FS # 34....Sealed with a Kiss!!!

I made this card following the sketch at Friday Sketchers and this fabulous sketch is by the very talented, Kristine.

I decided to venture outside the box (for me anyways) and made this long card. I pretty much always make 6x6 square cards but this was a nice change!

I stamped Tilda and Edwin on Georgia Pacific paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, coloured them with my Copics and cut them out. I think Edwin looks very spiffy! Doesn't he?! I rather like him in a pink shirt, smile!!! Now this Tilda is so precious and look she's passing Edwin a little love letter...how sweet!!!

I made the card base from a sheet of Core'dinations cardstock and used some scraps of this pretty Daisy Buckets paper. I used my Tim Hotlz distressing tool to rough up the edges of the pp. I attached the two panels with silver cord that I bought for Christmas cards and never used. It was perfect for this card though as there is a bit of silver in the pattern paper. I also ran a bit of the silver cord up the side of the card and knotted it at the top. The sentiment is from a Studio G set from Micheals and I added 3 Prima flowers to the top, as per, the sketch and used MM heart brads in the centre of them!

Thanks for dropping by and having a wee peek!!!

Thanks for the award Tara!
I LOVE this card-it is so cute. I love that you made a different shape/size card...I'm so used to making the 6x6-it's fun to try something different.
Love how you color in your images.
Where do you get your twinkling h2o's and how what colors should one start out with?

Hi Tara

Love this card and the colour combo you have used, so bright and colourful - I love it. I also love the white flower with the red writing, not seen any of these before.

Absolutely gorgeous.
