Tickled Pink Challenges & a Party Duo

LOL!!  I have a bit of a picture heavy post for you today. I seem to make more cards than I can blog lately - good complaint I guess. 

First up is my entry to Tickled Pink Stamps challenge, which is themed Blinging it Up. I am using the gorgeous 20's Evie, and Webster's Pages papers which have been distressed and inked. I've also added Star Dust to the edges of all my papers.

Loads of Prima bling and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers........

Sentiment by Lili of the Valley, hand cut as I found the circle nesties left too much border and the smaller one was just too small.

Just about everything on my card has been stickled to within an inch.... it sure sparkles!!!

Next up are 2 birthday cards that I made recently. I usually shy away from really bright/bold colours but I love how vibrant these turned out., especially the first one which won on the Colour Me Creative challenge which was to use Primary Colours.

Both cards have been made using my scraps from the same Basic Grey paper pack and red cardstock. The sentiment on the first card is from Lili of the Valley and the sentiment on the second card is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
