2 Birthday Cards one with Woodland Animals & one with Flowers

Two of my "OLD" friend (it means I knew them since I started to join Hero Arts Flickr 2009) from Hero Arts Flickr has birthday at middle of this month June and I must make cards for these two lovely ladies...Dawn and Dotty Jo (Jo Avery). Ok first card I made for Dawn:

If I am not wrong remember Dawn like some kind of cards with woodland images.  Dear Dawn this card is for you, I will send to you soon and hope it come soon to your home :)

Supplies: the tree is Die Cut from Pia (many many thanks sweet Pia for this lovely tree die cut), The Fox I did exchange my stamping image with a lady, and I used again the cloud stencil from Billie. (dear Billie always so happy to use your cloud stencil it is a wonderfull tool :) )

Challenges for my first card are:

Scrapper´s Delights Challenge Blog #45: Always Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Crafting From The Heart Challenge #63: Anything Goes (1/3)(sdh a. p.)

Seize The Birthday: The Toppings is ANIMAL (3/3)(sdh a. p.)


AAA Cards Challenge game #41: Woodland Animals



The second card is for Jo, I know she can coloring her images sooo beautiful and perfect and I am not so good at coloring flower...this time I try my best to coloring this flower Images from Create a Smile stamp named Botanical Love.

How I made my card:

1. I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.
2. Then I choose the color from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set and started from the middle of the flower to get a darker colors and after the colors are dry I took a bit the colors with water to the outside area of the flowers. 
3. Same prosedure with other flowers and leaves.
4. The sentiment I embossed with white embossing powder too and Iits only because I wanted to close the bad area on there with black cardstock :)

I LOVE THIS FLOWER STAMP SO MUCH....it helped me to make a good flower card..as I must confess I am not good at coloring flower images :) (silly me)

Sister Act Challenge #109: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

  39. Both cards are wonderful. Your woodland scene is so perfect for the AAA Cards Woodland game. Love your sky and those tree dies are now on my list! Thanks for linking up and playing with us at AAA Cards.

  40. Both cards are awesome - and it is so nice to know that you are making them for your amazing card-making friends! Your fox card is stunning and really stands out in the AAA gallery! The scene you created is so much fun - thanks for playing along with us! Jill

  41. I thought you’d like to know your project has been showcased as one of my weekly Fav on my Feature Friday post today! Thank you for being a follower of all things beautiful. Take care and enjoy your weekend. Amy A. http://alllthingsbeautiful.blogspot.com/2015/06/feature-friday-6262015.html

  42. Ptetty cards Monika. Love them both.

  43. That woodland card is so darn cute! It can be tricky to find a spot for a sentiment with this kind of scene, but I think you solved it so elegantly with that speech bubble. The flower card you made so colorful and elegant, lots of colors and stamps can end up looking a bit busy, but this card is perfectly balanced.


I really appreciate your comments, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my Blog :)
