All pink 'n' girly

I've made this card for the daughter of a work collegue of my hubby, you may remember a few posts down that I made THIS mother's day card with a photo of a lil girl holding out her arms, well this card is for her. Jess will be 3 this week and her dad asked if I could make a card for her, she loves horses and butterflies, she also loves Peppa Pig plus other characters.I thought I would go with the horse and butterfly theme and used the Magnolia horse and my new Sugar Nellie stamps, which have been coloured in using...yep...none other that those well popular Copics. The papers are K & Co "Sparkly Sweet", I've also added a few of my lovely new Prima flowers. The scalloped corner is an EK success punch which I bought from The Hobby House


Just a few other pics to show you around the card


























Have you noticed a lil something extra on my pics....yep...I got meself a watermark...wooo hooo, I'm slowly catching up with you lot now....lol...it's all thanks to my fabby friend Jilli, who kindly gave me instructions on how to do it, huge thanks again luvly. Now as I've said before I'm hopeless with technology and never venture into my graphics package, so when I opened up PSP I didn't even know how to get the photos from their folders into PSP....doh...what a plonker...but after a lil play around, hey presto....I have a watermark...I'm well chuffed with myself...hehehe!!
Well the Easter Hols are well and truly over and I'm back at school today, so is Ryan, but Georgia and Yasmin go back tomorrow, so I've left my eldest son Tom babysitting, never done that before, he's 17 now and about time he did something to help out....oh poor Georgia & Yassy.

p.s. I can't seem to make up my mind which background colour I prefer my photos to be taken, either a brown or a white background. It would be interesting to have your opinions, if you don't mind. The brown seems to make the cards stand out a little more I think.
