Thinking of you

Hi there!

Still cold out here in Abu Dhabi... can you believe that it snowed in some of the mountainous regions over the weekend! Snow in the desert... 😲

 I stayed warm by making a card!


A closer look:


When I saw the beautiful inspiration photo over at The card concept , I remembered about a Parisian inspired patterned paper pack I received ages ago with a Quick Cards magazine, and Karren's sketch at Freshly made sketches provided the perfect layout to put that paper to good use!

I added a sentiment  (Avery Elle , color box ink)

&

A die cut heart  (Die from Sizzix -  embossed with Celebrate embossing folder form Couture Creations).

Rectangle pinpoint dies from Memory Box.
Pink fun foam for extra dimension on the rectangles.

Pink and gold rhinestones as a finishing touch!



                                             

Also playing along at Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge ~ Color of LOVE.

Thanks for looking!

Have a great week 💕
Hannelie

The papers you used are so pretty, and they all coordinate beautifully. The embossing folder you used on your die-cut is gorgeous. It adds such elegance to a simple shape.

Sneeuw in de woestijn, wat apart! je kaart vind ik erg mooi, de strips verhoogd en dan het geemboste hart, het geeft een mooi effect!

It is hard to imagine snow in the desert, but at a higher elevation... I adore this card, and love the sketch. Pretty, soft colors. Your CAS always looks perfect!

So soft and pretty and I love the hint of pink from the fun foam behind the panels.
It's been "cold" here too - down in the high 50s/low 60s. No snow but chilly enough for me!

So pretty! I love everything about this card - embossed heart, soft colors and papers too. Bottom rectangle has a postal stamp in old-Russian :-)

Karren said...

This is so pretty! The patterned papers are so soft and sweet and work beautifully with that gorgeous heart.

O, vrou, ek het vergeet om te se ek's bly vir julle vir die koeligheidjie, maar ek kan net dink dat die stof nie baie aangenaam kan wees nie!!! 28 in die winter - ek sal maar moeilik aanpas daar!!!!! En nou nog sneeu ook op die berge - moes 'n wonderlike ervaring gewees het vir die woestynmense!!!!!
En hier het jy alweer 'n pragstuk met wonderlike skoon en vars lyne en ek's mal oor die roomkleur en die strokies papier wat jy gebruik het!!!! Die embossing op die hart is so slim om net nog so 'n ekstra bietjie wow by te sit!!!!! Hierdie kaartjie het vir my so 'n rustige en vredevolle gevoel aan hom - tog te pragtig!!!!
Groete, Petra XX
