Black and white christmas card

 Hi there thanks for visiting
A Christmas card that is a bit unusual but I quite liked making it.

I have used again a very old stamp, one of the first I ever bought I think just stamped and embossed it, used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and matted on to black, the corners and the circles are cut from a nelli snellen die set, not over sure what I had to do with the edges the die does not cut all the way round so figured I needed to fold it up some how not sure if I got it right. Paper pleated some black card stock to make the rosette and added sentiment, bit of black ribbon and gems from stash also added crystal glitter but does not show up that much

fantasy birthday

Birthday card for a 3 year old
hi there thanks for visiting again today
made another version of the birthday card a couple of posts earlier,took the previous one in to work and was asked to make another, tried to make it similar but different if you get my gist.
Used the same cc girl stamps but added a lotv stamp into the mix, coloured with promarkers sprinkled glitter quite generously (last week think I must have swallowed some not pleasant) found the mirrored swirls and leaves in my craft stash think it came in a goodie bag from craft show.
thats it though these stamps are going to hide in the back of the cupboard for a while took me ages thanks for looking angxxxx
