Papercraft Star 111


I am not a girly girl, and neither is my daughter.

But every so often I create a girly kind of card, and once in awhile I give them to my daughter for her birthday.

Papercraft Star has a "girly" challenge this week.  I always think of that as being lacy, frothy, pink, something like that.

Here is our photo inspiration !

My card isn't quite that shabby chic, but since it is for my daughter's birthday this year, well it should do just fine for a girl.

One thing I did on this that is a little different is that I put correction tape around the flowered paper, and then scraped some of it off.   I also sewed in a couple of unusual places.

Everyone has a card within them that screams GIRL !

Join us this week at Papercraft Star - we are all girls there !!
