Girlie Goldilocks

I love little girls! I’m auntie to some amazing cherubs and proud godmother as well. Mr. Gears’ side of the family has an abundance of estrogen as well so we always needs little girl birthday cards. This week at One Stop Craft Challenge Shelley had the DT create Girlie cards. Our sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs, has some GREAT girlie images. Join us this week and you could win some of your own!

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #121
Color Inspiration ~ Sweet n’ Sassy Digi Challenge #20 Photo Inspiration
I found inspiration in the birthday theme, the curly haired girl, the dots on the balloons (I used buttons) and the red and white banner (I created bars of DP).
Simon Says Challenge…..Sing It (Thank Heaven for Little Girls from the movie Gigi)
365 Cards Day 98 ~ Lucky 13 I have 13 buttons on my card.
My Creation
TIP – A quick tip to add dimension to your card without much fuss. Instead of trying to fussy cut and color multiple pieces of an image, opt to pop up some of the elements on your card. Here I used pop up dots to raise the entire image panel and one of the patterned paper strips. When I made my button collage I used pop dots on a few of them also. You get some wow factor with just a bit of foam.

Image Detail
I had fun playing with Copics and tried something different for Goldilocks hair. I like the contrast, but can’t decide if I gave her a bad ‘frost’ job (do people still do that or is it just called highlights now) or if she has a massive root touch-up required. LOL.
