Your cards are wonderful, Petra! Love the simplicity and colors - both so dramatic in your trade-mark "Petra" style way. I'm captivated by your photographs LOL BEAUTIFUL mountain scenery with the movement of clouds on top. I never tire of seeing the clouds here in Florida - it does not matter how dark they may get just before a severe thunderstorm, or how brilliantly gold they are just before the sunrise, I am always mesmerized. Always looking up to see the beauties of Nature, even in the sky! Perhaps that is why I enjoy your artwork so much - you incorporate so much of the "contemporary" with Nature on each creation! They are marvelously accomplished! Wishing you and yours well.

Nog 2 prag ontwerpe! Jy het verskuilde digitale talente! Jou sentiment lyk fantasties, so mooi gedoen. Kaartjie nommer 2, wel ja, meesterlike vermenging van patrone en elemente!
Lekker dag verder!

Hi Petra my dear friend! I love the simplicity of your beautiful one layer card, how clever to get the computer generated sentiment positioned perfectly!! And the perfect mix of patterned papers is a real art, when I mix PP they always end up looking like I'd thrown the contents of my rubbish bin on to a card! I also admire how you 'think outside of the box' and use elements in ways I would never think of!! Stunning my friend, just stunning! Have a great week! Hazel xx

Beautiful cards Petra. Especially love the first one with the simple design. What a great take on the sketch, stamping words with the sweet little flower... The yellow roses are so pretty on the second.

I just love your design for your CTS card, Petra! The colors and flower are gorgeous - truly a one-layered wonder! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at CTS! I love your Viva card, too!!!

This is so nice having 3 DAYS of your art! I sure love the pop of color on both your cards [and the lovely background!]

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, these are both so pretty!

Jen Mitchell said...

These are so beautiful Petra! I love the bold sentiment and the bright flower on that first card!

SewPaperPaint said...

Congrats on your recap feature at VLV! :) <3 Love this card so!

Beautiful cards, Petra! I'm especially smitten with the first...the crisp blue of the sentiments, punctuated with the pretty lovely!

Joyce said...

Two more beautiful cards. I am sorry I have gotten so far behind. I seem to be behind in everything. I especially love those roses in your second card.

Anita in France said...

Both just wonderful, Petra ... what a pretty single bloom amid the collage-y sentiment on the first ... and such lovely layers on the second! Hugs, Anita :)
