Petals and Palm Trees

A customer wanted "something floral" for her granddaughters' birthday cards. Both girls have unusual and relatively short names, so I cut out the letters of their names and had a lot of fun playing with colour.

Another customer sent me the invitation she had received to a new baby's Simchat Bat, the Jewish naming ceremony for newborn girls.  I immediately noticed that the photograph on the invitation showed a baby with a mop of dark spiky hair, which I then had great fun recreating out of paper. I also added a few butterflies and flowers, similar to those on the invitation. The Hebrew greeting says "Congratulations on the birth of Shira."

Yes, it is winter over here in Israel, though it has been quite a mild one so far, but a card with a palm tree on it was requested. I enjoyed making something a little unseasonal. It made me think warm!

Love that spiky hair - it reminds me of my firstborn, except she was blonde. Great cards as always. Have a happy week. xx
