Cook Up A Card - August Recipe

tHi friends,

It's AUGUST already... Wow.. Time flies soooo fast. We even had Christmas in July, and now comes the 8th month of the year.. It's time for cooking in Cook Up A Card Challenge. It is still summer in some places in the world. Well, we have summer here most of all year long...LOL... When I spent three-week homestay during summer in Tours, France several years ago, I saw so many beautiful flowers almost everywhere. I even saw the flowers that I had never seen before. They were all soooo lovely. I even bought some packs of the seeds and tried to grow them in my place. Some grew beautifully, though were not like in their origin. By the way, my friend took a pic of me under the bus shelter sign called "Fleurie" which means flowery...LOL... (..btw, I also ate some fruits and nuts that I had never eaten before..)

The recipe this month reminds me of those beautiful
summer flowers..(..I expect to go back there some day..). Susie had written the recipe. This is it:
3 flowers
2 stamps (image/sentiment)
1 birthday

Let's see what I have cooked here. I can't stop cooking.
..that I made three cards in a row..

I already entered the first card above to some challenges.

For the second card above, I inked the Cling with several dew drop chalk inks and stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock, and cut them into 6 pieces. Adhered them like a puzzle. Then I stamped once the Cling with flowers, colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. I'm still trying to color them with the technique I got from Color Me Copic Blog. You can find many tutorials here. From all those three flowers, I love the way I colored the blue one. I added some pearl gems. And gave a glitter ink on the buds. And I enter this card to join The Crazy Challenge (again): All About Birthdays, Stamp n Doodle: Anything Goes, Mami Doodles: Anything Goes.

The card above is the third one. Love the simple colors on it. This will be given to a lady (..mother of my ex boyfriend..pssst..), who always keeps in touch with me. I enter this card to join Stampin' B's Design Team Challenge #69: A Birthday Card, Ooh La La Creations Challenge #59 : Birthday and Dutchdare Card Challenge # 83: Anything Goes.
