Today's cards (yes, 2!! can you believe it??LOL)....



Good Wednesday Morning!! I have two cards to share with you today!! Only by accident though :-) I was working on my card for the Great Swaps Girls sketch challenge and printed the sketch out...and came up with the top card (ruby red). So I go to post last night and realized I used the same set as Jessie. Sorry Jessie, but don't you just love this set?? :-) Anyway, I felt I needed to make another card! I had fun making both...but the bloomin beautiful card is my favorite!! My DH likes the Live your dream card best. I watercolored the bloomin beautiful image and the bee. The bee has been pop dotted, I really like how it stands out on the card. For the flowers from the Live Your Dream set I used a blender pen and reinkers to apply the color. I then cut the flower out and trimmed the stems and then used dimensionals so they pop off the card. Enjoy!!! Have a great day everyone!!!
Blessings
Vickie

Love both of the cards! I love seeing the Bloomin' Beautiful flowers coloured as something other than hydrangeas (which is where I seem to get stuck!). I LOVED this sketch challenge too:)
