Happy Birthday Sandie!

Hi friends!

I'm here today to share a birthday card I made for my good friend Sandie. Happy birthday hon! Sandie likes purples and pinks so these were the obvious color choices for her card! 

This SSS flower is colored in with polychromos pencils. I don't own them (yet!!!) but I got to try them from my friend Milla when she was visiting a couple of weeks ago. I LOVED coloring in with the pencils and I think I did pretty well considering this was my first attempt with them ever! Since i already had the flower pre-colored this card came together very fast. I wanted to add some black for contrast and make a simple card for Sandie's CAS loving heart! The stitched fishtail dies come from MFT.

(the fishtails were cut from snippets and also the flowers were stamped and cut out of left over pieces of coloring paper!)

  5. Hi Nonni, What a beautiful card and such amazing coloring with the polychromos pencils. I love the clean lines on the card and how the flower is placed against the black background. Its so sweet of you to make this for Sandie and i am sure she is going to love it. Very pretty take on the theme 'Inspired by Nature'. Thank you for playing along with us at AAACards challenge. Happy Crafting. Hugs-Bharati

  7. Well done with your first time ever using pencils, Nonni! Your flower is gorgeous and you did a stellar job of showcasing it for our little birthday friend, Sandie! She loved it, I'm sure!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Fabulous! Super floral card and I’m sure Sandie was delighted to receive it. Thanks for playing along with the Inspired by Nature Challenge at AAA Cards

  9. Gorgeous card and you already coped brilliantly with the polychromos pencils. I adore mine - and a touch of Sansodor solution to blend with right at the end is handy. I personally don't think your gorgeous colouring needs it at all.
