ROP Challenge and a Birthday card...

Hi !!!

I'm sorry that I haven't been crafty enough lately, but I have been bugged by a cold these days :(

In this post, I'm going to show two different cards. The first one is for my DT challenge at "Roses on Paper" ROP blog . This week Peta is hosting the challenge and asked us to make a card using a masking technique, focusing on a Valentine theme and having some roses on the card... What a combo eh?? Hope you join us to play along with us this week. We have a wonderful prize and talented ladies to chat with about cards. All the highlighted items from both cards can be purchased at "Roses on Paper Store".

The second card is for a beautiful and sweet young lady who is turning 15 y.o. She is neighbor of mine and is always so sweet and nice with everybody that I wanted to give her this card with some money inside so that she can buy some treat for her :)) I also have a little basket with a nice fragrance, a shower gel and a body lotion :))

Materials for both cards.
Stamp: Magnolia ( New Year and Valentine collection)
Papers: Prima Marketing ( I love this new papers...They are gorgeous)
Ink:Distress Ink
Embellishments: Dew Drops ( Silver Bell Bottle) , Prima flowers, charms, ribbons,
Tools:Nestabilities and Spellbinders.

Beautiful cards Lim. I'm sorry that you are not feeling well. Drink some airborne or eat some oranges, they are now in season here in Florida. I think your little neighbor girl will love your card, as I sure did.
