Fusion Card Challenge

When I saw this gorgeous inspiration photo, I was inspired and knew I had to participate!! This is my take on the challenge over at the Fusion Card Challenge blog

I went a bit shabby chic with this card. This is a tall card, perfect for wedding celebrations. Tattoo patterned paper pieces adhered to a Rustic Cream card base (PTI) , a lovely strip of lace with satin aqua ribbon threaded through. Then for the focal point, I die cut that lovely frame from PTI's Gatsby Glamour set and inked the edges with aqua chalk ink. I cut out a banner from Bountiful Banners, also PTI, added the sentiment in Cocoa and also inked the edges. Added various patterned and aqua ombre colored flowers and some white seam binding to finish it off. 
Such fun creating this card...that inspiration photo is so gorgeous I may not stop at one card. But for now, have a wonderful week and craft on!

All That Glitters is Gold

Metallics have made a comeback into the crafting world, which makes me a happy camper add I love the elegance gold and silver can add to a project. Virginia's View Challenge this month celebrates this return
I am all too eager to play along, such lovely inspiration too!

I started with a cream card base and layered mint, good polka dot paper on the bottom. Then a little lace strip to soften it follows by extremely glitzy gold, start filled glider tape. Good embossing on the sentiment, embossed vellum with gold and white add an ethereal elegance all finished of with some gold sequins.

Here is a close up:

Curtain Call: Boho Bright

 Well yes, I'm back after a thoroughly long break...I have been under the weather, so blog posts tend to become scarce when that happens. In any case, my inspiration today is from the lovely photo from the Curtain Call Challenge- Boho Bright. Love the colors and vibrant and wanted too channel that in the card. I used three lovely stamp sets from Papertrey Ink for my florals, Bold Bouquet, Embellished Elegance and the set from the kit Beautiful Brushstrokes. I added a strip of lace in the back to soften things you, a translucent fuschia bow and colorful sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The sentiment and surrounding frame is also frome Beautiful Brushstrokes. I just love the font! Enjoy your week and as always...craft on!
