Especially for you

Good morning everyone :-) I can not believe it is already Thursday! Only 7 more school weeks and than it is already summer break for the children! This was fast!

Well… today’s card is made for our new challenge over on Cute Card Thursday. The theme for this week is “From boys to men”. My gosh.. i had a really tough time with that one! What cute card can you give a man… i must say i was about to just skip this challenge.. but that’s why it is called a challenge, right?! So i gave it a try.

This image was stamped for me from my dear friend Jacque a while ago. It is Prom Edwin from the new Wedding Collection. I thought this could maybe be a card that a mother could give her son to a special occasion. The card first was “finished” with out the white flower but than i stamped the sentiment on and of course i had a tiny black spot which i was able to cover with the leaves of the flower. I think it still works and it is not to obvious.


Stamps: Prom Edwin “Wedding 2010”, Sentiment: Especially for you

Papers: My Minds Eye (Home Spun – 6x6 pad)
Embellishments: Paper Doily (Dollar store), Swirls (Prima Marketing), Ribbons (Stampin up / white satin, Mellow Moss Taffeta)
Coloring: Copic Sketch
Tools: Fiskars border punch

Don’t forget tomorrow we are celebrating 2 year anniversary on our Friday Challenge blog! Come and visit us to see what we have prepared for you :-)
