Enjoy Life!

I am back in in my craft corner, which is now cleaned and ready to rock and roll! I wanted to make a more romantic and simple card after all the distress classes. At Colour Create the challenge was to follow these wonderful colours (by Kim).
Sky blue, tan and ecru, wonderful colours together, don't you think? So I dressed Tilda in those and I was lucky because my favourite embellishment, the butterfly, had the right colour too!

This was fun making a card in a different size, 4x8" for this weeks challenge at Stamp with fun! I bought this stamp a while ago, cheap, have no idea who made it, but it's really cute. Coloured of course with Copics, this time I stamped on Manga/Copic paper, very thin!The pattern paper is from Basic Grey. I received new Cuttlebugs' embossing borders which I used at the top and bottom. Some stickles, flowers and Voila!

Happy mothers day!

I salute all mothers (including myself) for all their hard work, it's not easy to be a mother but it's worth every single moment! This card is a combo 2 challenges in one! At Colour Create you have to use Red, Cream and Chocolate and at Stamptacular they are celebrating "Mums, the word!"
My little Mimosa painted with Copics is posing for this card, together with papers from Basic Grey and Graphic45. I have found a goldmine here in Kuala Lumpur, a store that sells flowers, ribbons, decorations of all kind, and there I found the flowers and the butterfly.
