Congratulations to a Mayor

This is the second card this week.
Made for a new Mayor. Used a long time to find suitable elements for this card... I have used a piece of a cinnamon roll, and decorated it with a small heart charm. And the charm is painted with pearl dabber.. So is the swirls, doilie and key and flowers.
I have for the first time made a Pebble!!! I did change the colour a little bit..

The Pebbles is made by Kristine
And she has used Sentimens made by Raindrop Echo Design

The Beautiful stamp I have used on the inside of the card is from Stempelglede.
And the Photos are from the internet.
Edges and papers are distessed with Distress Ink , Walnut Stain.
Edge Punch is from Martha Stewart.

This is my second card for this following Challenge:

Vintage Utfordring # 30 Monokromatisk 15.10.11 -29.10.11


New Job! Congratulations

A closeup of the detail in front

Inside of the card..  -Panels are loose...  They should be written on.. -before glued inside. Because of the bumpy front.

I made a few cards earlier this week.. - This is one of them.
I had to make a card for a man... .. Not the easiest card to make..for me.. But I ended up with this card! I used a tiny bit of Brown Bazzill for the letters and one tiny bit behind the sign. All of the other papers are  just white sketch book paper, that is colored with Distress Ink. Walnut Stain..
I have used A LOT of different stamps for the background.. Most of them are form North Star Stamps. A few of the cars though are from

I am entering this card in following Challenge:

Yesterday (saturday) i managed to make a card for a few challenges .. A bit in a hurry.. My sister asked me if I had a card for a 40th birthay ... and i said that I didn´t have any finished cards. but I might manage to make a card yesterday afternoon... And I did...   the paint and glue had to dry, while she was writing on the inside panels... -that i glued in after.. And I managed to take a few photos in under my craftroom lamp... in a hurry... .. I noticed today... that my camera has wrong date... And today sunday it is 01.10 2011... and my camera already had the 03. october... uuuups...  and I guess that it has been like that for about 6 months... when it was brand New... .. Not funny.. All of my photos has the wrong date since then... grrrrrrr...

It is not often that i follow a sketch ... But this time I did.. I followed Jane´s Great sketch!!..
And I mush say.... it was fun... and not as hard as I thought it was... :o).. - quite proud of myself..
And I have also done something New... I have never painted papers, flowers and diecuts with a dabber before... -that was fun.. And made a great effect.. I used a pearl one... And the Paper doilie became lovely with this paint... :o)

The image was fun to paint... -I have been looking for this old hÄnglar stamp for ages... And I was thrilled when I found it... Lucky me!!! :o)
