Kissing Couple


Hello Friends,
Here is one more card I made last week as per my friend request. This is to give to her boyfriend, so had to be very romantic one!

Green color is his favourite color, so I made it in green.  This gorgeous paper I received from my kind friend Pat Smith. 
As it is for a boy had to be simple one so I decided to make an easel card!


Here is a closer view on the image:



Images are Tilda and Edwin from Magnolia Stamps and I've colored both of them with copic markers, on the grass I used flower soft and the bird I made it 3D.  To embellish the card I put heart shaped brads on each corner and green silk ribbon.

Take a closer look at the bird:


I can tell you that my Friend's Boyfriend liked the card very much!!    I'm really glad about it!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Six Girlfriends


Hello Friends,

I had a really difficult challenge for me!! I was asked to make a card with 6 different Tildas representing  each one of the 6 girlfriends...    
OMG, it took me 4 1/2 hours to finish this card.  But I can say now , I'm pleased with it!!!
And the most important thing, my Friend love it!!! She is going to give to her girlfriend as it is her birthday!!  This is different friend from the one I made a card couple of days ago!!!

Anyway, she asked to do not put any sparkle, gem, nothing.....   for me it is a hard task as I adore embellishing the cards with rhinestones and others... heheh

I had to use a plain cardstock beucase I thought it would be too much wiht a pattern cardstock  and as I didn't had much room to work with a sketch I decide to do a simple one...

Just got  this gorgeous green plain cardstock that I received from Gail, a bit shining..  couldn't resisit hehehe

I colored all Tildas and logs with copcis markers...   used flower soft for the grass and little flowers are Magnolia. I put a very tiny half adhesive pearl in each corner..

I really liked it and you????

Leave a comment and let me know, ok?!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hugs,

Vivi
