Glittery Background: Birthday

Hello everyone. Today I have a card using an oh so fun technique that I learned from this post by the amazing Jennifer McGuire. This was my first attempt and 2 of my glitter colours were not glitter ritz and they definitely did not work as well or as easily as the glitter ritz colours, but I still like the end result. I will definitely be trying this again.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes
Stamplorations - stamps and glitter
Crafty Girls Challenges - anything goes

Thanks for stopping in,

2 takes on flower card

Hello everyone. Life has been so busy, that although I have squeezed in many early morning or late night sessions to make a card, I have had no time to post. That changes today. I have two cards made very similarly, but have created two different looks by using vellum to soften one of them. Both recipients adored their cards and as you can see one was for a happy occasion and one definitely sad. It is nice to be able to use the same stamps for very different events.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenge:

Less is More - Colors of your bedroom (I am actually using colours from my daughter's room).
