This is Maddie's birthday card. I loved the suggestion for making the focal image stand out over a background by giving it some white space of its own. I made a watercolor background using all of Maddie's favorite colors and then toned it down with the new cover up. I colored the little girl with copics and popped her up with foam tape. Now she takes center stage over the background. Good Lesson!

I made this card for my daughter, Holly. She recently accepted a position at Avila University in Kansas City, MO as a Learning Architect. She moved from Columbia, MO to Kansas City as well as beginning a new job. She has always been quite independent. The photo in the background is one I got from the web and it was just the perfect accent. Her Dad and I just wanted her to know that she never ceases to amaze us and how much we love her!
This card is for my husband for our 53rd Anniversary. He loves glittery and shiny, so I applied some Glossy accents on the stamped heart for glossy and used silver glitter paper for the circle and hearts. The background is romantic script stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with white detail powder. Red, his favorite color, was applied with a blending tool. I'm sure he will like it.

I have really grown to love the "tall and skinny" challenge week. At first, I was rather intimated, because the space is an inch less on the width. I have found that it gives me a chance to use smaller embellishments or the opportunity to showcase one stamp from a set.
