This month's Blog Hop was to make a card from inspiration or technique learned from someone else's blog. I chose my friend Sara. http://theunhurriedlife.blogspot.com/2010/09/happy-birthday-nadine.html
Sara is an amazing card maker. I loved the card she made for Nadine's birthday and I wanted to give it a go. I stamped the Larkspar (PTI) image in cloud white chalk Versa Magic ink, and colored the image with colored pencils. I added some sparkle with a purple Sakura glitter pen. It looks very elegant in person, but I don't think you can see the glam in the photo. I wanted a very elegant card for a young couple who were recently married, so I added the Mr and Mrs sentiment to the bottom of the card. Since it was a wedding card I did want a little bit more Wow, so I added some sheer black ribbon, JoAnn Craft Essentials around the image tied in a bow and added a half pearl, K and Companyto center.
Please let me know what you think, I just love to receive your comments. Enjoy the hop and enjoy your weekend.
