Split Coast challenge 287

This was made for today sketch on SCS, I used some Gossamer memory box DP, Crafty Secrets image and some ribbon and glittered chipboard to accent. I tried to make a Collar for my bow and it worked great until I tied it off and cut the strings and then it all came undone after I had it glued on. I had to fudge things a little to keep in place.

Anniversary cards

I needed a cople of anniversary cards last night so when my stamping group was here I used Bonnie's blog as my inspiration. She has a tutorial on her blog and I didn't get as fancy as hers but I like the way they came out. I used cuttlebug, Martha Stewart punch for the small heart and border and Nestabilities for the larger one. Peel off butterflies from K&C0.

Split coast TLC277 One layer wonder

Wow this challenge was a tough one, we were to use only the card front to stamp on, no extra layers of papers or anything. I did however have to jazz it up at least a little bit. I used the embossing board from The Glitter Girls for the oval and edges, gold peel offs and a M.S. bird punch, EK punch for the doodles. The bird cage is from Crafty Secrets. I guess it didn't come out too bad although I normally would want more layers and bling.
