It's Music Music Music

Our colour challenge over at Outlawz this week  is Red Green & White and was chosen by Guylou and her twist - which we have every week is  ADD MUSIC.
Don't you just love these guys - could be 4 Tenors.

And where would we be without our generous sponsors. This month we have

and here is what I made as part of the Design Team
 for inspiration for our many members.

It was a fairly simple card to make just adding red & green paper 
after I embossed with swiss dots and some music notes.
Added my popped & glittered shamrock  from a Spellbinder cut out 
and attached a small piece of Irish ribbon to match.

It's Vintage with Layers & Lace

Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog

Here we are already into our 5th Challenge over at 
Crafting with Dragonflies. 
It only seems like yesterday we were the new
'Blog on the Block'

And now we are moving on to
Our New Challenge for you which is

Our Sponsors for this challenge are

who generously supplied the DT with our choice of images.

I chose French Love Letter - perfect for the theme of my card PARIS.


Here is my card

I started with black cs and topped it with scripted dp.
Added layers with blue floral print and a pale rose pink paper.
Both these have been pierced around the edges.
Behind the main focal image are some Spellbinder flourishes.
For the main image I stamped the Eiffel Tower over the 
French Love Letter Script
and then various other stamps randomly on the page. 
All stamps are from Kaisercraft
Inked the edges with black to highlight.
Sponged with Peacock Feathers & Victorian Velvet Distress Inks and gold shimmer.
I also sponged my double bow with ribbon from Kazazz with Victorian Velvet 
and placed a few pearls to add the final touch.

Hope you like what I have made for your inspiration 
and you will pop over to my other Design Team Friends 
to see what lovely Vintage they have made for you too.

Once you have done that we would love to see

Inspiration from Just Us Girls Challenge #194

I found this fabulous inspiration challenge and just had to enter. 
I love the bright colours of yellow black and white as they always seem so fresh.

I thought for this challenge CAS would be perfect
 to showcase the colours so here is what I made


Started with the basic white card stock and topped with 
a layer of swiss dots embossed paper.
Loved the bright yellow and though it a perfect highlight
 by using the good oldSpellbinders Fleur de Lis
I then showcased the white with the Marianne Quinn Flourish Die
and added a folded black & white flower topped with a yellow button.
Finished with a strip of black velvet ribbon and a sentiment for Stampin' Up.

A nice cheerful cas card suitable for any occasion.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
