Princess Mia & Marci with Rose

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. =) I have two cards to share with you today.


This is my last project as a DT member for Squigglefly. The challenge is to make a gift card holder of any kind.


I used the adorable Princess Mia by Jane Beljo for my card. She is so cute! =) I added Glossy Accents to the heart balloon that she is holding.


I paired her with Echo Park's yummy Life is Good collection. I inked the piece with spun sugar and antique linen when the paper was still in the die. I love how the color is close to the one on the pretty pink paper!


Here is where I hid the gift card. Fun, no? =)

My second card is for La La Land Crafts.


I used the pretty Marci with Rose for my card. I used the digital form of the image. You can find it here.


I also paired her with the lovely Life is Good collection. =) The letter stickers came with the paper pack. The blue wavy border is a leftover piece from cutting a ric rac using a Papertrey Ink border die.

By the way, Two Peas is offering free shipping for orders over $25 with code HOLIDAY! It's still time to get the last bit of shopping done! =)

That's all for today. Have a fantastic day!
