Let's "Party"

Hello everyone!

I created 2 cards for the current challenge at CASology. This is a 2 week challenge, and the Cue Card is ‘Party’, so on my first card, I went with the theme for a birthday party. 

On this first card, I die cut the Landscape Trio die with vellum to create clouds. I added mini stars and balloons, a silver embossed sentiment, then the balloon holder with foiled cardstock to give it some flair.

My next card is for a New Year’s Eve celebration, and for this one, I die cut the wine glass and added faux bubbles to create more like a ‘champagne’ effect with embossing paste colored pink. I also stamped some confetti along the bottom of the card.

Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and that hopefully you're enjoying some time off from work!

Wow--two fabulous party cards. I love all the silver and vellum on that first card--I think that you have just sold me on those landscape trio dies as well. And, your wine glass, streamers and polka dots are so festive on your second card.
