Sarah Kay Birthday Card - Papertake Weekly Challenge

What terrible weather we have had today - at least I don't feel
guilty crafting, even though I have several flower pots which need attention !
I have a few birthday cards to make this week and this is my first girly one.
I have used a Sarah Kay stamp and free download papers from Shabby Princess -
Harvest spice, I think the colours are gorgeous and just love the paper ribbon.
I have added a couple of Maya Road felt flowers with different gold brads.
Thanks for looking.

Dutch Dare Card Challenge

This is my girly card for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge
this week. I love the Tilda stamps they are so versatile.
Thanks for looking.

Graphicus Guild Stamp- Scrummy Stash Cafe Challenge

I have been 'itching' to use this lovely stamp which was part
of welcome pack from Graphicus Guild. I think it just lends
itself beautifully when a quick card is needed. I stamped it in
Versacolour - Violet, then embossed with clear powder. I coloured
with Whispers pens, mounted onto dark and light violet mats and then
silver mirri card. Embellished with violet ribbon and stones. I think
this is a really pretty little card and is my entry into the Scrummy
Stash Cafe Challenge.
Thanks for looking

CSF Challenge - Christmas

I have really enjoyed making this challenge for a forum that
I am on. I have covered the card with Basic Grey Figgy paper,
matted my Let It Snow stamp onto silver mirri card and then onto
another mat covered with the Figgy paper and finished by adding a
couple of brads and ribbon onto the corners. Thanks for looking.

Tilda & Co - Challenge 32

Here is my card for Tilda & Co - Cold as Ice challenge 32

I have covered my card with Sandylion paper. I then stamped with
small snowflake stamp onto white card using both white and blue
embossing powders, then overstamped with large snowflake stamp
a couple of times with dark blue powder. This I then used as a mat
for more of the backing paper matted onto card and stapled the
ribbons to. Tilda was stamped with blue ink and clear embossed onto
white card, matted onto two blue mats, coloured with felt pens and
gelly roll pen. I have used clear glitter glue to highlight Tilda, this is
really sparkly but doesn't show up too well on the pic. I added 3 clear
stones to finish.

Thanks for looking.
