a good pic of her birthday card as the light was dull by the time I had let the 'puffy paint' on the scallop edges dry. This next pic shows all three together, and is a little over exposed unfortunately.

Well all these goodies are wrapped up tight and winging their way to New Zealand - I hope it arrives on her actual birthday this Saturday! Happy birthday beautiful Noah ... with lots of love from your Aunty Trice xox.
