W&W and SSS

The current W&W Color Combo is gold & mint--so beautiful!  I decided to make a thank you card using Essentials: Tilda Cutaways, Mini Scenery: Into the Woods, Sentimental: Thanks & In a Word: Thanks Coordinating Cutaways.


I used Mint Julep cardstock & ink plus Delicata Golden Glitz.  Finished off with clear sequins.  This is also my thank you card for Di who has run The Snippets Playground for 7 years.  Darnell set up a secret blog hop for us to thank Di for all her work which includes buying & sending out prizes.  I'll probably never meet Di in person, but she's one of those people I connected with right away.  Now we have even more in common as Di recently became Mum to a totally adorable furball named Dudley.  This is for you, sweet Di!


Thought you might also like to see a card I posted on Flickr for SSS Challenge #115.  The theme is love, so I made a Valentine using SSS Mandala stencil with DI spun sugar & victorian velvet.


The sentiment from SSS Hello, Beautiful was silver embossed & I added silver splatters.  I'm also entering Inkspirational.

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
