Quote Card w/Matching Envie



One of the April swaps in my Arthaven art group was to make a card with a quote and matching envelope...Well, I cheated just a bit and added 2 flowers, but that's okay...I love this quote by Picasso and wanted to make a card that was pretty and artsy at the same time...I stamped the quote on a blank label, added the paper flowers, pink pearls and for a little sparkle, the pink gemstones...On the bottom is a strip of creamed colored, crocheted lace and for the artsy part I added the stick on tubes of acrylic paint...I like the way it blends together with the swap theme and the quote...

For the matching envelope I added a blank label to the front, just like the one on the card and a return address label with a cute little bee on it...The back of the envie has the flap in the matching polka dot paper that is on the card...I also added two roses to pretty it up...

So, now I am off to make a birthday card and a get well card for friends...I hope to join in on the ArtHaven May lottery, too...The theme is butterflies...Should be fun...

Thank you all, once again, for visiting my blog and for all your kind comments...I so appreciate it...Hope to see you again soon..........Kathy
