Birthday Flowers

Hi Everyone, well this is a card made for the A la Card Monkey Challenge, with Terry and Shirley. They have some simple sketches to use and a theme to go with them. It's a great challenge for all types of stampers, beginners to advance, so go over and take a look. Anyway I used the set Called Button Buddies on this card. The vase was stamped twice and cut out and put on with dimensionals to give it a 3d look, The flowers are buttons in perfect plum and rose red. ribbon is also rose red, it's the seam binding ribbon, love it. the sentiment is from Perfect Pairs. and I used the Striped embossing folder on the black background and added rose red paper to it, from the subtles stack of papers. I did the stripes up and down so it kind of reminds me of wainscotting. I finished off the card by adding some rhinestones to the vase, in the corner and on the sentiment.
Thanks for looking.

Here is my card for this weeks A La Card Monkey Challenge. It's been a while since I've been on their blog, Terri, and Shirley are great, you really should take a look at their blog. Anyway I've just been busy with shows, and a dinner that I was the organizer for which was held last night for 30 seniors, now things are slowing down again, I do have one more show next weekend, then that will be it for a while.
The card stock used is Early Espresso, More Mustard, Pool Party, The ribbon is the 5/8 Satin ribbon in Early espresso, I used the Triple Treat Flower Stamp to make the flower, punching out each layer, the sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. Thanks for looking

Anything Christmas

Over at Come and Get It this week we have anything Christmas, This is the card I made for our theme. I used the cracked glass technique once again, stamped it in Soft Suede, then layered clear embossing powder over it and melted it and put in some glass glitter during the 3 layer, then added one extra layer before I cracked it. I then mounted it on Real Red card stock. I put it on to a piece of soft suede that I had embossed with the square lattice die, then did the ribbon treatment, which is just folding the ribbon back and forth to make 2 loops on either side, I tied it with string, then I made the centre piece. which is one of the Autumn spice buttons, with a layer of Real Red, and very vanilla, then stamped the holly from the Tags till Christmas set, and added the gold embossed sticker lettering, Peace, Love and Joy. Thanks for looking.
Cindy I will also enter my card into the following two challenges.
