1st Blog Birthday

Good Morning all, gosh can you believe today my blog is 1 year old, and what a year.  Thank you to all my regular followers and those that stop by now and then.

Today i am sharing a batch of cards that came together from backgrounds made with brusho/pixie powder mix left over from my Christmas cards and the white inverted scallop squares which were the 'left over' from die cut frames i used. 



Lemon & Blue combo, Violet flower die
5x5 cardbase.  I die cut the tim holtz mixed media die into my white top panel, this i mounted over a panel of lemon & blue brusho cardstock.  I cut my violets from the same card, i added a little blue glue to the flower centres.  Sentiment can easily be changed to any occasion. 


5x5" White base card.  Square mat cut from my backing paper.  I then die cut the collage corner die into the topper, stamped sentiment in grey and mounted with 3D foam.  Die cut butterflies and glitter glue to finish.

This first one is a lilac/green combo



Orange & Lilac combo.  The photos don't really do the colours justice as the pixie powders really do sparkle when the light hits them.



Lilac & Peach, Tim holtz mixed media corner die






Orange & Blue combo


Green & Orange,




And finally a mix up of orange, green & Lilac.  I gently shaped the butterfly wings and only add glue down the middle so that the wings are lifted up off the card.  



Items Used:
Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies
Poppystamps Ring Collage die 1760
Sizzix Butterfly die set
Memory box viola die
Double stitched square die set
Justrite sentiment stamps
Brusho's & Pixie powders

So thank you for stopping by once again and all your support, i look forward to continuing my blogland discovery with you all.  Emma
