CC230 Essence of Love and some pictures of my girls!!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Our girls are back to school since Monday and I'm loving it - LOL!!! My house is sooooo wonderfully quite and I enjoy myself big time :)!!! I have some photos for you at the end of the post!!!

Today I want to share a card I've made for yesterday's CC230 - using Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral and Whisper White. Even though the last to colors were optional I used the entire combo on my card!!!

I must admit these colors put my grey cells into overdrive - LOL!!! They are soooo pretty together, but not a combo I would chose - KWIM???

After thinking really hard I decided to use on of my Essence of Love Set. It's perfect for multi-colors!!!






















I used my matching SU Markers to color straight onto the image!!! After I stamped it I bedazzled the flowers with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

The Sketch is from the Viva la Verve Sketch from a few weeks ago.

Liebe Silke,
deine Mädels sind wirklich sehr hübsch. Schöne Bilder hast du von ihnen gemacht. Und so groß und auch erwachsener sind sie geworden. Wahnsinn.
Deine Karten sind natürlich wie immer sensationell.
Love and Kisses deine Simone
