Kenny K Cards for Someone Special

My son asked me if I could make a card for his girlfriend's birthday - not only did I feel touched and honoured he had asked me, but I felt a great responsibility to step up to the mark.  I didn't want to let him down and knew his lovely girlfriend had her own particular style which I wanted to capture in the card.

I used Crafter's Companion pearlescent card and cut it to A4 size.

I got to thinking and decided Kenny K downloads would be the way to go.  A few of the images got a "Hmm I don't think so mom", or  "Nah, that's no good" and I knew I was well off the beaten track when I got a "Nope" - straight and to the point eh?!  Just as I was doubting my decision to go with Kenny K, we found the perfect image...

Worked hard on my shading here!

It's great isn't it!
Does he look like that? It's probably best if we don't know!

All foiled sentiments from Hunkydory - a QVC TSV special.

I wanted to make one from DH and myself and found another one that could have been modelled on her - she stands exactly like this!...

Paper flower and ribbon flower from stash.

I used soft muted colours throughout as she's no girly girl, has amazing skin and is so pretty.  Thankfully DS was delighted and she loved both cards.  Mission accomplished - phew!

I am entering the first card above into Kenny K's Crafty Girlz Challenges - April Fool

Keep popping in,
