the best ones...Artisan Award Entry #9

now, we get to the final two.
they are my favorite and they were the hardest and 
most complicated!

the first one i will show you today.
the idea started from an MDS card i made on the computer one day
it came from an Apple App for the iPhone for ringtones.
i made a card out of it that you can see here.

this is the frame that came from the same idea...

instead of the black background though,
i decided to use white because i thought it gave a crisper look to the bright colors.
the colors i used were:
Melon Mambo
Pumpkin Pie
Summer Sun (retires july1)
Old Olive
Bermuda Bay (retires july1)
Rich Razzleberry.

i used the Embosslit Beautiful Wings
to make all the butterflies.

and i tied a Melon Mambo polka dotted ribbon around the outside
to finish it off.

i just love the way it turned out.
especially with the black and white photo
of my husband and daughter to complement it.



  1. I LOVE this, Lou! So bright, pretty, and fun! Love all the different colors and the matching ribbon around the edges. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

  2. This is soooo gorgeous!! Thanks so much for sharing. How long did it take you to run all of those through your Big Shot?
