Wish Big…

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this challenge with the theme  “Moon and/or Stars”. I love the blue colors and twinkling stars from the mood board and used that as inspiration for my card.  Please visit the Double D Challenge blog DD_MoonStarsand see more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

I decided on an image from the Graphic 45 series ”Secret Garden” for my background. I die cut two stars, added fairy glitter and layered it with mirror tape on the base card for dimension. I finished off with  bows, paper roses, more gemstone stars and a sentiment. This was a quick and easy shabby card to make. I hope the recipient will love it!

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Hello friends,

It’s Monday and time for a new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! Our challenge is called ‘BOO-riffic” and you can create a card or any project inspired by the inspiration photo on The Shabby Tea Room blog. The sponsor is Paper Sweeties and the winner will receive a $20 gift certificate from the Paper Sweeties boutique!

I’ve got something created in purple and black to share for this challenge – lace, pearls and lots of stamped roses. This is some of my favorite things to use on cards. The stamped roses, leaves and sentiment are from the Paper Sweeties Party Time bundle (stamps and dies set) & “You make Me Smile” sentiment set. Hope you’ll allow yourself some time to play along this fortnight at The Shabby Tea Room.

For My Mum

Hello friends,

A card for a special mother to share today. I decided not to use designer paper as background but strips of washi tape and a Spellbinders heart shape die cut. The watering can is from a Paper Sweeties die cut and stamp set “Showering You With Love”. I added a few tiny roses, leaves, gemstones, bow and a sentiment and all is done. I love the simplicity of the card although it still have the shabby chic look.

I would love to enter my card in the following challenges:
