Happy Birthday Lytana!

I created this card for a dear friend for her 38th Birthday. It wasn't something she expected as I had never created a card for her before. I must say she was speechless! I struggled with this one because I am so use to using flowers only for my birthday cards but to drag a mouse in, what was I thnking?! Anywho! card is 6.50" x5" , I cut a 4" square and embossed it with the swiss dots folder from cuttlebug. I used a cotton ball dabbed with violet pigment ink and swiped across the square to make the dots pop. The scallop was cut using Storybook cartridge at 4.75". It is the flower shadow also highlighted the scallop edges. Stamp is House Mouse soothing bath. Colored with Sharpie and Bic ultra fine markers. Flowers are from making memories and gems are by Darice. the branches are punched using a Martha Stewart branch punch. The paper is Sunburn doublesided paper stack picked up at Sam's Club. The branches were an unexpected find as the paper was a check pattern in greens only. I love the variations in the color.

Best wishes card

I made this card for my niece who got married on July 11, 2009. Her colors were eggplant, light pink, and silver. I made this card before I saw the actual colors and I was impressed that I came up with almost an exact match! Card size is 6.5" x 5" The background as well as the forground paper is by Paper Passport paper collage scraps by Provocraft. The scalloped oval is cut from Home Decor frame. I simply rotated it. The paper is DCWV glitter stack in pink. Blck oval cut at 3.25" and white oval cut at 3". Stamped image is from Autumn Leaves wedding set. I used psychedelic transparent embossing powder on the dress, colored the bouquet violet along with the flower in the bride's hair. And I was done. I was very happy with how it turned out. Share what you think and thanks for looking!

Beautiful & Handsome

These two pages will be dedicated to the bride and groom. The words beautiful and handsome were cute with Storybook cartridge at 1". Glitter glue in silver was added to the letters. The circles and ovals were cut with Plantin Schoolbook at 3.50" of course cardstock is #120 bright white. The flowers are vellum from the Paper Studio. I layered the flowers and inserted brads also from the Paper Studio. I look forward to your comments and thanks for Looking.

I forgot about the silver pearls in the center of the flowers! And all labels are computer written and edged with a silver metallic marker by Pearlescent Painters. Thanks for looking!

The sticker dress is by the Paper Studio wedding series, I added rhinestones to the bottom of the dress for added bling.
