Zoo Friends & You May Bow - A Mark's Finest Papers Bonus

Have you come to expect a bonus when it's time for the next Mark's Finest Papers release?  Well, I hope I never disappoint!  I have a couple of cards today made with the fifth set offered and the mini set available for the month of April.  The first card you see is made with a set filled with sweet little animals called Zoo Friends.  I love giraffes so this card was a natural for me.  It's a simple card with one of my go to designs.  Some patterned paper, letter stickers, scallops and sponging pull together a quick baby card.  I love that this one is gender neutral too.  It's good to have a few of these in your stash.

Now, we are going to get a little royal!  I really don't know one woman who wouldn't love to be treated like a queen on her special day.  Now, I do know several ladies who would never ask for that kind of treatment.  This set let's you tell it like it is: QUEEN FOR THE DAY!!  You have to love that!  For my card, I heat embossed the crown in silver ink and then colored the jewels and the rest of the crown.  I die cut my image and sponged it.  Finally, I laid the crystal effects to my jewels.  I used another go to design for this card.  I added a triple layer of ribbon beneath my crown.  Now this is just a little taste of what is to come this week.  Stay tuned for more new Mark's Finest Papers stamps!!
Thanks for coming by!
