I cased Elly

I saw this gorgeous card on Elly's site.  Have you checked out her blog? It's fabulous!!  I did mine a little differently since I don't have exactly the same dies but it is close and it was so much fun to make.  I started out with a scalloped circle card shape, used one of the beautiful doilies and cut it in half and used a smaller scalloped circle with the gorgeous Sophia's heart die over it. I added a smaller doily die in the center and then started added the mini fanciful flourish,
 flourish leaf strip leaves, large, medium and miniature roses with the leaf from Judy's bloom under them and the gorgeous medium exotic butterfly.  I added some pink gems to the flowers and butterfly and they are colored using Victorian velvet distress ink.  All dies are from Cheery Lynn, have you seen the newest ones, be sure to check out them out!!!

Cheery Lynn white on white

The challenge on the Cheery Lynn Blog is to use white on white.  Have you checked out the new dies?  This card was made using a cuttlebug background, then I used the gorgeous new Fiona's magic mirror frame and edged it in gold.  The beautiful lacey O Tannenbaum tree is also edged in gold.  The gold leaf is from Judy's bloom and the flowers are the large and medium roses.  I added some bling to the tree with strips of red and gold beads.  Be sure to check out the new dies from Cheery Lynn and watch the videos.

Cheery Lynn Gold!!

This pretty gold and black card is for the Gold/Silver challenge over at Cheery Lynn.     I started with a 6x6 black card, then cut a gold mirror layer and then black again. I used some pretty soft gold and cream paper from my stash for the Swedish Spring Oval. 
I trimmed that with an 18k gold pen and then added the beautiful gold and mother of pearl peel off image.  The edges of the card are also peel offs with holographic in the centers.   The pretty  Victorian Romance Flourish was added on the corner with gold mirror card and then I made a flower with black and gold from the medium rose and miniature rose strips.
