Green & Blue again

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, my niece asked for a green and blue card, so this is the second of her two green and blue cards she'll be getting - if you ask shall receive ;-)

I made this card for my mom to give to my niece, and it took me forever to come up with the layout, does it show - hehehe..... I know my '9' is not too clear, but I actually liked it that way. I didn't want it to stand out too much, otherwise it overpowers everything else about the card.

I coloured this little Magnolia with my prismacolor pencils and blended it with Sansador. I cut the image out and then mounted it on 3D dots. The blue mat was out lined with a silver pen. I had to do something to break the blue on blue.

That's it for the weekend, can't believe it is Monday again tomorrow. So sad, but at least if the time goes by quickly it means I get nearer and nearer to summer - whoooohooo - can't wait!!!

Mother's day was good today. I managed to make breakfast without burning anything. My mom loved her cards, and her gift, which was a CD of a local Afrikaans singer, called Theuns Jordaan. I'm pretty sure none of you have ever heard of him, he does have some good songs.

Off to bed I go... till next time, have a great week.

Love your Mathilda! She is beautifully colored! Green and blue is my favorite colour combination. Good choice! Paula sees a number 5 blending in with the paper! I guess it blends in well.... LOL I agree with you, better not have the number stand out too much. This is perfect!
