Picture Perfect - CCC #60

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Is it Spring where you live yet?  It finally arrive here last week and has been so beautiful.  Casper and Corey love to sit by an open back window and sniff all the out smells.  They are so full of life, running and playing all over the house.  Yesterday after our Easter dinner, my daughter got the laser pointer out and the kitties went crazy! I'm not sure who was having more fun, she or the kitties.

On to my card for Creative Card Crew this fortnight.  From the time I saw this image in the A Day for Daisies store, I knew I wanted to use it and how I wanted it to look.  Our theme this time is "Girly."  Here is my card.

This is my first time using this size of  card.  I bought a set of cards and envelopes   a very long time ago.  Not even sure where I got them, but figured it was time I started using them.  Here's an upclose of the image.

And here is the flower bouquet

  1. Holy smokes, this is beautiful! So graceful, I really like the long, tall card size for this image, and how you've framed her off. You've colored her perfectly to stand out from the colors in the DP, yet it all coordinates so well. It's just beautiful, Maggie!

  2. Wow Maggie - this is gorgeous. Beautiful coloring on the image and love your floral spray - the perfect embellishment for this card.

  3. Beautiful card Maggie & awesome coloring as always!!!!!

  4. Beautifully colored image and wonderful flower arrangement on your card! Great Spring card.

  5. Look at all of those beautiful colors!! Your coloring is impeccable as always.

  6. Gorgeous! I love this card size and it's the perfect image for it. Assuming it's a #10 envelope size? I don't have nice envelopes for this size and always have to use business envelopes. I do my best to dress them up -- make a liner, etc., but someday I will have to search out some nice #10 envelopes. Your coloring is so pretty! Love the paper and the floral arrangement with it, too. It all fits together so nicely!

  7. Love the coloring on this card- and the pretty BG DP- one of my favorites- the colors are so pretty! Girly all the way- love it!

  8. Maggie, your card is gorgeous. Love all the flowers!

  9. Beautiful card, great colors, coloring job and flowers. Thanks for sharing with us this week at HIMCR.
