Dark but cute...

TGIF!

This will be a short and sweet post... today is my last working day of 2011 and so far I'm running a bit behind. Perhaps I should make a resolution about better time management in 2012, LOL! ;)

Something about this card turned out kinda dark but I'm still diggin' it. I used one of the Pergamano flower girls and just trimmed her out from her surrounding flowers so that she could sit on the ribbon. She looks a little lonely so I'm thinking this could work as a sympathy or "cheer up" kind of card. I was even feeling all crafty like by making some coordinating rolled roses out of the reverse side of the black text paper.

Alrighty, well I suppose I should go do the hair and make-up thing. Have a great weekend everybody!

Good morning Amy. I love this card. She does look like she is in deep thought, but for some reason your papers and your coloring along with you flowers all just work to make your card look fantastic. Seriously this is just beautiful. I hope that you have a wonderful Friday and a very Happy New Year. Hugs

I love it. So pretty and soft looking. The flowers rock!

Marianne said...

Oh Amy, I love everything about this card: the colour combo, layout, flowers. Always wonder, though, how those flowers will cope in the envelope, lol.
I know what you mean about time management. I could do with a lot of improvement in that area. As a freelance translator sitting at my computer all day, I find it quite a challenge to separate work and pleasure.
Have a great weekend!

Andrea said...

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
