How is that for a price! WOW!

My card this week was quite challenging I thought. I did actually made two before I was able to make one that I was satisfied with. Then I took about a hundred pictures of it, dragging it all around the house for good lightening. I guess I did not do the best job of it, because it still is a bit shiny. But it will just have to be good enough this time.

I got to use this faboulus Arabella image from D'amore Allure. Isn't she beautiful! I wish I could wear a dress like that - and look this good. I have colored her with watercolorpencils. I cut out the birds and put them on foamdots to raise them.

My background musicpaper is some that I have taken form a childrens song book. It was actually from a childrens TV-show when I was a kid, so it was hard to tear it apart. Not that it was a good TV-show, nor that I do remember the songs, but I remember the the characters, and I really don't like to tear up books. For my Norwegian readers: Det var sangboka til Klabb og Babb som gikk med her *Ler* Husker dere Klabb og Babb?

I put a metal plate in the corner, added some flowers and a silver butterfly and some rose-what do you call these? Rosebuns? Oh well, I hope you understand what I mean.

No, run over to Midnight Madness Challenge blog and play along! I am looking forward to see what you all will make!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love it when my mail says *pling* and there is a comment for me. Makes me smile all day long!

Take care!

Hei kjære datter.
Dette var et spesielt flott kort.Jeg likte så godt damen med sine løse gevanter og fuglene som kretser rundt henne. Om bokaa måtte ofres, så var det til en god sak. Lykke til videre med dine korter.
Hilsen Mamma

Hey Gunn, What a Fabulous Job with this image!! Your skills are so wonderful bringing her to life. The metal plate ornament, you are good at using metallic items to embellish! Your comment on dragging it around the house for good lighting made me laugh! I can just picture you with a little leash for the card, tuggin it around.. Giggles!

Gunn, this is such a stunning card. Love the color of her dress! The nighttime background makes her stand out just beautifully. Your photography is great so all that dragging around the house paid off!! That corner decoration is over the top gorgeous and I love how it shines.

I just love this. Your work is always so amazing and inspiring. I am so glad that I got to work alongside you even if it was for just a short time. I couldn't be happier to have you fill my spot on the team, and couldn't have picked a better candidate had I hand-picked you myself. I look forward to seeing what all of your creativity brings to the team.

Wow Gunn du er litt av en kort kunstner; jeg bare digger kortene dine, de er så ulike, allikevell har de noe felles.
Herlig motiv,og de fuglene passet veldig godt.
Syntes jeg ser deg springe etter lyset, ikke helt lett det der alltid ;-) Husker Klabb og Babb; morsomme i sin tid.
Håper jeg får tid til å bli med dere denne gangen, digger skissene. Rakk det ikke forrige uke, men harlyst til å prøve skissen etterhvert uansett, den var knall god!
Ha en herlig uke:-)
Klem Guro
