Its been quite a week of sadness.. between death of boss's father in law, the friend's 'dog child' that had to be put down and ongoing "oil spill" among my favorite beaches - its been a downer of a week.
To take me out of the moment - I share with you some cards.
CARD NUMBER 1:
Again, another Sage Shadow with the white lined frame around makes for a clean look and then I added the XLFlower punch smooched with Vanilla. The two leaves are cut from the Big Shot Island Die after the CS was put textured using the Textured Plate #4. Then it got 'smooched' too!
CARD NUMBER 2:
I recently received the Elegant Bouquet impressions emblossing folder. I didn't know how to use it, but I thought it added a great touch to the card. I am not crazy about the sheer white ribbon, but like the small flower (Island Floral Die) that adds some dimension to the card.
Card 1: Sage Shadow CS, Rose Red, Old Olive, White Gel Pen, Big shot Island Floral Die (Summer Mini), XL Flower punch, Vanilla Smooch Spritz, rhinestone brad
Card 2: Rose Red, Whisper White, Rose Red, Garden Green CS, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. Island Floral Big Shot Die, petals from two step bird, rhinestone brad
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
