Happy Birthday ATSM!

For a chance to win some Blog Candy, please be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST 

Hi everyone ~ A quick post tonight...I have two cards to share for a few different challenges. The first card is for Addicted to Stamps & More who are celebrating their 2nd birthday and 100th challenge!




The inspiration photo for the challenge is a rainbow of colors, so I stamped my heart-shaped balloons with that in mind, and added my sentiment. Huge CONGRATS to Kylie and the amazing Design Team at ATSM...you girls are the BEST!

                   -----------------------------------------------

My 2nd card is for the collaborative challenges at Case This Sketch and Fusion Card Challenge and the current challenge at Clearly Besotted Stamps  (Anything Goes).





So, for my card, I used the color inspiration from the Fusion Card Challenge (lots of gold), and the sketch from Case This Sketch. I added a touch of Delicata Gold ink to Pearlescent embossing paste for the stars, and colored white thread with a gold Copic Marker.

So, that’s it for me ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

Barb
