This is Kitty's very cute image - Kangaroo Sailing. Love his hat!
The sentiment I chose is from LOTV (Set 64) and is stamped in Memento Paris Dusk and I used this to smudge around the piece of DP (nope, no idea where this came from - it is a piece of scrap!)
The charm is glued on and I chopped off the small circle on the top of the lighthouse. I did the same with the small wheel charm
I tried to let the image dominate the card. It is all put onto a piece of SU Night of Navy card, folded.
The second card is a Retirement one and the image I used is called Island Holiday. You could use it to make a male card for a birthday or similar, or for a Farewell for some-one travelling.
This sentiment is an old SU one, and was one of the first I ever purchased. Momento Paris Dusk ink onto a scrap of white which was then swiped with ink on a sponge to take the starkness from it. This is mounted on SU TT and some of the yellow used for the Congrats sentiment.
He is such a klutz! Love him. I rough cut around the image and mounted it onto a bit of scrap SU Tempting Turquoise, and the DP is also from SU and comes with the set attached to the This and That Notebook/album. I used a scrap piece of an embossed card (very old) and attached the DP and then the image, and finally creating a banner using a piece of scrap card, and folding it so that it sits up off the page. All this was then added to a commercial blank white card.
I added some bling from Annabel Stamps.
