Sweet 6

One of my many nieces birthday is next week so here is a delightful little card for her.

cc designs lil' bug emma CC0107

The two polka dot & heart papers used are from a magazine freebie 'Me To You - With Love'. All edges were distressed & edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used the Spellbinders curved rectangle dies for the image & tag. The tag was embossed & distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The butterflies are from the Kaszazz Flutterby die set & are cut from scrunched & sanded Core'dination Black Magic Cauldron paper.

This cute little girl is from CC Designs & her name is Lil' Bug Emma. She was die cute & embossed before I added a swipe of pink shimmer chalk to the embossed surface. She is coloured with the following Copics:

Skin: E50  E51  E53
Hair: C5  C7  C9
Clothes: RV000  RV10  RV32
Wings: R24  R29  R39  R10
