ADFD Challenge #34 - Pastel Colours

For this challenge I have used the image 'Flower Blossom' -
a freebie given for this challenge, although any of Tammy's images
can be used.  I took the image, and using PS, I copied the flower
and added two more, moving them around to make a more
interesting picture.  I also added grass.  I used Nestabilities
Lacey Ovales around the image, and threaded ribbon through
the holes.  For the edging I used Edgeabilities Classic Triple
Scallop.  The yellow spotted background is from a Quite Contrary
Paper Pad.  The brad is from Recollections.  I used gold shiny
shelf paper behind the Edgeabilities and paper pieced the
flowers.  Tip: if you use this shelf paper as matting, stick it to
thick cardstick before cutting out.

A Card For My Granddaughter Yehela

Yehela is five this week and this is the card I made for her.
As you will see, I have used the same cardstock as in my
previous card.  Well, the cardstock was out already and
anyway I like the colours.

I Googled the fairy and around the image I used Nestabilities
Labels Twenty-Two. I paper pieced the fairy a little and
added sparkle to her wings.  I inked around the label.
On the green cardstock I used a Cuttlebug  embossing
folder. I wish manufacturers would put the name of the
folders on the folders themselves as I don't remember
all the names of the embossing folders all the time! I
then went around the green cardstock with a distressing
tool by Tom Holtz.  The sentiment I made on Word.
As my granddaughter is into fairies and princesses I
hope she will like my card.  I have also made a scrapbook
page for her, and this I will put up soon.

A Card For Vickie - From Nana Vic's

Here is a card that I made for Vickie, who is a bit under 
the weather at the moment and her keen followers decided 
to make cards for her to cheer her up.  The cards will be 
sent to her, as well as posted on her site at CDAC, 
which is a wonderful site for those interested in digi stamps.
The delightful digi image is by Vickie, and coloured on the 
computer. Not much to explain about this card. I like the 
green and red together. I went around the green cardstock 
matting the image and the with a distressing tool and used a 
Cuttlebug embossing folder "Swiss Dots" on the red 
cardstock. I did the sentiment on Word and used the green 
brad from my stock. I coloured the flower to match the colour 
on the little girl's dress and paper pieced the image.
