Card making begins


Color Throwdown- light lavender, darker purple, orange, grass green. CTD563

Cute Card Thursday- Anything Goes

Cut out paper, sizzex machine, die cut butterfly and leaves, corner flower stamp, chrysanthemum stamp, purple dye ink pad, turquoise sparkle embossing powder., embossing folder,pastels,  orange stickles, gem.

I had this paper cutout from a long time ago because I used a cut out on another paper.  I added the pearl paper behind and used the sizzex for the embossing folder and brushed a purple dye ink over top to showcase the bottom.. I stamped the border corners and the flower in purple and heat embossed it in turquoise glitter. I coloured the flower with pastels. I used the sizzex to cut the leaves and butterfly using those die cuts. I added orange stickles around the border and the gem in the corner. I hope to kick things into high gear and start making cards before Christmas. Oops sorry for that word. 

Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Hi, Birgit!

    I have remarked in the past how much I admire your use of color and this Anything Goes card featuring a combo of lavender, purple, orange and green, is another fine example. I love the flowers, fern and butterfly. This card would be ideal for a woman friend or family member. Do you have a lucky recipient in mind?

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend BB!

  8. I like the way your butterfly pops in that card. I can believe it's flying towards the flowers.

  11. Thank you everyone for your love of my card. I really appreciate it. I am still dizzy and tired but getting my tooth out on the 21st and getting my results of the biopsy on the 22nd.
