Two cards today, neither of which really makes me jump up & down, so I’ll be quick!  The first one is a birthday card for my niece, and it uses Laura’s sketch 55 from 2S4Y shown here:

2s4y sketch 55


I used some BG Lemonade papers with my SU Things I Love set; I am thinking some brighter papers would have been better!  Oh well, I blinged the images up with some rhinestones and added a little oomph on the inside:


The second card is for two SCS challenges, F4A19 and WT277, as well as Sharon’s Star Light, Star Bright challenge. F4A19 is to use a gold star on your project, and WT277 is to make a July 4th card without using red, white or blue; Sharon’s is to incorporate stars into your design.  I had an idea in my mind, which didn’t really translate to paper, but anyway, here it is:


and the inside:


This used MANY stamp sets, they will be listed at the end.  Eveything was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.   TFL!!!
