A Simple Card plus a "long" Story

This card was a very quick and easy card for some friends, and I'm pleased with how it came out for being a simple one. I used the "frame" for the Top Note Sizzix die, Upsy Daisy for the stamp, some light sponging and Martha Stewart flowers for the corners. Stamp a sentiment and voila, you're done! Oh, I did add a few Kaiser pearls to the flowers on the stamped image. The DP is SU's Flowers for You.
This week has been busy. I was asked by a local children's clothing store to make 5 cards of 2 designs that I brought them. I'm not sure how I feel about mass producing when I have to color in the main design. They turned out pretty cute, actually, and I took them in to the store. Because I raised my "asking" from $2 to $3, she turned down the big card suggesting they wouldn't sell, but she did take the little gift cards....all 5 of them. I'll post pics of these in my next post. I didn't want to lower my price because coloring in all those images just isn't worth letting them go for $2. I missed making cards to post and commenting on all of your cards, so I have to think about this "venture." I'm still happy she took the 5 gift cards, and she liked my work. She just didn't think she could sell them by the time she added her mark-up. Now I've spared you all that reading with my next post. Have a wonderful Saturday. Thanks for stopping by.
