Grandparents Day 2010 card.


Sweet as Strawberries.


This adorable image is by Mo Manning and can be bought at Mo's Digital Pencil.

I downloaded this image especially today, as 1. it looks like my two girls when they were that age, and 2. I bought the My Minds Eye DP's only yesterday, as I liked it. It came as a 12 x 12inch cardstock with the dark pink edging, which I trimmed off to make the frame. The image has been coloured with my Promarkers. It was printed onto white card but it looked too crisp and fresh next to the yellow of the papers, so I coloured the white ivory to soften it a little. The pink flower had a pink glittered centre so I applied glossy accents to cover it and sprinkled over with red glitter.  The sentiment was printed on the computer and coloured over in ivory again, to co-ordinate. The outline was glittered to match the inside of the flower, and lace, a couple of pins and pearls finish off the look.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for looking. Take care xxx
