My DH and I went to Ireland a year ago in celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary and I took a gazillion pictures. The picture on this card is of the entrance to St. Kevin's Abby. I printed it on watercolor paper and cut the edges with dekle edged scissors to make it look like a photo edge (the way they used to when I was young - although they had a white border then also! does anyone else remember that?). I layered the photo to a cuttled panel and a DP panel, sponged everything in Close to Cocoa and added these great new Prima artful flowers and leaves. Aren't these flowers beautiful? and I love how the picture printed on the watercolor paper - it looks almost three dimensional here don't you think?

My second card was made for the Limited Supplies Challenge - to use a knot on your card.
I attached the ribbon to the back of the panels and then used a shorter piece and knotted it around the flat ribbon twisting it so the dots showed on each end of the knot. I cut the circles with my nestabilities and added dew drops on a few flower. This pretty paper by Die Cuts with a View has glitter already on the flower centers - don't know if you can see that in the picture.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations - I'll be checking out your blogs too - leave me a comment so I can hope over to see you! Have a great night!
