Standing Pretty

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful and lightful Christmas time. Now we are counting the days till the changing of the Year... not far to go...

Before I want to show you my recent card I made with this oh so sweet image by the fabulous artist Elisabeth Bell called 'Standing Pretty'. After quite some red, green, gold and blue tones I used lately for doing Christmassy and wintery cards I gave a go with pink... so it even looks more springlike. Well, as for me I am happy that the shortest day of the year is past again and the days are going to be longer again. 

I made a shaker card this time and quite like how it turned out. I coloured the image with Distress Inks.

Here's a close up of the image... it is a bit difficult to photograph the image behind the window.

Here a close up after shaking...
I wish everyone a very happy NEW YEAR 2012!!!

Hugs, Karina


  1. WOW, WOW, WOW Karina, this is so darn adorable. I love everything about it. The background, the shaker style card, the embellishements, etc. Fabulous!

  2. Stunning Karina! A very striking creation but I like most how you have an aura around her with a tiny white edging. Masking and fussy cutting on top of all the other bling?
    Wonderful work!!

  3. WOW, that card is just amazing Karina. I love it. it's just wonderful and a shaker card on top of it all. Those Elisabeth Bell images are totally cute and you made her look awesome.

  4. gorgeous card! I so love the shaker and just everything about it. from the coloring to the papers and layout, it is awesome.

  5. this is super pretty and what a FUN idea to do a shaker card! Love the detail and the shape on the shaker.

  6. Love the layout and the pink shade you made around the image. So sweet.

  7. This is stunning Karina. Love the way it looks like melting ice when shaken.
    Best wishes, Sharon

  8. Karina, this is so pretty. I love the colors and your design is gorgeous. Love the shaker style. I have never made one before, but I do love them.
