Jennifer McGuire *Day 3*

Hi everyone! Here is our next card by the talented Jennifer:
BOLD and BEAUTIFUL; right? I love how Jennifer has colored in her flower with such rich colors. It really "pops" against the neutral ledger background. The leaves are a unique touch, as they are made from the petals of a flower--so innovative! Finally, the details in this card, for example the stitching and pearls, create such a polished and finished look.
Here is my take:
Cards for Kids
Here are a few more precious pictures of some of the children involved in the Cards for Kids card drive. You can read more about how to partipcate HERE. Remember, you can click on each picture for more information about the child and their family.


Inspired by Jennifer's bold use of color, here is my next card for the Card Drive:
See you tomorrow, my friends!
Card #1: All Stamps Hero Arts (CG119, CL351, E5388)
Card #2: Hero Arts (S5215, K5059), Woodgrain (All Night Media)
