Way to go!

Hi everyone, I have another card to share with you. This one was inspired by a friend of mine and is in the mail and on it's way as I type. My friend has three daughters and all have been very involved in multiple school activities throughout the years, including Cheer-leading and Volley Ball. When the new "Winner Takes All" came available at Magnolia-licious I just new I had to have these two images and hopefully she will be able to use them in her scrapbooking. She just "launched" her eldest into college so I hope this card will cheer her up a little....

Their school colors are red and black - not as easy to work with as you might think - at least not for me!

Here is the card I designed for her using the school colors throughout...



Here is a close up of Cheerleader Tilda



A side view of the card...


Here is how I finished the inside of the card. I created a pocket in the salutation panel to hold the images that I colored for her...


Here are the images pulled up from the pocket and you can see how I colored them.



Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I always appreciate your visits...

Blessings and hugs,
Barb

  5. Hi Barb!
    I pray all is well in your part of the world.
    Your card is gorgeous. I love those two images and how you have colored them. Red and black are harder colors to do I think but you have done them splendidly. I love the design paper too.

I love black and white, with a bit of red, and you brought those colors magnificiently. Your coloring of Tilda is wonderful, she has a reason to celebrate! I love the inside with those 2 cute images of Tilda. Your DP is spectacular, beautiful!
