something old, something new, something blue...

Happy friday to all of you! It´s me, Kathrin, and even if you might expect it after reading the title of this post this is not a wedding related post. ;O)

Today I want to share you an all BLUE card using one of the OLD images. Okay, I don´t really think you can talk about this being old but at least it´s from one of the previous releases.
The name of this stamp is

Romantic Dreamer

and she´s not coming all alone. No, she brings her cool friend Lost in Thought, that I used on the boy card in this post.

I used these Copics to color the image:

The papers are by Magnolia, DCWV and K&Company and they go perfectly with the Marker numbers I picked. I added two flowers, the big bow, some half pearls and the charm was the perfect find to go with the image. As I needed something to surround the image but wanted to keep the focus on the images instead of the decoration I went through those boxes I have all over my room and found that swirly silver stuff that is left over from christmas... In Germany we call this angels´ hair but sorry, I don´t know the english word for that. I rolled the ends between my fingers to make it stay together and attached it under the flower petals to my card by putting there a little glue dot.

So, what about the NEW stuff you might ask - here you go:

I made this card using

Hippie Love

about 2 weeks ago for a carnival themed challenge.

The colors I used are quite unusual for me but when I think of the 70ies I think of orange and green so I decided to give these a try. And - surprise - I like the result! These are the Copics I used for the coloring:

The papers are by First Edition Papers and My Mind´s Eye and I used my computer to make a matching sentiment.

So, that´s it from me for today - make sure to come back since there will also be a post from the wonderful Kellie later today.

Enjoy your day!
