This card is 8 1/2 by3 1/2 so it fits a standard envelope (of course you have to Bling it up), and will hold cash or a check nicely. Here I show cased 3 different looks to Gilli, or they could be friends:) Come play with us at House of Gilli for this Challenge. You have a few days left.

Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge 50 : Inspired by a Nursery Rhyme

Hello Everyone,
This is one of my kids favorite songs. When my daughter was born, and still in the hospital my 5yr son sang this to her. When my niece was born, my daughter then 5yr. sang it to her. Every baby born since has had this sung to them by their sibling or cousin. Oh, so sweet. For this card I air brushed the night sky with several different blues, and blue violets to get this look, and the stars are done with the blender pen. I also used the new Copic RV's 63,66 on my little girls dress. I decided this would be a good thinking of you card. You can find the lovely digi HERE and come join the fun at Fairy Fun Fridays.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #43 Recipie

Hello Everyone,
I'm hosting the challenge this week and it is a recipe. Use Yellow as the main color and these tree embellishments, ribbon,stitching(real or faux) and rhinestones.
I thought for this time of year yellow would be prefect. I love this card, it came together very nicely. I started with 2 shape bases that I cut with my Cricut and then layered it in a darker shade of yellow. I pierced and faux stitched around the outside shape with black pen. I stamped and clear embossed the darker shape with a background stamp. I inked up some word paper with yellow and then die cut with a scallop square and attached to front of card and stitched up and down three times over the left two squares. To finish off I added some ribbon, embellishments, and a sentiment. Come join us HERE for the Challenge.

Enjoy and CRAFT ON!!
