A Very, Very Special Card.....

Hello dear blogging friends: The card I'm sharing with you today has a very special meaning for me because it was made with my 20 year old granddaughter Vanessa's first ever digital image, created by her and it shows some of her amazing talents as an illustrator and artist.   You can read a bit of her story HERE and view the image at her ETSY SHOP and , perhaps get this beautiful image for yourselves.  Here is the card I made with it, hope you like it.


I printed the image on a die cut panel of Drawing Paper because I wanted to color it with my Prismacolors, the sentiment is from a stash of unknowns, this one might be from Stampendous.

*****************************************************************

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Short Stacks" the leaves from a retired SU set called "Peaceful Petals"

I would like to play along with the following challenges.


Country View Challenges  "In the Summer Garden"

Sheepski Designs Challenge #16 "For Someone Special"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Such a beautiful card - love to see your granddaughter following in your artistic footsteps. I also love the stitching you've added and the fact that the stitches are wavy. I might have to Case that! Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.

Wow Maria your grand-daughter is one seriously talented woman!! Your card showcases this flower beautifully and I'm off now to look at more of her designs in her Etsy store.

This image will go straight to my digi files as soon as I get my desktop computer back. I love the soft lines of her illustration, and Vanessa's skill as an artist is very evident. It's so beautiful! And you've shown just how gorgeous it looks colored up with your Prismas. I'm totally in love! Count me as a new fan of Vanessa's. I hope to see more from her!

How wonderful! She is truly talented (I know where she gets it from!), I adore the beautiful colours that you chose and how you kept the image the main focus.

CherylQuilts said...

Wow, Maria! I love your card and your amazing coloring, and I really love this digi that Vanessa designed. It's so beautiful and lends itself to different coloring media. Looking forward to using it. I just read Vanessa's story, and she is beyond accomplished! What an amazing young woman, and I know she has a promising future ahead of her. So many gifts and talents, and I trust that she will enjoy each of her areas of interest and activities. She sounds so much like her grandmother with the sports too. Surely you've had a great influence on her life. Anyway, I love your card with this stunning flower, and what a perfect and elegant way to finish it with the wonky stitched die and simple sentiment! Beautiful, sweet friend! Hugs!
