~ One Card, Four Colors ~ Replicating a Layout

Remember this? :) my zoo-py little zebra has a new home and the card is sailing over the sea to a wonderful etsy customer. She asked me to make three more of these valentines, each one different and special, and here they are. Valentine-blossom-collages:

 Each one is created with patterned paper, stitched to the card and a hand-cut glittered heart frame, with a crepe-tissue, chipboard flower and little bits added here and there. I love using scrunchy bows.. but something tells me that the more you pay for the ribbon, the better bows they make. I'll let you know when my next order comes in and I confirm my belief :)

I hope she will enjoy sending the valentines.

my mum asked why she needed FOUR. and I said something like "Mum, I think in the US they send valentines to all their friends, not just to their sweetheart." .... *laughter*

is that true?

the cherry-pink, summery shabby blossom bundle...


and more of these, as I promised...

 thank you, dears for everything you do ... and for dropping by...
