Easter Weekend

We had a quiet weekend what with Steven being full of a cold.... so I was busy crafting.  Have made a couple of cards, as I have lots of Birthdays coming up and I need to be prepared.

The first card I made was a Dandelion Card, - have to say that this is not my original idea - this came from Michelle at our craft class on Friday, where we made our own papers and generally got very messy.

Its hard to see from the picture but after embossing the dandelion (from Inkylicious) I did use some stickles to accentuate the dandelion.  I added some purple gems, 2 tone coloured my ribbon (green and purple not sure thats clear on my piccie) and added a lovely lime green heart button - this is from my stash on a recent visit to Thailand.

Second card is from Lili of the Valley, - I do like this stamp.  Used my promarker blender on this card quite a bit, still have a lot to learn but starting to like the outcome. 

I dry embossed my card, and just added some raindrop gems to highlight some of the background, Happy Birthday Stamp from Stampin Up and away you go.

Have a good Bank Holiday everyone!!
