Last one... Today

I have finished another card! This time it is for CAS-UAL Fridays

To participate I have to use Material... So i chose Ribbon, as I'm not a sewing fan.
Here is my entry...

Im in love with the new Neutrals colour- SMOKEY SLATE... and I think it goes well with Pool Party (Another fav of mine)

I used the Mosaic Madness stamp set as well as Sketched Birthday and Hearts a Flutter. I also used the Framelets Hearts a flutter and Bitty Banners and the Mosaic Embossing Folder and Punch. The ribbon is Pool Party and i finished it off with a Rhinestone!

Well thats all tonight- Im on my way out soon to a PARTY!

❤ ing the new In Colours!

Last night I attended a Launch Party run by some FANTASTIC Demonstrators from the Central Coast- It was great to see a hall FULL of ladies paper crafting. This year it wasn't all cards, there was 3D projects too- they were all beautiful (The demos and the projects!!!)

This is one of the 3 cards I was lucky enough to make

Today I decided to participate in the Friday Mashup Challenge, it's a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I chose...
Pearls, Ribbon, Flowers! Awesome!!!

I sat down and looked at my stamp sets and picked up the 5-way flower which is really beautiful! It can be used in so many ways...

Then I had to decide on the colours! That was easy- THE NEW IN-COLOURS!!!

Here is the flower after I had punched out the Scallops

Here is the completed flower and then my card- I love everything about it!
