Happy Birthday

Hello and welcome!

I had a problem with taking
photos of this card. I just couldn't
catch the right colour but finally
there they are. I actually like how
this card turned out, especially
when reds aren't in my 'colour
comfort zone'. Maybe now I will
start to use them more.

Now a bit about the supplies 
I used.
Image is Wee florist stamp
from Whimsy stamps. Coloured
with promarkers and inked
backround with distress ink .
Of course I couldn't resist to
add some glitter on her flowers.
Papers are First edition Rose 
garden. I have this paper pad
for soo long but never used
before. Ribbon is from Santoro
Gorjuss collection. For the
centre of a bow I used a button
that was a spare one, came
with a shirt I recently bought.
Sentiment is from Lili of the valley and there's a bit of lace from my stash.
I used sketch from Papertake weekly challenge :

Another day, another card :) This time I have something for a friend.
How sad our life would be without to thank them for being there
for me I made this card. 
For the image I choose fun flowers digi stamp from Bugaboo stamps and
coloured it with promarkers. I even added a little of glitter glue for
butterflies wings. Frames are cut with spellbinders dies, I just cut two of them
and cut out centre of the smaller one. Paper is from my stash, it's very old
and i have no idea where and when I got it. Orange card is embossed
with dotty embossing folder.
Butterflies and ribbon also from my stash, sentiment is from HERE

Fancy invitation

My todays creation is an party invitation. The image is Draculara from Monster High, 
my daughters favourite. There is no digi stamp of Monster High girls so I used
printable coloring pages for kids :) I coloured her with promarkers, cut out and
attached with foam pads. Since she has an umbrella I thought I would be cool if the
invitation was in shape of umbrella too. I used black pearlescent paper, pink glitter
paper and a paper straw for a handle.  Sentiment is heat embossed with pink
embossing powder. Border made with Martha Stewart punch.
