Two different card styles...

I've got two cards to share with you tonight.  It's been a crazy day and I am so tired...so I'm keeping it quick!

First card~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~


(I used pearls, flowers, stamp)
SSBingo


I started by drenching a doily with my blue homemade glimmer mist and adding it to some patterned paper with ribbon on top.  I layered a sentiment from wonderful Jane Austen (one of my favorite authors!) with some punches flowers and leaves then added bling!  The pictures are not as good as IRL--the "black" is really navy blue paper...let's get on with this...

Second card~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~


(used some of my rhinestone stash and die cuts I forgot I had)

(used my rhinestone stash & the cloud dies I forgot I had)


I've had this Dienamics cloud die set for about 2 months and haven't used it until now!  WHY?!  I have not clue.  I added a PTI sentiment that I haven't used yet and some other punches with a few rhinestones to create this fun sky scene.

Thanks for stopping by--hope you like what you see and join in these fabulous challenges!  Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette - beautiful blue card with a great saying... and I just love the card with the clouds!

These are both gorgeous in completely different ways Mynnette - I love the romance of the first with those beautifully sprinkled gems and I love the clean-ness of the second with the mix of negative and positive die cut clouds! Vicky x
