Women's Card

Well, I am home with strep throat today and have no energy.  I haven't posted anything here in a while, so wanted to post something.  Here is a card that I did a few weeks ago.  I had to make a women's card for a swap.  I love this new stamp from Stampin Up.  Hope you like it too!

This is a birthday card that I made yesterday for a swap.  I love how it turned out with the pink and the black.  I used some shimmer paint on the wine, which makes it sparkle just a bit.  I used my bow easy to make the bow.  I just love that inexpensive little contraption.  I have really gotten into using my copic marker - C2, to do the shading around images.  I think it provides a little depth.  Let me know what you think of this!

Here is a card that I did for a Vacation Swap.  I couldn't stop thinking of the retreat that I went on recently with some cardmaking friends.  I just had to make this card.  I used muddpuddles to make the sand look like real sand.

Here is a card that I also made on the retreat.  I love this image.  I just love the girl in it and the butterfly on her toes.  The Martha Stewart punches for the butterfly and the trim piece are just great.  These punches really make the card.  Hope you enjoy it.
