Now with the important information out of the way
Here is my card for this SPECIAL OCCASION.
I saw a very similar card on Pinterest and loved it so much
especially as I had the same embossing folder so decided to
case it. You can see the details Here
These are the products I used on my card -
Metallic Paper
Darice Embossing Folder
The background paper is from my stash and
thought it would go perfectly with the shimmery card stock
Spellbinders Fancy Tags
Cherry Lynn Butterfly
Sentiment - JustRite Labels 20 stamped with
Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany and popped.

Please check out OUR BLOG for all the beautiful
 cards the Design Team created
including some Special Guests
Nancy Penir Geri Bailly and Judy Woodland 
with our July Guest - Linda Beeson
Welcome Linda.
Hope to see your Congratulations Creation
HERE but don't forget (and it will be hard)
to limit them to 3
Gotta be in it to WIN IT!!!
I thought I would sneak the following card in
because it is from one of our Generous Sponsors
As it is an Australian Site I have
quite a number of their stamps/papers etc
and I am entering it in their Monthly Challenge
June-IBSIC95---Color, Inspired by Stamping
Because I had the beautiful
Vintage Rose Paper Pack 
I used that as part of the colours above.
I cut out 8 random squares from my
Spellbinder Die and popped them
on pink card stock after inking the edges.
My card base and backing are an iridescent pearl paper.
Sentiment is from Stampin' Up - Heard from the Heart.
Butterfly from Cherry Lynn in pink and vellum
Finished with some pearls.
Thanks for dropping in and checking my
longer than usual posting.

It's Red White and Bluey Stars

There are a few challenges that I am entering my card below in
They are the Colour Challenge from

That gave me the idea to use another stamp from
Repeat Impressions. Awesome!

Here is what products I used -
