April Challenge Use Those Dies and/or Punches

Good afternoon, my card today is for entry in
Stamping Sensations April Challenge Use those Dies and/or Punches.

The base is scalloped white cardstock and the design papers are Parisian Dreams by Jenny Ellory. The edges have been inked with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet and old Paper.  I have used Spellbinders A2 curved matting basics and Labels Ten and a small amount of lace from my stash.  I have fussy cut roses from the design papers and added them to the card.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft Pretty Little Things stamp set and I used Memento Love letter ink.  To finish I added flat backed pearls and a diamante bling.
The inside of the card has coordinating paper and I used Spellbinders labels Nineteen on white cardstock for a greeting/message.

I hope you like my card and thank you for stopping by.

April Challenge 22 Chocolate Express

Good afternoon.
My project today is a card with the theme Chocolate.
I started off with white cardstock.  The Design Paper used is Kitschy Kitchen by Melissa Frances layered on fawn cardstock.  I then added a paper doily distressed with Tim Holtz Scattered Straw and lace from my stash.  The focal image is from Graphics Fairy.  I added pearl bead trim at the top and pearl spray down the sides.  Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added a small chocolate coloured pearl bling embellishment which originally came from a necklace.  The inside of the card is another vintage image from Graphics Fairy and I also added a small recipe tag from Kitschy Kitchen which can be removed by untying the ribbon on the front of the card.
I am entering my card in the Live and Love Crafts Challenge 22 - Chocolate challenge.
I hope you like my project and thank you for stopping by.

Tag and Dangle Charm Bling it up

Good afternoon
My project today is a tag with a dangle charm attached.
The tag is from Fernli Designs and I painted it white and then embossed white cardstock with a hexagon pattern and attached it to the tag.  I added ribbon and lace from my stash.  Down each side I attached pearl bead trim.  The flower at the bottom was handmade by me using lace and ribbon, the bling in the centre was a hair slide.  The lace bow on the left has an acrylic flower attached with an amber bead in the centre and a stick pin handmade by me.  Flowers used are from WOC.  The bead charm was handmade by me using a Tim Holtz Swivel Clasp and beads from my stash.  It is attached to the ribbon at the top and can be removed.
I am entering this tag in WOC Challenge 100 Bling it Up
I hope you like my project and thank you for stopping by.
