Pink blush

Hi everyone

Thanks for popping by.
This card is made with Foundations blush and coconut white card, for a very soft look.

I embossed the background with SB m-bossabilities folder called twisted hearts.
I cut two strips from an old SB boarder die the Vintage Lace Accents, and added to them to each end of the card
I then cut SW noble dies from the Classic Adorned Design the embossing is beautiful on the outer die.
The flowers are from SW complete Camellia flower. I added CS sparkle PVA to the center.
The sentiment is covered with self adhesive sheet and sprinkled Glamour Dust over it.

Have a great week

Fluttered on by..

Welcome fellow bloggers

Here is my offering for this week
 I wasn't quite sure where is was going with this card when I first started it its one of those that happened by items landing on one another and me thinking what if...
 I started with a background I made by cutting into a piece of card 4 times with SW Bright Star Adornment die. I had a glittery scrap piece of card that I really liked but was not sure what I was going to do with it and it landed on top of the other card. And so it began..

 I teamed the Aqua and  brown card together along with the Happy Birthday die from Sara Davies signature collection which I cut twice in aqua and white for a shadow effect and then glittered.
I used SW double pierced squares to frame it  and added Bronze PVA every other pierced dot.
To finish off I added glittered butterfly by SB and a bow with a handmade dazzler.

Bauble Wishes

Hi all

Another week has whizzed by.
As I won some digi images from Polkadoodles I thought I should have a play with them and this is my first card, from the Twiggy and Toots collection.

 I coloured the image with my promarkers and added a wink of stella to the hat and some of the bauble.
I'm not the greatest colourist in the world but I quite liked the way it turned out.
 I used CE Star Swirls embossing folder for the background and highlighted the embossed areas with CS Pearl Luster gilding polish.
I cut an  aperture out of red card using one of SW noble dies from the Classic Adorned set.
The green card is from my crafty stash, along with the ribbon and my handmade dazzler.

50th Birthday

Hi all
Here is a card I made for my husbands 50th birthday which was on Friday.

 I used a combination of  cardstock  from my stash and parchment using the Groovi system.
The sentiment I created on my computer and cut out with Justrite die vintage labels three and backed in brown card die cut with the
 botanical swirls die.

A brown ribbon hides the join between both the different colours and brown candi completes the card

This was his birthday cake we had a fantastic day -we went to one of our daughters for a BBQ with the rest of the family.
