Today I am sharing a card with you that I am sending to Julia, my older daughter. This year she decided that on top of swimming, she also wanted to take tennis lessons. She seems drawn to tennis. So I couldn't resist this stamp when Kathy sent me the link (she's much better at knowing what is coming out than I am). The girl even LOOKS like my daughter...nice beautiful round face with brown hair. :)
The card is CASEd from a card I pulled from Pinterest. This artist makes beautiful cards! Her card is beautiful and elegant...I wanted that same design but wanted something sparkly (of course) and colorful. It sort of looks now like it has too much color, but I think Julia will like it. What I had in mind was the middle circles to be a rising sun, the blue sparkly paper to be the sky and the green ribbon to be an abstract representation of grass. There are also lots of sparkly accents: on the clouds, red butterfly, on the tennis racket and inside the sun (orange section). Notice the subliminal message sent with all the hearts in this? No, I wasn't drinking while I was doing this!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am entering this card into LEJ Designs challenge #13 "Bling bling"
