At the moment I seem to be snowed under with commission cards - not that I'm complaining but they all seem to come at once and not often ideal for challenges :-(
Anyway I've a couple to show that might just sneak in;
First up is for a rugby mad teenager hitting a 'special' birthday. Having raided my stock I couldn't find anything rugby related. After a bit of web-surfing I came across this image on the internet that's quite fun. I'm entering my card into the Seize the Sketch challenge. It's a great sketch this week and I've been looking at it for the last week or so wondering whether I'd ever get around to using it...
Papers: Pink Petticoat & Echo Park
Sentiment: Computer generated
Tools: MFT Die-namics - fishtail flags, chevrons & high rise numbers
Sizzix Framelits - stars and circles
From my stash: silver twine, glitter card and button plus I've added glossy accents to highlight some of my rugby player.
Next up is to head over to Simon Says Stamp where the theme is Mother's Day or Special Girl card and this is a Mother's Day card for my MIL. During the week I placed a little order at Craft Mojo and this beautiful butterfly die from Joy Crafts just jumped into my basket so couldn't wait to have a play with it when it arrived earlier.
Image: I've stamped dandelion heads from the Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams set onto vellum then heat embossed with white embossing powder. the flower heads are then drizzled with glossy accents, mini beads and glamour dust.
Sentiment: Clearly Besotted - Fabulous Fushia stamp set
From my stash: Pink leafy paper, bakers twine and pearls
