HEART AND SOUL


Hello,  time  to  create again

I needed a birthday card  for  a  special  young lady,  I choose to love  her 26  years ago  , and in return I got a lot of  love and  happy memories... 



I used a  gift  image  and choose some pretty DP  and colored  that image  to match or coordinate   with colored  pencils, then  a blender pen, my favorite way to  color... 
I  love the SU label dies  and  I used some clear liquid  gloss on the flowers to  make them shiny.  And a piece of  velvet ribbon  to make the color pop  ... This card is  5 x 6 1/2  inches. 




Again I love square cards...  this one  opens  in the  center  ..
I used some  blush colored  card stock  against the  black  card, I think it  makes a nice contrast... 
I used Sizzix  label # 18  dies,  some  ribbon in my stash, that was purchased to go with the  blush card stock   and then soaped a fun butterfly  in  blush  , just to add  some  thing  so  it was  not so plain...  The double layer of labels  is  attached  only to the left side  so the card  opens  ...This card is 5 1/2  x  5 1/2  and  really an easy and quick card...It will be  going out to a special lady .

  Well there  you have it,  the first card is  way out of my  comfort zone, but I love the way it turned out...soft and pretty... 
 I  love the quote, at the  top oft the post...It is so me...  I love  to create...but  need that  push ...

Thanks  for stopping  by,  Come  back  soon... Have a great week... And  SMILE

til next time,  waving  
Sonja

  12. Pretty cards, Soni. The bicycle is really pretty with all the flowers overflowing. I'd love to find an old bicycle and do just that as a focal point in one of my flower beds.
    Hugs and Blessings
