I made this for two reasons, one I wanted to make a special card for my friend Gina who just bought her first place, and two for the Priscilla Midnight Madness Challenge.

I used pretty in pink as my base, then layered it with Pink pirouette. I ran it thru the cb. I used certain celery as my mat, and stamped the reeds from Inspired by Nature in celery.

I used my markers for the flowers, regal rose, rose red and certain celery. I stamped my butterfly and bee in black, then used glitter gel pen to give it some shine. I added barely banana to the bee.

Gina really likes pink, so I wanted to reflect that in the card that I made. I also hand painted a birdhouse just for her. Seeing that she is a homeowner, she should have some of the same perks as a home owner, watching pretty birds in the backyard. I hope she likes it.

I made this for the Our Creative Corner challenge to make a black and white textured card.
I also made this because I just found out that my brother's stepson, his wife and child were in a very bad accident. His wife who is very much pregnant is in the hospital.
I know they are faithful people, so I thought this card would bring comfort in their time of need. Their car was completely destroyed along with the new car seat and their childs car seat. They were very lucky. God was definitely on their side.

I made this card for Pricilla's Midnight madness challenge. I had no idea what colors I would use, so I just opened the drawer and started perusing over my colors.

I chose mellow moss as my base, with accents of pale plum and perfect plum mats.

I found some great dp that had those colors in them, so I used that to dress the card up a bit.

Out of the same packet, there was another floral and the reverse was this dark plaid which I loved, so I turned it to show the plaid.

My butterfly is thump-n-rolled in pale plum and perfect plum.

I had this ribbon that just seemed to go perfectly so I added that, then added the square jewels to the corner.

Hope you like it.
