For Niece #2


Animal Friends Challenge - Happy Birthday

This is for my niece Jade who is one for more simpler things so that is what I went with. I stamped the dragonflies in blue and embossed it in blue on a green vellum paper. I stamped the Happy Birthday also in blue. I mounted it on this orangy-red card stock and then on this yellowy-green card stock. I coloured in the wings with creatix paint in iridescent  blue and used stickers for the corners. Simple but effective I think.

  3. That is adorable! It must be fun to work on cards for those you love and design them with what you think they might like :)

  5. You do beautiful work. I use to do a lot of stamping cards. I spent a lot on buying the stamps and supplies and then I just got out of the habit. All the stamps and now in boxes out in the garage. I should get them out and get busy again. You are inspiring me to do it again. Keep up your good creative work. Hugs, Lura

  6. The green and blue work perfectly together. The fancy stamp for the sentiment is very elegant too. hugs Mrs A.

  13. It's beautiful. You really have a way with these. She's going to love it and keep it forever. Her kids will find it in her dresser someday, kept with other cherished keepsakes. :-)
