A Belated July 2011 Birthday

My sister's birthday is in July, and my husband and I were busy traveling in our motorhome to the coasts of Oregon and Washington; therefore, my crafting table was clean. . .LOL!  But, I also missed time to make a birthday card for my sister, who has been my mentor in my cardmaking journey.

When I got home, I thought I would make and send her belated birthday wishes.  I had a cute little vintage digi of a girl holding a scrapbooking book in her arms and I thought this would be perfect.  I started looking through my papers and found a pretty lavender floral piece, that I decided was what I wanted to use.  And then I realized, purple is the most difficult color to work with in blending and application per my sister.  I decided, oh well, I might as well try it and see what happens.  She was right, but after much tweaking and re-tweaking I final got my image to where I was at least satisfied.  I loved her little white lace on her pinafore and her dress edge.  I decided to make them white with a violet edging and then stickle them to give them sparkle.  I was pretty please with her when finished.  I was hoping Heidi would think so too.
