The background paper was chosen because of her interest in makeup. What better way to illustrate that than these pouting lips? I don't think it shows very well in this picture, but the big lips near the base got extra shine with "lipgloss" (aka stickles). Other than that, I just added one or two stamped and embossed swirls and the row of hearts at the base, for a romantic touch.
I really like butterflies on my projects, and this delicate pink one feels just at home here. Combined with the much more "raw" metal birthdate plate it all corresponds very well with the background.
Oops. This was a bright one...hm. Well, you might be able to see the white on white stamping anyway. Actually I used a Silver pearl embossing powder here instead of plain white. It turned out softer, with a little shimmer. I added a swirl and some bling because....ja, just because. We all deserve some bling.
Isn't the brad just sooo right? :) Above it a glimpse of the bright pink felt swirly thing....
On the back of the tag is a "secret" message (okok, not so secret anymore...) and a glitter heart.
All in all, a lovely letter for a lovely girl.
