...we've got just a little bit before the humongous storm system heading our way hits.  So, I've got 2 bright cards to show you!!! :)

Here's the first one~


This card is for these challenges~

I had a lot of fun using different textures on this card.  I stamped my under the seahorses and elements, ran the panel through my dry embossing machine, sponged the "waves", added crackle accents, used Prima crystals as bubbles, and used a gold gel pen to create a sandy bottom.  My sentiment is covered in glossy accents with some Prima crystals anchoring the bottom of it.  TONS of fun.  I really wasn't sure how it would come out, and I am pleasantly surprised!!!

Now onto the second card~


This card is for these challenges~

This one was also really fun to make and I had a blast creating my flower!!!  I used the baby wipe reinker technique to create a stamp pad for my flower images.  I used up some more of the green butterflies I had made for this card, as I do not like to waste.  And some Aurora Borealis Prima crystals for some added sparkle!

So, there ya go!  I also used some more of the green butterflies to create a panel that I'll be using in the near future.  Fancy a peek?!

Here it is~

Also, have you checked out Technique Tuesday?  I'm hoping this will be a great success, but I need YOUR help to make it one!  Won't you join me, please! 

And with that, I say good night, all!  Hope you have a restful Sunday!  Happy stamping!!! :)
