Happy Birthday "Cute Girl" Card for ***Lindy's Stamp Gang***

Today I would like to share a birthday card that I made for my sweet niece who is turning four this Sunday.
For the base of my card I used some soft toned papers by Maja Design which I treated with a mask and paste & the pretty pink/purple tones of the spray's in this months "Color Challenge" did you already play??
I used a bunch of chipboard on this card. The branches are first treated with the Oakleaf Olive embossing powder when dried I splattered some Flat Fabio Greased Lightnin' Green on them which gives it a real pretty splatter effect {like a real tree}
The Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders are awesome to work with as you can see on my little frame. First I embossed it with the pretty Geranium Coral Blush and then I only embossed the top part of the frame with the Sunset Yellow Orange to give it a golden shimmer ;-)

Don't you just love the sweet vintage picture of the mother & child? I really enjoyed making this card but I think it's more a card for a ten year old then a four year old girl.

I always make my flower clusters with a piece of cheese cloth underneath it to make it more look like real flowers.

I will not be at the birthday party Sunday but I sure hope she will like the card. 
Did you know if you play along with our monthly challenge you can win a $50 dollar store credit?
That's a lot of spray's or embossing powders right?? Well good luck!

Have a wonderful day!

Just Saying - Masculine Layout for ***Maja Design***

I am so excited to show you my first layout as a Maja Girl ;-)
Sadly though that I will be filling in for Gabrielle {I will miss her awesome work with Maja} for the next six months but I'll try and do my best for you all.
I really love this months "mood board" and I was planing to participate in it before I got asked to be on the Maja Design Team! So a masculine layout I will show you today {without any blooms yep that was a real task for me}
The picture I used is one of our handsome son in a German amusement park! He told his dad can I sit on the car to take a picture. My husband said sure you can but I never got around to scrap it.
I always take out my first sheet {that's darker blue one} cut out the middle part and on top of that a whole bunch of layers. Let's have a closer look:

I don't know if some of you already know my work but I love to use chipboard especially with the beautiful Maja Design papers. For this layout I took out all my metal pieces, that had to do anything with gears or cars.

Maja Design Papers used:
Frost-Basics-P 18th of December BS, 13th of December BS, 21th of December BS
Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and I hope I have inspired you to scrap those masculine pictures. Have a wonderful and creative day!
