Two to Share

I have two creations to share that I feel fit a couple of great challenges. My first is the Sir Stampalot Challenge for August, called "Bring On The Bling". I created this round card for a sketch challenge at StampTV this week and didn't want to waste all this sparkly beauty. They get some amazing submissions over there.

My base is Ivory Pure Luxury card stock with DP form K&Co. I used two stamp sets from Gina K. Designs to decorate my small circle and do my inside sentiment. I added ivory Prima's with bling centers and pearl accents. The inside says "It's All Good". The shape of the card was cut with a Spellbinders Peony die, and then sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

My second card is for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #6, to use ribbon and make it Aloha theme. I am a member of their monthly club and I just love the selections of ribbon we receive, so I thought it was only right to support their challenges. For Aloha, I used Theresa Momber's set called Aloha, from Gina K. Designs. The papers used are from MAMBI. It is colored in Copic Markers and sponged in Baja Breeze form SU! Bubble gum pink grosgrain was added in two strips and a button embellishment added.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh my gosh, the first card just blew me away with the gorgeous bling and unique shape of the card! I love the colors and how you worked the bling in with the primas! The 2nd is a tropical beauty too, and just puts me into an island mode. I think I hear echoes of Don Ho somewhere in my head :D
