A wall hanging


I am back, I was having some technical difficulties and not online for a little while, but they are resolved now so I can share. The 1st project is a wall hanging I made for my niece who just turned 9, I used a piece of heavy cardboard for the base and covered using Topstich paper from CTMH, I also used a sticker from the matching Stickease and added some flowers, pearls, sparkles and dimensional elements. Then all I did was add some luscious pink satin ribbon at the top, and it only took about 20 minutes to make. Next up is a super simple invitation I made for my daughters 8th birthday party, it will be here 1st b-day party with friends and my 1st super fancy decorated party, I can not wait. Anyways we are doing a mermaid themed party but it is goining to be very soft and pretty light pink, soft white, and sand . So the invites are really simple cardstock distressed with baby pink ink, I used Simple invites and Simple stiches stamp sets both retired from CTMH and the adorable mermaid and fish stamp  is Sugar Plums Emma. The ribbon came from wal-mart, it was almost impossible to get a good picture because the ink is so light and I really need to get a light box built.
