I found and bought this digi image....... ( www.bugaboostamps.com ) whilst browsing the web which I have made into a birthday card for my son's girlfriend. I hope she will see it as funny as am NOT suggesting she is a lush!!!

I used copic and promarkers to colour the image, glitter stars and hearts and shreds of glitter for the drink, ribbon from stash, and the jewel was sewn onto bow. The floor was brown textured card matted onto dark glitter card. The ink PM orange was applied to the outer edges of the image. The background candle paper was cricut beyond birthdays provo craft.
Hope that is everything and that you like it.

Both cards are using Dovecraft fantasy paper, butterfly dreams funstamp,Time to enjoy hero art stamp, (onto brown card).
Heat embossing in gold on the butterfly body and the label edges, silver dragonflies and gel pen, sparkly blue thread also on butterfly body.

A simple white card!

This card is simply stated for a friend.

I used 6x6 linen card-stock topped with white card which was cuttlebugged using the distressed stripe embossing folder.

The sentiment is computer generated and the tag holding it has been Smooch spritzed.
Lily flowers have been tied with a satin ribbon and backed with white net.
Both tags have been given a sheen with cosmic shimmer in enchanted lilac.
Mega nesties curved rectangle was used to die cut the tags which have been mounted on foam 3D pads.
I hope you like it.....
