For two special little girls

A friend of mine asked me to create name plates for her two very special grandchildren.
These are what I came up with

I really like them.
I just have to hope that my friend likes them (she will get them this weekend)..... and much more importantly - I hope her grandchildren like them!

** Edited bit**

To create these, I bought 2 picture frames from the local B&M store (they cost £1.30 ish) bargin!!!
Then I created the letters (freehand drawing) on a selection of papers from my stash.
These were then layered onto textured cardstock and 3d glossed over the top. Glitter was added around the edge.
While I was waiting for them to dry I created the back panels by cutting up scraps of paper and gluing them to the back plate. Pen detail was added to finish this layer off.
I fixed the letters into place and dotted some adhesive gems around them.
Once the frames were all put back together I added some little butterflies to the outside of the glass.
All finished!
Thanks for looking x
