Good Luck cards

A couple of quickie cards from me this evening - we've a couple of volunteers in work from Greece and Cyprus who are heading home after a year, so this is their goodbye cards.

I've rooted out some of my oldie Penny Black stamps and used this MFT alpha set yet again, it's proving to be a great investment!

On Gina's card I covered the balloon with sparkle and then clear gloss and added some blue and green splatters.  I also chalked in some clouds but thought the top corner looked a bit unbalanced, so added these Lawn Fawn cloud dies to fill it up!


I liked how Gina's card turned out, so carried on with the same general design for Charoula's card which uses one of my oldest Penny Black stamps!  I masked it off so I could stamp extra butterflies, and then covered them with sparkle and clear gloss.

What adorable cards! Adding the recipients' names is such a wonderful way to personalise them and I absolutely love the brightly coloured butterflies in the background of the second card you're entering in our "alphabet" challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Those die-cut clouds on your first card finished it off nicely! Love that PB image. Your second card is super sweet, too. It was such a great idea to add all those extra butterflies.

These two cards are real beauties Lynne! I love the delicate colouring against the bold fonts and the personalisation is a super way to show people you care about them. The freely flying butterflies on the second card are superb. Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

Both card are so cute and love the slight inking. Thank you for joining our Challenge a few weeks ago at Word Art Wednesday. We have a week left on our current Challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Have a blessed week.
