Bright and Beautiful

This is a bright card I have made this afternoon. The papers are from a download from the internet (it may have been papercraft inspirations but not sure as it was a while ago I downloaded it). The floral and with love embelishments are from the same download and the butterflies are papermania diecuts.

Simply Floral & Glitter

This one is quite a simple card. I have used a Papermania embossed card and added glammor dust to the flowers, some I have then added a pearl to the centre and the rest a little silver stickles glue. I then added two Papermania pearl flower embelishments to the embossed pannels. I have left the sentiment off so I can use the card for any purpose.

Cute Card Thursday :- Challenge 16

Well this is my first attempt at a blog challenge. This one is from Cute Card Thursday. The challenge was to make a card without using a background paper. I coloured a Tilda image with sakura pens and coloured pencils. I embossed two pieces of pearl card with my cuttlebug, matted these onto a pink pearl card and placed a sticky ribbon across where they met, which I have sat Tilda on. I then added jems to accent and a floral embellishment. Then finally added a birthday wishes peel off.
I am not sure about this so your comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

Sketch card 14

I love this card and layout for the Crafters Companion Sketch card 14 Challenge. I designed this card around the backing paper. I used a 6" square card which I matted the backing paper to. The pink square of card is embossed using my cuttlebug. I have added two papermania embelishments and clear heart jems.

Sketch Card 13

I decided to make a simple card for this sketch. Again it is for the Crafters Companion Forum. I used a 6" square holographic card for this, matted a pink piece of check paper and a papermania embelishmednt onto it.

Sketch Card 12

Crafters Companion Sketch Card Challenge 12. I printed the card with this background and then matted two squares and added three papermania embelishments and sticky ribbon.

Son Birthday Card Order

Another order this time the requests were Thomas the Tank Engine, Blue and White and for son's first birthday.

Wedding Card Order

This is a card order I made for my husband's work colleagues Sisters Wedding this weekend. She wanted a card with blue and white and butterflies. I made an A4 card and used handmade papers and pear card for the base of the card. The butterflies are Craft Creation peel off's I have mounted on pear card and then another onto acetate to make the 3d effect. I have also finished the design with further peel offs and ribbon.

Sketch Card 11

This is the card I did for the Crafters Companion Sketch Card Challenge 11 last month but only got round to updating my blog tonight. I have used a Magnolia stamped image and coloured it with pencils. Then added an embelishment to it and finished with Craft Creations Peel offs.
