Sketch Saturday + CCThursday+ Crafty Katz+ Fab 'n 'F challenges

Happy Friday my dear blogging friends. I hope your week has been a marvelllous one till now, and hopefully you'll have a lovely weekend as well :)

I have a card to share with you today, a card I finished very recently, and that I made for a special person. I used Our Daily Bread Design Stamps, and I coloured the door image with Copics.

When I finished the colouring I used Baby blue stickles on some points, and I used a needle to highlight the door hinges and knocker with Crystal Lacquer, for some dimension.

Hopefully you see the Lacquer on the hinges here.

The papers I used were lying in my 8x8 folder, and I thought the door will look great with some blue and grey tones around. To embellish the card, I used some Prima and Papermania flowers, and some Basic Grey brads for a nice touch. The ribbon and lace are from my stash. Leaves are done with a Martha Stewart punch. On the flowers I used Stardust Stickles, which can be found here.

I hope you like my card, and you let me know what you think. Thank you for visiting me today, I am very grateful and thankful. Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope you come and visit me again.

Challenges for this card:

Sketch Saturday: Sketch used
Cute Card Thursday: Someone Special
Crafty Kaz: Petals and Pearls
Fab 'n Funky: Metal Mania (brads)

With Wings as Eagles

Hello everyone! And happy Thursday to each and everyone one of you!! I hope you're having the best of the week, and that you're all keeping well.

Today I have a card for these two lovely challenges: I have used the sketch done by lovely Jacque, on Friday's Sketchers, and I used the pink and green combo from Totally Gorjuss.

I made this special card for a special person, and I do hope she'll like it :) I used Sultry papers from Basic Grey, and Coredinations cardstock. I also used flowers from my stash (but the large rose was sent to me by my lovely friend Jacque. I distressed its edges with Peeled Paint Distress ink, and gave her a Pearl Glimmer Mist treatment).

This is a close up of my eagle.. coloured with Copics.

As you can see, I also used Gold Stickles, and brown colooured square brads, and light pink half pearls. I stamped both the Scripture verse and the eagle, from ODB stamps, with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, I like the soft effect.
I hope you like it, and that you have the best rest of the week!
