Here is my card:



I was inspired by the black and silver in the photo. The wreath was die cut in pretty silver glitter paper. The stars in white glitter paper. The wreath was then attached to a panel of black and white striped vellum paper. I attached all of this to a black card base. And finally, I added lots of sparkly sequins!

The Card Concept Challenge #51



Hello everybody!!!
Welcome to a NEW 
challenge here at
THE CARD CONCEPT!

Just look at this week's gorgeous inspiration photo!


I was inspired by those pretty pink eggs against the neutral background.



I made my Easter basket with circle dies and the Tim Holtz  Chevron die! Pretty cool, huh???
The gorgeous Easter eggs are from the SugarPea Designs Egg-A-Licious stamps. They are heat embossed with 2 different pink embossing powders!




I was really happy with the way this turned out!
I hope you are too, and will be inspired to play with this at The Card Concept!!!

Paper Sweeties March 2016 Release Party


Happy times!!!
Today is Paper Sweeties March 2016 Release Party!





I stamped the images with Black Memento Ink . I shaded the coffee cups with some gray Copic Markers.  And then I paper pieced the other parts of the cups. I know coffee to-go cups are usually shades of brown...but I wanted to be different! Ha!




I know you are going to LOVE these new March Paper Sweeties stamps and Sweet Cuts as much as I do! They are NOW  all available at the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!

Please visit my PAPER SWEETIE TEAMIES
