Manhattan Rose Anniversary

Using the gorgeous Manhattan Rose embossing folder here with astral effect card, and cream card for the base, embossed the sentitment using text from my computer and embossed with fine gold embossing powder, finished off with 2 cream cream flat backed pearls for the centre of the flowers and another 3 for a slight decoration down the side.

This week Stamp Something Challenge asked for a 'Wedding theme' so my Wedding Anniversary card fitted the bill. This was also suitable for the One Stop Craft Challenge where an embossed card was called for. Do pop over to these 2 sites and see what wonderful work the design teams have done.

Ten minute balloons

This is the easiest card I have ever done, used a Provacraft die cut to stamp out the 3 balloons, stuck black thread on the back of each one, and stuck them onto the card with foam pads. The text was computer generated. It is for the Flourishes' Easy Breezy Challenge a card that takes no more than 10minutes to make.
