My daughter and all her friends are turning 21 so I have had the luxury of making lots of really special cards. These are for a few of the girls. I have used a mixture of papers old and new, and some non SU flowers, numbers and bits and bobs from my stash - "the useful box" as they used to call it on Playschool.
The first card meets the challenge criteria at JAI#272 to just add butterflies - and who can resist the Papillion Potpourri image. I have heat embossed it in black and coloured in with blender pens before punching three out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and then glamming them up a bit with some shimmer paint.
The second sample has no butterflies but a really cute little birthday cake of flowers from Blooming with Happiness. This gorgeous stamps set is sadly retired, but a friend has lent it to me and I've had loads of fun using it. Blender pens were used again to colour in the flowers and then more shimmer paint. Sprinkles of Life again made this card quite quick using the Tree Builder Punch to make the cupcake inside.
Thanks for looking,
