Sunday means of course, a new challenge over at the OSAAT Challenge Blog, and the theme this week is to celebrate in style, meaning dig out the glitz, glitter, bling or whatever else you think you might need to give it the old 'razzle dazzle'! We have another great sponsor this week.........
..........Digi's With Attitude are offering a $10 voucher to one lucky winner but you know you've got to be in it to win it!
I actually have 2 cards to show you today, the first, using some very pretty digi papers from Panda Bear Designs.............
So as you can see, the front of the card is acetate which I've used many times but never actually like this, so there's a first for me. The Birthday cake was made using a paper piecing pattern I found online at Scrapbooks etc. I did emboss the frosting using a Cuttlebug folder, and ran the cake case through my paper crimper. There's glitter on the cake and candle flame, and of course, some bling which I dug from my stash. The ribbon and punch I used are from Martha Stewart.
Think that's all for that one, so let's move on to contestant number 2............
For this card, I used an image from Kelley Kids. Both this and the Panda Bear papers are included in a mega freebie pack you could get from the Stitchy Bear Stamps Store with any $10 purchase. I coloured again with Copic's and added glitter here and there, and I believe DP's are from Imaginisce. I also 'blinged' the 'Nestie' die cut and embossed using another Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is printed from my PC.
I now have to show you the inside which I'm pretty proud of. Full credit goes to Sharon over at The Pixie Cottage, who did a great tutorial for this a couple of weeks ago........you can check it out here. When I saw it, I knew I'd be trying it out at some point, so here it is.........
.......does that look cool or what.........and believe me, it was fairly simple.....honest! I coloured the tree with Copic's and again, added more bling.
Well, that's all for now folks........don't forget to head on over to the OSAAT blog to check out the rest of the lovely DT creations. I'll be back later with challenge hopefuls!
Enjoy the rest of your day.
