Celebrating Gold!

This was a difficult challenge for me...but I finally got it!
I am playing the Paper Smooches 'GOLD' challenge today. 
I decided to use the sentiment from the 'scripted sayings' stamp set to create a background and the cocktail 'wise dies' glasses ( cut from shimmery white card stock) as the focal point. 
the god heart is dry embossed using  a Cuttlebug folder and I heat embossed two gold stars from the same stamp set onto the vellum. I finished off with some gold and white sequins.

I just love the way it has turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
Have a great day!

Monochrome with a splash of colour

 Hey there!
I am playing the retrosketches RS#189 challenge with this card.
I decided to play with a monochromatic colour theme with a pop of colour...I was so happy to find this paper pack...I had forgotten I had it! It is the 'Mono Paper Pack' from Paper mania.

I decided to over lay the papers with vellum(..just 'cause I liked the printed paper so much) and stitched the vellum paper on with white embroidery floss.
The flowers  and leaves are made using punches and the sentiment is a peel-off sticker from Anita's.

New roses from Winnie and Walter

Hey there!
I recently received my prize from Winnie and Walter and couldn't wait to play with it!! I just adore these roses die from Winnie and Walter and it seemed really perfect for this sketch.
The sentiment is from Paper smooches 'scripted sayings' stamp set and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

I just love the muted vintage feel!

I am also playing  The Simon Says Stamp Monday 'Thanks" challenge with this card.

For the second card, I created a Memento ink and watercolour background, added a piece of heat embossed (background stamp from Hero Arts) and added a couple of dry embossed butterfly die cuts with foam tape to add dimension. 
I finished the card with a heat embossed sentiment from Hero Arts.

Indian Craft Room is having  a monthly challenge with this Flavour Board which has been created by the very taltented Pratyusha!
