A Pretty Pink Happy Birthday.

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
Christmas cards are done and dusted and are all on their way so - 
time for playing with my favourite retired 
SU Botanical Blooms Set

Made for Color Hues for their current challenge
Color Hues #77 with the beautiful soft
pink/silver combo
and the
are celebrating their
5th Birthday Bash.

Don't you love milestone challenges!
I am also sending this over to their regular one
but without their optional twist of Snowman/or Birds
I'm afraid a snowman would melt in seconds here at the moment
with near #40c phew!

I die cut the front with white card stock
using a peek a boo die from MFT
then lightly inked Tim's stone stencil
with Hickory Smoke.
Die cut a SB square larger than the front
with pink card stock for the base.
Die cut leaves are heat embossed in
SU Silver and flowers coloured with
Lindy's Alpine Ice Rose and Oom Pah Pah Pink.
Added scattered gems to the leaves and
one to the main flower.
Sentiment inside is STAMPlorations Carved Flowers
which fitted perfectly behind the cut opening.
Certainly a hard card to photograph.
Thanks Nancy for choosing such a gorgeous color hue
for us this month.
Thanks also for taking time out to comment.

Simply 'Merry Christmas'

It's the last challenge of the year at 
and my last card as I am stepping down
as a Designer. I have so enjoyed being part of the
fabulous friendly Sistah's and I know they will
continue to impress you with their craft skills
and encourage you to add yours to their Gallery in the New Year.

Our challenge is simply CHRISTMAS!
so go all out , have fun and
add yours to our Gallery. I know it will be full of
amazing Christmas creations.

I found the pretty paper I used on my die cut trees
in my stash - had it for years!
Embossed background is an old CB Christmas one.
Added some gold cord, bow and pearls.
Sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Card stock/base are metallic gold.

Thanks so much Darlene and  Sistah's
for the wonderful time I had as part of the Team.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Silver Decorations for Christmas

It's sooooooooooo close to Christmas
and I am sure you haven't finished your cards yet have you?
 Christmas Craft Creations have their last challenge for the year
so a great chance to quickly finish them up by entering our
Christmas Decorations Theme

I went with an old CB embossing folder for my background
then added a MFT oval die that I had
adhered my silver Christmas Decorations to.
Die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment.
Framed in silver onto white card base.
A really CAS card that would be so easy
to do multiples of.
Hop over and check out what has been added to
Our Blog by the Talented Design Team.
Hope to see yours there.
Thanks for visiting throughout the year
with your kind comments.
May you have a
Merry Christmas 
with Family and Friends and I will be back
in the New Year to do it all over again.
