JustRite Challenge

Hello friends,

Today I am submitting a card to a JustRite Challenge Vintage Masculine. Perfect timing for a Fathers' Day card!!! For this challenge I used JustRite's You Are the Best cling stamp set, coloured it with KOI markers on watercolour paper, distressed the edges of a background layer and inked them up with Vintage Photo distress ink (same ink is used on the yellow layer underneath the ribbon image), added punched out with MS "punch anywhere" punch Canine background lattice, added some ribbon and the card is done! Diecutting of the image pieces was done with Spellbinders petite scalloped circles, and Blossom Three (perfect combo with the JustRite stamp set I used for this card!).

Thank you so much for visiting, and here is my card:

Flowers in a Pot for Mom

Hi there,

I'm posting a card today that I made for my mom's birthday (this week!). She loves gardening and the moment I saw Mo Manning's image Sadie, I knew it would make a PERFECT birthday card for my mom. Sadie even looks like my mom :-) Stamping Bella has this image in rubber, and I'm submitting it to this week's Bellarific Friday, where we were to use this sketch:
The second challenge I'm entering my card to is Mo Manning's Weather-related one. Blooming roses say "SUMMER" to me :-) though the first day of summer is just dreadful here in Toronto...
The third challenge (wow, that's a record for me!) I'm entering my card into is Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes (gotta love "open doors" challenges!!!) challenge.

Thank you for dropping by! And here is my card:
