Thank you card with Najlepsi Par

Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday! Looks like spring has come to Helsinki for a few days, and it decided to leave already - it's freezing again today, and I lost all hope that it will be warm again this year! Ugh... Please, please, send us some sunshine if you live in a warmer and sunnier part of the world!

Today, I am sharing with you a circular thank you card that I made for my daughter's playschool teacher. I really wanted to use my recently acquired dies by Najlepsi Par. When the card was finished, I realised that I also needed something to wrap our little gift in...and I got totally giddy when I found the box you can see in the photos - it looks nearly like a matching set! :o)

Quite pleased with the end result. A simple but cheerful and feminine card, I think!?





I am entering this card into the following challenges:
SSS Wednesday Challenge - Sparkle and shine (the tulips have metallic accents on them)

Have a great week ahead,

Mirella

Distress Oxide inks on kraft cardstock

Hi Everyone,

I hope I don't jinx it, but it looks like spring has finally decided to come to Helsinki! Woohoo! You cannot imagine how nice it is to start changing clothes to lighter ones, and to walk around in gorgeous sunshine...

To celebrate, I decided to make a floral card :o) This time, it's a card for a guy (I am really struggling with these, as you know!), so I opted for testing out my Distress Oxide inks on some kraft cardstock. I still went with quite cheerful and (some might say) feminine colours, but I think the fact that it's on a kraft base, and that there aren't any glittery embellishments classifies this card as an OK one for a guy!

I wanted to play along with the current "Where Creativity meets C9" challenge, hence I looked through my Concord and 9th stash, and decided to finally try out one of the turnabout stamps. Boy, these are so much fun, now I want more of them! 

And here's the card, what do you think, is it masculine enough?
