An Elegant Card and our New Prime Minister


This has been a busy week. So busy I forgot to post a card yesterday! The weather is so nice we have been going for long walks and just enjoying this record breaking warm weather.

We had a federal election last month and our new Prime Minister was sworn in this week. Here is our new Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.

So many people are talking about what a hottie he is (he's married with children) but personally I just hope he is as good a leader for Canada as he was while campaigning. He is easy on the eyes though, I have to admit.....but only if you like them tall, dark and handsome!

I have a pile of Christmas cards made and waiting to be photographed but too busy to do it yet. So today’s card is a wedding card I recently made.

This card did not photograph as well as I hoped it would so you will have to take my word for it – it’s beautiful and elegant. The cake and doves were stamped on white cardstock with VersaMark and then white embossing powder and heat set it. The doves were just an outline so I filled the bodies in with a VersaMark pen and white embossing powder and heat set them. Using chalk, I sponged pink around each flower swag and then green for the leaves and some light blue around the edges….. and extended some of the chalk into the background – but lighter in value. The swirl at the top left is from a Cuttlebug small die. The tag (Little B die) at the bottom is popped up with dimensional glue dots. The sentiment was stamped in light blue. This was mounted on a white card base and then the sequins were glued on.

That’s all for a nice warm Thursday, (but chance of thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow and then back to cooler temperatures).

Cheers

Violet

Whew! We had a round of thunderstorms come thru last night. Living in CA for three years i'am definitely not used to thunderstorms. It was a doozy and not even a bad one. Hubs , me and Jinx were all cuddled together listening to it. :) It is hard to get a good read on that card Violet. But i have no doubt it is gorgeous...kind a like your new Prime Minister! :) Hugs! deb
