A Special Occasion & A 'Rescued' Card

2 more cards to show today.

The first was made for my parents ruby wedding anniversary - 40 years married, I am amazed at the years that have flown by, time goes way too quickly these days.

Pink petticoat Sentiments & Big bloomers papers & monograms for this one, some sizzlits diecut hearts, flatback crystals & craftwork cards cardstock (stardust red, I think)

The second card is what I name as a 'rescued' card, that is one that has been saved from the waste paper bin. First I trimmed my image incorrectly, all wonky, so it was trimmed down even more & the scalloped edge was added, then the dreaded ink smudge happened so I made a deliberate 'grunge' smudged edge, I wasn't keen at first, but it's growing on me.

Pink petticoat (again :) 'Christmas doodleicious' and a silver gel pen, silver cord and watercolour pencils with a teeny bit of 3D glitter glue & 3D clear gloss.

Mono Mania

I had a 'flurry' of creative activity the other day when I dug out a kit I had purchased from Craftwork Cards.
Most were enhanced again with Pink Petticoat images/papers/sentiments.
Hero arts fanciful filaments stamps were used on a couple too

I quite often get stuck for inspiration so I was quite impressed with myself when I managed 5 cards in a monochromatic theme.

My First Post.

I have recently discovered pink petticoat - love their products :)
This card was fairly quick & easy to make.
As well as products from pink petticoat, I used a big, black brad from a dovecraft embellishment pack & a couple of brads from Queen & Co. Ooooh! I almost forgot I used a glue pen & some crystal glitter by stampendous just to give the top bloom a little 'lift'
