I am back!

My apologies for being away for some time, have been quite busy with trying to complete projects that have been put aside.
I had made some birthday cards in the past week and would love to share them with you.
This is a Mo Manning Digital Image and I just loved it.  It was a birthday card for my daughter's milestone birthday.  The image was coloured with Copic markers and a little bit of crystal sparkles, tiny pearls and clear stones on brown and red cardstock with velvet ribbon on the side.
This card has the vintage look made for my daughter's 25th birthday.  Blue and yellow cardstock which has an opening in front that shows the black vintage girl image on a round black and white cardstock.  Embellished with Stampin-Up floral image which has been stamped and cut out.  Each flower has a pearl in the centre and a touch of glitter...you may have noticed that I just love pearls!

This is such an elegant card I made for my friend  by using pink cardstock as the base, with a layer of white Cuttlebug Swiss Dots paper.  The frame (from pink paislee) is raised to highlight the painted image of  Stampin-Up florals which mimics a framed picture.  I also used a small piece of acrylic to act as a piece of glass.  The frame has been spritzed and tiny pearls added.  The satin ribbon is a darker shade of pink.

Hope you will return to check up on me!  Please leave a comment, I love reading them.
