I had a lot of fun making the two cards I have to share today! Sparkle and Silver, Aqua and Purple and a little bit of Gold! For my first card - I used my brandy new Cover Plate Stripes Horizontal from PTI - patching some of it with black and tan. The Funky Flowers are from Waltzingmouse, the sentiment is from a new set I just got in the mail - Whole Lotta Happy from WPlus9 - embossed in gold on a black panel I cut with a stitched mat rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs
This card was inspired by the Cure for the Monday Blues #6 - Strictly Sparkle.
I'm also entering this into Seize the Birthday - Anything goes.
My next card is another one full of sparkle - I actually used the same sparkle paper from Michaels - but in aqua this time.
I silver embossed the deer from Waltzingmouse on brushed silver card stock. I used a Tipped Top Die from PTI to cut the angled sparkle panel. I silver embossed the sentiment "Merry Christmas" ( Zalig Herstfeest in Dutch) and added some silver sparkle enamel dots!
My inspiration for this card was this week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge
My design was from this week's Freshly Made Sketches
and I used a Dutch sentiment on my card for the City Crafter Challenge Blog - Do you speak English?
How fun are all these blog challenges?? They really help me get creative in my card design!
