Wild Rose Studio Bella in Love


Hello Dearest Readers,

How are you this wonderful Wednesday? It seems our monsoon season may have ended. It was good to have some rain. I'm dreading the day I realize my little hummingbird friends have gone to their winter digs in Mexico. What a long, arduous journey for such a tiny bird. I'm silly, huh? I worry about them! In the mornings now, we can hear geese heading south. They squawk as they fly over the house. The trees in the higher elevations are already showing turning leaves. Fall is around the corner.

Today is "W-ednesday" at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. Today, I am sharing a sweet little card featuring a Wild Rose Studio image called Bella in Love. You can find her HERE. Diana has her for sale at only $7.99! Oh, and before I forget, Diana has a sale on dies! You might want to check out her die section, too! You can find that HERE .

Here is the card I made for you to see -



Isn't that a sweet stamp? It would be perfect for a love card or even a card for Valentine's Day! The stamp has three hearts above the elephants' heads, but I chose to eliminate that and add three rhinestone hearts instead. My image has been painted with a mixture of Distress Inks and Derwent regular watercolor pencils.

Here is a view from the side:



I chose to make the card very simple. LOL I have it for sale in my Etsy Shop for only $5.00! Sometimes, I just like to make cards that are not heaping with my usual "embellish to death style!" The hardest part about making this card was lining up the interior paper cut outs so that they fell into the same spot as the card cover cut outs! That was NOT an easy task!

Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope you like my card!

Oh, I almost forgot! If you haven't been on the Magnolia-licious Fall Blog Hop Trail, please visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get the starting point! You will be AMAZED at the gorgeous work my fellow teamies have created! These gals are so very talented!

Have a wonderful week!

XO,

Chris

Hi Chris.
I absolutely adore your card and the sweet little elephants are so cute.
The colours are very pretty and the detail is just wonderful.
It sounds as though you live in a wonderful place. I love the wildlife that visit our garden in the Spring/Summer and do miss them when Fall and Winter arrives.
Hugs, Donna xx

I can't tell you how sweet this card is. I love the idea of matching the cut outs on both sides of the card.

I love your card s is so sweet.
I live in Texas in the path of the ducks flying south. I can go out side and I can hear them from so far up. I call them honkers ....lol..
Sometimes I can hear them but they are so far up I can't see them. I feed my hummers all summer long.
Allot of humming birds stop over on there way up north and they stop on there way south. I get so much enjoyment everyday watching them feed. I am like you I will miss them when they leave.
