PPA-Elements of Style Challenge

This week's challenge  was Elements of Style---Bows challenge at Pals Paper Arts this week! How easy is that! Just make your card, keep it simple, and add a bow!  My inspiration was a card I already made for another challenge, I cas my own card and added a bow that I made using Ann Schach cardboard bow maker. With my Fibromyalgia sometimes it is hard to make smaller bows and I thought I would give her bow maker a whirl and it helped and I love it. So thank you Ann.  Ever sometimes look a your card and think something was missing, well I did and I love this card but I love it evern more with the bow. So here it is and let me know which one you prefer.

Vintage Love

I saw a different version of my card in a issue of Card making Mag. but I didn't have any Valentine Day dsp so I made my own using Elements of Style, Because I care stamp sets and coloring the flowers using SU markers and aqua painter. This gives a watercolor effect. Then I used SU new Distressed Kit to give it an aged look. I then used SU Scallop Trim Border punch, wrap alittle lace around, add alittle twine. Then I used the Scallop circle punch to make a flower. Added  some pearls and wha-la done. I loved using the distressed inks and making this card while helping my granddaughter with hers. In all it was a fun day. I hope you enjoy my version and leave me a comment.

Oh so cold Friday....

It got done to 5 below and windchill of 10-15 brrr. this Friday morning. So me and the grandchildren(guess they are still children at 18 and 19) made Blueberry pancakes and my grandaughter and I had a cardmaking day. Heather wanted to make her boyfriend a card. She got a kick out going through my stuff finding what she wanted, then designing the card.   Her only comment was wow grandma, I didn't know there are so many layers to this card. It came out awesome, and I hope you agree. This is her first attempt (with help from grandma) at making a card.
