Pink Birthday

My favorite colour these days is pink so I decided it was time to make a pink card.  I made this one for Splitcoast's sketch challenge SC395.  I used the SU Create a Cupcake stamp set along with the co-ordinating punch.  The cupcake is popped up with dimensionals and the  top has glitter on it (hard to see in the picture). Thanks for looking.

Colour Challenge

It's been a very busy week so I haven't had time to get back to card-making until today. Today's card is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC63 Colour Challenge - Lime, Aqua and Navy. I bought SU's lace ribbon border punch quite a while ago but this is the first time I'm using it.  I punched the border out of SU cool caribbean, wove navy 1/8 taffeta ribbon through it and then tied the ends into a kiwi kiss corduroy button.  The sentiment is from SU Kind and Caring Thoughts.  Hope you like it.

Back in Black

I finally re-organized my craft room so now I have space to be creative again. For a long time now I've only been making cards when I needed one for a birthday or an occasion.  I'm looking forward to getting back to creating for the pure joy of it. I started today with this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge (CFC62 Back in Black).
I used SU's Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch and Square Lattice embossing folder (my new favorite!). I punched the triple layer flowers out of each of the three colours, glued all the flowers except the orange center to the black background and then ran it through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice folder. The orange centre is popped up using Dollar store dimensionals. I punched the Word Window, mounted the card front on white and then stamped in the sentiment. Hope you like it...
