Moving on to some of this week's challenges - I have two cards to share today. First up is an anniversary card. My design was inspired by the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - Out on a Limb
My tree branch is Woodland Branch from Memory Box and my sentiment stamp is from Sweet N Sassy. I used my new Tipped Tops Die from PTI for the panel and added flower sequins for a little sparkle. Inside I stamped 'Happy Anniversary'.
My second card's design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch.
I just got these beautiful snowflake stamps in the mail this week. They are from a set called Sophisticated Snowflakes designed by Mona Pendleton for My Favorite Things - and they are just lovely - don't you think?! I stamped them in 3 different Memento blue inks and added white sequins to some of the centers. The Noel is from Starry Christmas - also from MFT.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm off this morning to a little musical concert that my 2 1/2 year old grandnephew, James, is in with his day care class (how cute will this be!) Then we'll go to James' parents for a pizza lunch.
