Birthday Blog Hop

Here's a little birthday card I made using the Eiffel tower from the retired SU! set Paris in the Spring.  I also used the Happy Birthday from Delightful Dahlia (PTI). 
The scalloped layer is actually some of that glitter paper.  The rhinestones are Martha Stewart.

CQC #42 and FTL #99

I am so happy I found Arielle's Colour Q Challenge site.  I never would have paired these colors up on my own, and it was great to work with them.  I also used the FTL on Clean&Simple to create this one.  I love their layouts! 
The only Tangerine Tango I had was from the textured In Color sampler, so I decided to use that as the base for my card.  This card is 3.5x6 inches. 

I used the now retired set True Friend by Stampin' Up!  I love this stamp set.  I usually use the sentiment that came with the set, but this time decided to go with one from Say It With Style by PTI.  The large flower I used the Rock n' Roll technique.  I stamped on the So Saffron pad first, than rolled the outer edge of the stamp on the Real Red stamp pad.  I added some Pure Poppy buttons to the centers and -There it is!

OTWC #16 and Moxie Fab Classy & Elegant

This is the first I've played along with the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge.  I love love LOVE the picture collage. This card is also for the Card Style Classy and Elegant for the Moxie Fab World Blog Here
I bought this paper at a national chain called Paper Source.  They have some of the most beautiful paper I've ever seen.  This is Japanese paper with Cherry Blossoms in Pink and a coordinating pink scalloped design.
I matted the Japanese paper on light pink pearl cardstock. From the above picture you can see that the Japanese paper is a beautiful pearl.  The sentiment (from Damask Designs PTI) I stamped in silver. I added small paper flowers with pearl centers to balance the card design.
I found this little white button that looked just like the blossoms which I stitched to the bow.
From the amount of pictures, you can tell I love this card.  I'm not sure when or who I will give it to, but I will be sad to see it go when it does.

CQC #41

I know Pink Passion is a bit more purple than this, but I really liked this glitter paper I had in my stash.  The flowers are cut in Raspberry Fizz felt by PTI. 
I used a pearl pink and silver on the scalloped edge, along with some SU! Gray Taffeta Ribbon.  The sentiment is PTI.
My husband even offered his input - he suggested I mat the felt on a circle of gray to help it stand out.  I think he was right.

Color Q #40

I threw this together last night.  Not sure if I'm satisfied with the end result.  Anyway, I did use some PTI background stamps on the Barely Banana, Cameo Coral and Bermuda Bay.

Bright and Cheery

Hello All!  I picked up this American Crafts paper at the local scrapbook store.  I couldn't pass up these bright and fun summer colors.  I paired the patterned paper with Daffodil Delight and added Berry Sorbet (PTI) buttons.  I also cut out some of the flowers from the patterned paper and mounted them with foam tape.  This card is actually based on a card video done by Kristina Werner.
