HELLO


June
I fell in love with the Ellen Hutson Bold Blossom Stand-Alone dies, especially after my friend, Cat, sent me some die cuts to play with.   Decided it was OK to break my "no spending" rule--just once--LOL!  I'd love to get more of her products & the Pin-Sights Challenge has a wonderful inspiration board.  I love pastels & I love gold, so I used both for my card. Back in 2012 Nicole Heady showed how to make this kind of background with Copics. 
I thought it'd make a perfect background for these beautiful die cuts. Hadn't used my JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder in ages & it was just what I wanted--gorgeous sparkle & shine.  The Teresa Collins alphabet stickers are my all-time favorites, so used them again here.  I'm also entering at SSS Monday as these colors do make me think summer. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
Edited: Finished the card late at night & forgot I meant to add gold embellishments, so did today & replaced the picture.

  2. Hi Greta, just wanted to pop in and thank you for your comment about my card appearing on the Neat and Tangled blog. It was such a shock to scroll thru and find my card at the bottom, nearly fell off my chair! Its one of my favourite cards too, just wish I could afford to buy more of their stamps! And I have to say, this card of yours is a pastel wonder! Those colours are gorgeous and blended perfectly. I love all of the Ellen Hutson products but don't have any so far. Love your die cuts and the shimmer is brilliant. Good luck with the challenge, will keep my fingers crossed for you!!!
