Hello Everyone!! This card is for this weeks QFTD49 - the one and only Karen aka Redbugdriver aka Bugzi. It was an honor to take time for a lovely afternoon stroll through Karen's gallery.
Karen - I love your work, and am enjoying getting to know you better as a fellow-punchie, so browsing your gallery was a true pleasure. You are so talented - I love everything you do!! I finally decided on one that kept saying 'pick me, pick me'!!
Changes were with image (used Summer by the Sea - which is another of Karen's favorites!), card size, nestie, brayering, ribbon and embellishments.
The image is stamped then colored using markers and clear-embossed. Then the reverse image was stamped (using a mirror image stamp) and colored using markers. The horizon was masked and the card brayered in various blue colors for the sea and sky.
This card is also for another fellow PUNCHKATEER PAL who's birthday is coming up on March 17th!! I gave her a little green in honor of the day, and included a Seahorse Charm - which is a symbol of GOOD LUCK!! Happy Birthday Blondzi!!
Thanks everyone for taking a peek!!

Don't know exactly WHICH made my jaw drop to the floor - the awesome reflection, or the fantastic brayering job!! Both are equally stunning and really make this card special!!
the nestied image and the sentiment hanging from the ribbon really added to it as well - your friend is going to love this card !!
Karen, so happy for you this week as Queen - your gallery is so much fun, and your sweet comments always warm my heart. Thanks for all you bring to the galleries, my friend!
