Someone Special

For Someone Special
Visit Just Magnolia's blog and enjoy the DT's beautiful creations for the challenge to make a card for someone special -- now that is an easy one! My Someone Special is actually two someone specials: This month, my son, Dain, is receiving his Master of Fine Arts in Painting; and his girlfriend is receiving her cap and pin for nursing. I am christening my very first Magnolia purchases for this event by making a celebration card for each of them. In Sherry's honor, the little Student Tilda now has a red cross for her hat. The bubbly has little gems mounted on a thin sliver of acetate behind the glass and inside for that someone special, I've stamped and colored a rose and added "It's Your Special Day." A Special Day indeed for someone very special.
For the other Someone Special -- Dain
I pieced Edwin and set him atop a collage of "famous art." Here's what the collage looked like before Edwin came aboard:

Sherry's: Stamps by Magnolia, Posh mpressions, All Night Media, Sizzix, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, ribbons, gems, flowers from stash,Prismacolor Markers, Diamond Glaze, Art Institute Glitter
Dains: Stamps by Magnolia, PSX, Inkadinkadoo, Hero Arts, Zumbali, Rubber Tree, Museum Stamps, Ek Success - Image Tree, Sizzix, Diamond Glaze, Art Institute Glitter, Prismacolor Markers
Thanks for visiting, please tell me what you think.
