Charity Cards

Hi everyone! Today I have three not so special generic cards to show, and they will be added to my collection of charity cards. I apologise for the poor quality photo's, unfortunately the sky was very grey with heavy cloud when I took them.

The flowers on my first card were printed and cut on my Cameo then laid across the Cheery Lynn 'Mexican Tile' frame and given a little dimension.
I created the background on my second card using four Spellbinders 'Corner Flourish' dies. The central die is by Marianne.  I stamped my flowers and coloured with ProMarkers. I added some enamel accents to the flower centres.
For my final card I embossed the background with Spellbinders 'Garden Lattice' EF then added cosmic shimmer 'Vintage Pink' faux pearls. My image is from Flourishes 'Tulips for Friends'..... I love this stamp set!
I coloured my tulips with Anna Griffin water colour markers.
That's all for today folks!  I will probably show some more charity cards later in the week
Thank you for stopping by
Love, Sasha xx

I think we are all struggling with photos Sasha, it's so dull day after day it seems.

All of these are very pretty but I think it's the middle one that is my favourite, like the crisp elegance.

Beautiful beautiful cards Sasha as always :)hugs Viv xx

Stella said...

That's all for today...that sentence made me smile . It is wonderful Sasha. I know what you mean about taking photos this time of the year. I struggle with it too. Your style is always elegant and the second card is - in my opinion- spot on your style. I also love the other cards. The first cards with the flowers cut with your Cameo has also something special. I can't describe it but the flowers paired up with the gorgeous background made my jaw drop. Wow! XX

Hazel said...

Love your three cards Sasha, but have to say the middle is my favourite, Hazel x

A wonderful gallery of cards as always Sasha! I particularly like the top one with those fabulous flowers and the die cut sentiment. The light levels are dreadful aren't they but at least it's all downhill from here! Vicky x
