flight of the butterfly

butterfly's get a flower treatment - and are perched on top of their matching "shadows". poor picture taking skills!! :-)

5 petal punch

this one was cased from a swap i attended. same great daffodil paper, but i embossed and border punched. cool how you punch the flower out and use a dauber to color it daffodil and a then add dazzling diamond glitter and tiny yellow and white flowers for the center! the birthday is embossed and a tiny flower with a pearl center to hide a boo boo!

fifth ave floral

here is another - the rose from fifth avenue are embossed in white on pacific blue and colored in versa marker. i then added a bit of pearly powder to the edges of some of the petals for a bit of shimmer.

fifth avenue floral

i love simple cards!! they can pack such a punch! this is a flower embossed in white on pink pirouette c/s and simply colored in with a versa marker. the sentiment is embossed in pink.

because i care

this is in regal rose and olive on pretty in pink paper. the birthday wish is embossed. simple and elegant.

elements of style

i have done this in a couple of colors and just can't go wrong with it!!! this is in razzleberry and vanilla.

friends never fade

one of my favorite colors!! baja blue. such a simple card, but very striking!

get whale soon!

this was fun to do - and very colorful! whale from fun and fast notes - watercolored in going grey. pacific point, kiwi and white layers.

get well fun and fast notes

this is one of my favorites - bella birds paper, with bordering blue embossed c/s. accented with saffron ribbon. the stamp was inked and embossed with gold and watercolored. all but the stampset is retired! sniff....

68th lovebirds

i did this for my inlaws 68th anniversary. they are just wonderful and i had a great time with the card! the bashful blue in the bird punch, she is in bride paper and he in groom paper. accented with a veil and a pearl flower, the gold heart was not my first choice, but 68 falls between light blue (60) and platinum (75) for colors - however, gold just looked better!
