From The Little Girls

I think this may be one of my favorites. This was for The Husband's birthday. I used an image from Tiddly Inks called Daddy's Girl. I imported it into my Silhouette and replicated it. Then flipped the second one horizontally and resized it smaller. I used the font Fiolex Girls and added the sentiment. I then printed both image and sentiment right out onto my card. I used Marvy Opaque Stix to add the color. I love the way they dried to an almost painted look!
My lessons learned (tip): When running your card through the printer, put the natural curve of your card up. I placed it down and it kept getting caught in the printer because it created this little bow in the paper that would not feed flat through the printer. It seemed so opposite of what I should be doing to put that curve up, but that was the only way it worked. Go figure.
I would like to share my card at:
Simon Says birthday, closes May 9,
CAS-ual Fridays clean and simple birthday, closes May 10,
Come and Get it Challenges for the boys, closes May 11,
Top Tip Tuesday clean and simple, closes May 21

Great card, I like how you did the two girls with the one smaller and then just added a very hint of color to it. Thanks for joining us at Come and Get It.
