Variation on a theme....

Again....I have a card I love to do that is very versatile. I first saw a similar card on SCS here and here.....and this is the first time I did it. It uses the beautiful Soft Summer (2 step stamping) set fm SU. This was my version of it..


Then a friend of mine saw this and asked if I could do a card for his Mum from his 2 sons because there were no cards he could find with "Nan" on them, so I did this....



Lastly, I had a friend have a nasty altercation with an insect, resulting in a serious allergic reaction....so I sent her this.....



I love the different feel of the cards in different colours. What do you think?? I actually had a MASSIVE play with my Stamp and Write markers and have come up with all sorts of colour combos for the same layout. Add a sentiment and your good to go.

If you like something...change the colour and see what happens. Brighten someone's day.

Stuff used:
Card: (SU) Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie.
Markers/Inks: (SU) Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Summer Sun,Versamark
Stamp Sets: (SU) Soft Summer, Best Yet.
Punches: (SU) Scallop Oval , Large Oval, Eyelet Border Punch.
Bits: SU dimensionals, Upkit gold alphabet and "happy birthday" stickers.

These are lovely Lynda! I like the orange one best - unusual for me, as I'm not normally an "orange person", LOL!

I was the lucky recipient of the first card and it's even nicer IRL! Just love the window pane effect and the variations are great too.

I really love this card. The tiled effect is on my 'to do' list as well
