Birthdays & Butterflies

I am so in love with these adorable Butterflies from the 3-D Sparkly Garden Brads from the Deal of the Month.  They add just a little bit of whimsy to this card.  I also used the Orange Fancy Felt Flowers on the stamped leaves and the Purple Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon as an accent on this card.  I love this embossing folder for this card because it provides the perfect backdrop for the inset.        

This center fold step card was such fun to make.  I love cards that are unique and different.  I also used the 3-D Butterfly on this card but this time in the green and  included the Sparkly Floral gems from the 3D Sparkly Garden Brad collection.  The same stamp was used for the stem on this card.

Wedding Bells and Happy Birthday!!

  This was a Black & White themed wedding and the Black & white Shimmer Flowers from the Simplicity collection were the perfect accent for this layout. And now these gorgeous flowers are now on sale until July 31, 2011.  Go check out all the other Simplicity items that are on sale too!

Here is a closeup of the Shimmer flowers.  I removed the pearl brads (to be used on another card or layout) and replaced them with the White Vintage Brads to add a little more glitz

Here is a birthday card I made using the Gradient Pearl Stickers in white.  They always add just the right touch to any card or layout.  The background was embossed and edges inked and a Green & White Fancy Polka Dot ribbon was added.  The flowers were colored with copics and layered on a Spellbinder Oval Frame.  The frame was accented with the pearl stickers.
