You Are Picture Perfect ~ You are so Special Collection

Hi, good morning everyone.
Iam so excited to be able to show you this card today. I really like how it turned out. I must say i was worried about the “mustard” yellow in this designer paper but at the end when all the pieces together on my table i really worked.

Thought a gatefold card would be a nice compliment to the focal point image, where i used Leaning Tilda together with the very sweet window. This card has been sold and than i always leave the ends of my ribbons longer than usual, because it makes it easier for an other person to bind a nice bow. You can find a nice selection of Silk ribbons at The Ribbon Girl.

okay… look what i noticed just when the picture was taken… two strayed peal stickers got stuck at the bottom right corner from my craft table :-)

your colouring is amazing x

Tanya said...

gorgeous! I am loving the colors, that paper is beautiful. Your coloring always amazes me.

Diane said...

This is sooooo gorgeous, Claudia! I was going to buy this image first from this collection and then hesitated because of the window bars inside the shutters. Now that I can see your card, I realise that it doesn't matter at all that the window bars are there because they're almost completely hidden by the image! Alternatively, I suppose I could always cut the centre of the image away.... I think I'm off to Sir Stampalot!!

Danielle Champagne said...

ABSOLUMENT MAGNIFIQUE! Tilda looks as though she is saluting a new day, a wonderful one, full of love. Once again, you did magic, Claudia, if you had any doubts about the mustard color, it vanished, cause everything looks perfect, in harmony. I love the flowers at the bottom of the card, just as if the garden is below the window sill. Now.. I have regrets of not having bought this little cutie! it's on my wish list now!
TFS... it made me very happy!
Have a wondeful day. Hugs. Danielle.
