Happy Happenings - Happy Birthday


I'm so happy to be posting again! My craft room is finally unpacked and in working order! I'm still getting used to my new surroundings - but not complaining at all!

I'm taking part in this week's Global Design Project - this week is a CASE the Designer ( Connie Collins ) challenge!

My card this week is also made with the birthday of a wonderful lady in mind...

Pink, White and Glitter!

Connie's beautiful inspiration!

Up close and personal!

My Product List

Hints & Things
  •  I heat embossed my Bloomin' Heart Thinlit (die cut from Kraft cardstock) with Gold Stampin' Glitter - feel free to use Gold Glimmer Paper. I do think the glitter makes for a beautiful gold effect! I added an extra layer of  glittery flowers to 3 of the solid flowers.
  • For my pink flowers I used 3 punched flowers of the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack  and shaped them with my fingers to form tiny flower buds - to these I added extra shimmer with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.
  • The stunning Pink enamel glitter dots are from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.
  • Vellum adds an extra layer and helps make the card even softer.
A card for a very special person! Happy Birthday Sandy!

I hope that you will pop in again next time - Charlize's 8th birthday is coming up and I will be sharing some projects surrounding that.

Take care!
