One of my great nieces is quite a tomboy really, and I didn't want to make her card too "girlie". I knew I wanted to try out some embossed words, but apart from that inspiration was a little lacking.
I chose one of the backing papers from the Serif Digiboss CDs and added the embossed sentiments. Then inspiration struck - she loves her new puppy, so I took one of her photos into cut-out studio to eliminate the background, and added a rose, which I cut in half using the scissors tool to make it look as though the dog had it in her mouth, and finally added a faux ribbon and pearl, and using stamp mode put some faint white butterflies on the background. Yes liked the effect! Hope she does.
