Picture this..

Hello, how is everyone today ? It's funny how things happen; the day I received these beautiful G45 Communiqué papers that I won  from the extremely generous Alda at the Flying Unicorn, hubby asked me to make a card for his best friend's daughter's Birthday saying she loves photography....

Well, was I a happy card maker !


I prepared my cardboard with paint, inka-gold and gold embossing; I painted and embossed the
 K and Co. Chipboard.



Sprayed my flower with gold GM, added metal leaves...




This is the pull out tag... cool eyes huh ?, crimped the film strip, inked, stamped, embossed, added
inka-gold...and used this gorgeous button my girlfriend sent me...


And on the inside...isn't this flower scrumptious...I just love it...Embossed the HB...







And her name on hanging film strips...you know, like in a darkroom...

Best part ? Hubby, who finds I put too much on most of my cards, LOVED it !!!

oh, and this is one of her gifts...an antique camera lighter, isn't that the coolest; she doesn't smoke, but I am sure she will love it...



Bye, have a fabulous week-end !!! xoxooxox
