Variations Week: Ali's View

This week is Variations Week once again and this time the Design Team are all creating with Connie Fong's adorable Mother and Baby image. There are two versions - Boy or Girl - and I've chosen to work with the Girl version:
I love this pretty image. It absolutely captures the tenderness of a mother's love. :) I used my Promarkers to colour it in warm shades of red and pink:

I went with a rich, warm feeling for my card with pretty patterned papers in rich colours, and lots of embossing and gold and copper tones.

I added lacy ribbon and clusters of pretty flowers and touched them with glitter glue.

And I added a few final accents with a copper Perlen Pen.
You can buy this gorgeous stamp in digi or red rubber form from the Sweet Pea Stamps store.


  1. Ali, I love the bright colours of red, pink, gold and copper you have used for this card. Those flowers are very yummy. Stunning. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  2. Wowser Ali! I like all the embossing and the red accents. Your card is so rich I think I've gained weight just looking at it!!

  3. Ali, I also love the bright colours you used for your card. And the embossed folders look great and so elegant.
    Hugs, Karina

  4. This turned out very beautiful with all layers and embossing on them! Lovely colors and love the lace!

  5. You did an amazing job with this. I love all your details!

  6. Lovely coloring, I would never think to pick red and pink together but it's just wonderful on this card, your background and all the embossing is perfect.

  7. Beautiful Ali, love the red with the pink. The layers are all so pretty, as well as your coloring. The flower placements are perfect. Gorgeous

  8. Remarkable! This is a bright and cheery card, yet so elegant. Good job! Love all of it.
