The dress in stamped on to black card and silver embossed with pink glitter applied to the rose in the middle of the dress and then it has been mounted on to silver mirri card. The finishing touch comes with two pink fabric flowers attached with a pink brad and 3 little love heart sparkels in the top corner.

J is for Jaggered Edge

I created this one for my sister-in-laws birthday for me and my partner to send. This was fun to make as it was different. I had some flower embleshiments tha I wanted to use I found this paper in my stash and put the two together. I chalked the edge of the card after I had cut it to define it from the back bit and then finished it off with a printed out Birthday greeting double mounted.

As you can tell I was busy for her birthday and also that butterflies are her favourite!!!

Challenge 6 - Monochrome Madness

Challenge 6 - Monochrome Madness.
This is card I have done for my mother-in -law to give to her daughter for her birthday. This was inspired by your challenge. She is very happy with it and I was too. The card is cutout down the edge to reveal a glitter card band. On the front I used a mixture of sliver peel off butterflies coloured in black ink and silver pen and three 3D decorative peel off butterfly stickers. The braid down the edge is a finishing touch I added and then I printed out the words and double mounted them in glitter card and black card.

Hope you like!! Cheers Lisa

Shabby Flower - DIY Flowers

This is a card for the DIY Flowers. This is a card for Grandma, My children call their grandma 'Mama' so this was made for her on her birthday. It is patterned strips from Papercraft and all I have done is punch out lots of different sorts and sizes and laid them out together as a cluster. I then topped some of them with gems to give a sparkle. The word mama is froma co-ordinating strip and then I used a happy birthday peel-off.

H is for the Heart

H is for Heart...
This is our card for the ABC challenge. This is a card that was created to be a lilttel different to the most cards we create. So it is slightly smaller than A5 and we have used the mix of gold mirrior card and patterned papers. we wanted it to open differently so that is whay we cut it the way we have.

I hope you enjoy!
