Pink Flowers

I have used lovely Raspberry Road double sided paper for this card and stamped Daisy onto the paper before colouring.

 I distressed the edges and tucked a piece of lace behind the large tear.Then I added a charm heart at the bottom. I used Marianne design die CR1273 Anja's flowers for the pink border and threaded through some deep pink narrow ribbon. I used some sequin embellishments for the centers. Bottom left die cut is from MD die LR0276.

Skateboard Don

I am using the stamp Skateboard Don for the Marianne Design Divas challenge.

I coloured him with Spectrum Noir and framed him with Marianne Design die LR0116. I cut the fence from the same card with MD die LR 0205. The background papers were some scraps that seemed to go together well.
Though you can't tell from the picture the flower is cut with MD die LR 0156 out of brown glove leather to give it a more masculine look and backed with hessian (burlap) then finished with a button center and ribbon.

hello spring

Another Don and Daisy card with the theme of spring. This time I married it with the Make My Monday challenge photo.

I have Daisy on her bicycle with a basket of flowers. This time I coloured her with watercolours rather than pens.

I framed her with a Fleur de Lys die. I used the small die from MD Passe Partout rectangles for the embossed sentiment. I used MD LR0209 to cut tulips in different colors and MD LR0290 for the birds and added some small punched flowers and leaves.

spring tulips

This is a masculine card for the MDD challenge. I used the Handyman Don stamp on Papermania Bellissima paper. Here he is making sure the birds have everything they need for spring.

I used MD dies LR0205, LR0209, CR1291 and CR1242 passe partout rectangle. I stamped the sentiment on the same backing paper.
