PURPLE & LOTS BLING that was what I was told when I asked my daughter Emily if she had any requests for her birthday card, my first thought was OK, but then the panic set in & I had to go through that pile of patterned paper that I have accumululated over the years & I managed to find some paper that Emily has asked to use before so I knew at least she liked it then the search was back on then for cardstock I new matched so back into the house from the studio searching for the cardstock (yes can you beleive i have been in my studio for more than 5months & I still have stuff inside in the office cupboards). Cardstock found I then decided to use one of the Mojo Monday sketches & this is what I came up with a little to blingy for my liking but I know she will love it. I even tried outling the picture in light grey like the professionals (mine doesn't look very professional but its OK for my first time. So here it is I hope you don't get blinded by the reflection of the bling.

My card today is the second card we made at the same workshop as the Birdie Punch gift box, again the hostess requested a card using the Eastern Blooms set its her favourite & I know she liked a card I posted previously, so I tried keeping the card quite simple for the new stampers but blinged it up a bit with the chunky glitter & mounting up one of the flowers. At the workshop we substituted the Kiwi Kiss with Old Olive it was a much more complimentry.
Stamp Set: Eastern Blooms & A Little Birthday Cheer
Cardstock: Tempting turquiose & whisper white
Ink: melon mambo, tempting turquiose, pumpkin pie & kiwi kiss.
Chunky Glitter & Eyelet border punch

This card was made using the Top Note die , flowers & greeting from the Vintage Vogue set finished off with Rhinestone brads from the Pretties Kit & grosgrain ribbon.
This card again uses the Top Note die from the Bigshot range but this time I have cut off the perforations on the white piece to allow for the Night of Navy border.
This card is a similar card to what is in the catalogue but I have finished it of with some Hodgepodge Hardware & grosgrain ribbon.
my last card in this set uses the flower again but finished off this time with pearls from the Petties Kit.
