Birthday Beauty

The colours for this card are Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. I used my Shimmer Paint again.....have I told you before how much I love this stuff..... and the pearl rhinestones they are just so cute and so easy to handle especially the really little ones.... I stamped Baroque Motifs as my background stamp. I also used the new edge punch as well. The butterfly's are cut and embossed from the bigshot. I have been looking for where I got the inspiration for this card but I obviously didn't save it just remembered it but I no it had birds instead of butterfly's and I did see it a while ago it just been bugging me ever since to get out of my head so I has appeared here.

40th Birthday Card for a special friend.

I have fallen in love with Shimmer Paint. I have used it here to watercolour the cupcakes and the stand. I have also attached small pearls in place of the cherries on top. The card looks way better IRL. I was rushing out the door last nite to the party and realised I hadn't taken a picture, thats why it hasn't turned out so well, because I had to use the flash. I have also used the elegant lines embossing die and some organza ribbon. The colours are Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy. I mixed the Shimmer Paint with my inkers with the aqua painter and it turned out really well. I look forward to experimenting with this some more.

6 year old birthday card

For those of you who keep checking back on me, I want to say thank you, you certainly are loyal readers. I made this card today only two weeks late for my son's birthday, I think that's me at the minute running about two weeks late.....lol..... I used the colour coach to find my colours being Daffodil delight, Old Olive & Night of Navy. I must say I have reorganised everything into their new colour groups and I can't find anything. But I did get the card finished so that is a start. I think everything is pretty easy to figure out but if you need any details let me no....Have a good day....
