A Valentines Card from my Dad

valentines from my Dad

I made this card for a friends (man) daughter for Valentines day. She is 12 years old, so I asked him a couple of questions about her trying to figure out what kind of a young lady she is. What is her favorite color, is she a Daddy girl, is their anything she loves to do? As you would know Dad do not know anything. One thing I found out is she is not a sweet little Daddy girl so I showed him this image and he said perfect. This is an image from The Stamping Boutique store. The image is called KK. When I’m just making a card no problem but when I’m getting paid to make a card I want the card to be very nice and for sure I want the person to like it but when I do not know the person it is really hard. I have know ideas about her. Her father said to me just make your magic, and I said Oh thanks! So I wanted to make it special one she would not be able to buy at the store. So I though a step card that is different and most girls like purple she is a little to old for pink, so purple it will be.valentimes from my Dad right  

This is the left side view. I sure hope she was not a tomboy. So I added some purple and white flowers and the leaves are ribbon. I had some more of my beaded hearts, they look pink but they are a little more lavender.

On the right side I found some heart embellishments in shades of lavender and light lavender so I glued them on. I had a charm that had the word LOVE on it so I put a fishing line one it and hung it from a brad. I also found some purple heart brads. I put a ribbon a long the front and tied a bow. So now I find out that The latte Lounge is having a challenge for a Card from The Stamping Boutique with an image made with flowers that ends March 3, so I think I will enter her. I do not know why, I never win anyway but I will try. They also have another one going on At The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog that is a month challenge and you make a card with one of their images and you can enter that challenge, WOW!!!
