Sweet Sunday Sketch #97

Hello!!! Happy Sunday!!!! It's time of course for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch!!

I had SOOOO much fun making my card for today!!.. SOOOO much FUN!!!

My BEAUTIFUL Jorja is turning FOUR tomorrow (*sniff*) so this little creation is for her (SMILE).Her favourite colours at the moment appear to be RED and GREEN.. quite appropriate I guess given her birthday is five days before Christmas.. although I think I'll need to be pushing the whole PINK thing soon.. hahahha. Any way... let me show you my card.. it's FUN and has a little something special on it!!! ooohhhh!!!

The card:-

The Sketch... FUN!!!!:-

Can you see the little suprise!!!???.. Well ok it's pretty hard to miss isn't it.. but did you know that that there BIG red flower is actually a HAIR CLIP!!??? Yep.. I made a hair clip so she can wear it in her hair for her sweet little "Morning Tea Party".. FUN.. RIGHT???!!!

I received my NEW Flower Folds Big Shot Die during the week and decided to have a little play. Now.. apart from having copious amounts of FUN making this little creation.. I have to say that FELT + BIGSHOT dies = BIG, BIG, BIG.. electric shock!!!.. that part not so much fun!!! hahaha.
There I go digressing again!!.. So I cut out FOUR of the second smallest flower and then went about stitching them together before "fluffing" them a tad and attaching them to a hair clip. The actual clip is clipped onto the card so that I just have to unclip it and the card can remain intact.. well ok that's the plan.. although I dare say that when Miss Jorja see's said card she might in all the excitement just RIP it off...hahaha

I'll be sure to take photos of it once it has been clipped into the Birthday Girls hair!!!
