birthday wishes

It has been a rather dull day today, so I have been busy playing in my craftroom.
Stamplorations have a challenge to use magenta, and I saw a card recently similar to my one. Sorry I can't remember where!
I stamped the writing stamp byTH off the edge of the page and then overstamped with a lovely flower from Rubberdance. The message is stamped with Memento tuxedo black.
I am entering in the May challenge at Stamplorations, and also the Happy Birthday challenge at Allsorts  and the 2nd birthday challenge at AAA cards

Today's card is for the challenge at Paperbabe

I stamped the image on white card with Memento tuxedo black,  trimmed it, and layered onto a leftover piece of turquoise card that was on my desk. I tore across the bottom edge, added a flower from my stash, coloured only the butterfly, and glued in some matching beads to the centre of the flower.

I can also add this one at Pixies Crafty workshop

Thanks for looking, and have a great week

Caseing Shery

Here is my entry for the May challenge at Caseplorations.
I stamped the background with a variety of leaves, and then used a stamp from Darkroom Door for the message.

I have tried to follow Shery's style, so hope you like it

a little bit vintage

Today's card features this lovely bird stamp from Crafty Individuals. I stamped it on a piece of textured card, and coloured with copics. The circle is also cut from the same scrap of card. The background is DP which I added some coloured to with tattered rose di, (masking off the centre first) The edges are distressed, with a little lace tucked in here and there, and then (very) roughly stitched around. The whole thing was then attached to a white card. I don't know who the branch diecut is from, it was a leftover from a class I did
I would like to enter this at Crafty Individuals for a/g
Rubberdance for vintage brown, dusky blue, & faded rose
Allsorts for vintage
Pixies crafty workshop (I used snippets of lace and textured card)

Have a great week and happy crafting

I made this card for one of my grandsons who is a very keen snowboarder.
I found a suitable image on the internet, and printed it and the message, from my computer.
I made the background using some Stampin Up stamps and also polka dot one, which I have lost the packaging from. The panel is layered onto a white card base.

Today's card uses an embossing folder from my 'nbus' pile, and I must admit I rather like it. I embossed the piece of teal card using my cuttlebug, and then swiped across the butterflies with a versamark stamp pad, then added some EP (2 different ones) I tied a matching ribbon across the bottom,tucked in a tiny flower, and then added my larger butterfly, which I cut out from an old calender and recoloured to match the teal theme. I am entering at
