Happy Birthday Card with Audrey and Roses Birthday Card in Gold & Red plus Santa Christmas Card

So many red, white and blue challenge out there :) This time is not patriotic card but I used that color combo on my Audrey Card. I started to colored it with Akashiya SAI and the skin is colored with Copic marker.

Then I sponged the background with Blue Distress Ink, the sentiment is PTI and I added doted red paper at the bottom for her ground :)

My boss also ordering a card with Rose for his wife birthday...I hope she will like this....I simply stamped and gave Gold embossing powder on each roses and leaves and I also Embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. 

The Sentiment is PTI and the flower stamp is old Hero Arts collection of mine. I colored my image with Akashiya SAI.

One more picture of my card, here you can see that in reality the card is so shiny with all the gold on it :)

  1. Another fabulous woman card a la Audrey, I so love this image. You make it look different each time even though you use many of the same materials and keep it simple.
    Your second card looks fantastic! Of course your boss and his wife will love this. The roses are beautifully arranged and the gold is very effective.

  2. Two simply stunning cards...truly love that sassy classy lady, your coloring and style match her so well. Just beautiful. And your rose card, so my, those beautiful roses. Hope you are doing well!

  4. This lime kind of green is very unusual but how fantastic it looks! I'm trying to make more non traditional colored cards this year, I don't want people to receive too similar cards each year. Haven't thought of bringing in lime green yet, but it's going on my to do list. Your card is colorful and fun and different, yet with a traditional flair.

  5. Love that you added gold with your roses card! So glad you loved the colors that you created another card! :-)

  6. You have been a busy bee Monika, lovely set of cards, I love the first one though, it is colored so well.

  7. Wonderful cards, Monika! The Audrey card is gorgeous - I can't seem to get the hang of watercolour but your colouring looks awesome! The rose card is very pretty and I bet your boss and his wife loved it! The gold embossing is so pretty! And your Santa card is so cute! I like your old stash of patterned papers!
