Heartfelt Fun

I really like the way this card turned out, especially since it wasn't lookin' very pretty for a little while there. I started with some inspiration from Splitcoast and then since I didn't have a color she used on her card I started improvising. And for those that don't know this, it takes me FOREVER to create a card on my own. After multiple trials I eventually came out with this combo. I hope you enjoy it!
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks, Linen Background, French Script Background
Paper: Whisper White, Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana
Markers for the flowers: rose red, regal rose, barely banana, summer sun, sage shadow, garden green
Ink: Chocolate chip, Close to Cocoa for slight shading over flowers, Sage Shadow
Accessories: chocolate grosgrain ribbon, black brad

Sparkling Wedding Cake

This is a card I had for a card club. I really like the sparkles on the edge of the cake. This is a favorite of mine.
More details on the card soon...

Peaceful Flowers


I am making these for a convention my friend is speaking at.

I got the butterfly idea from barefootstamper.com

To make the butterfly I stamped it twice and then glued them back to back, cut them to match better, and finally used my Rose Red marker to color the edges. I then used a glue dot to hold the butterfly securely to the flower. I have been wanting to use this flower for a while now, and I like how it turned out. I used my markers for the flowers, to give them a two-toned effect.
