50th Anniversary

I finished this card moments ago. It is a 50th anniversary card for my husband's oldest brother. The celebration is in four hours! I made Becca Fecken's medallion from this card. I had to mess with the lighting to show the glitter cardstock I used from the DCWV La Creme stack. I also used five different Spellbinders dies and the Martha Stewart border punch, wedding arches.

I am off to get ready, it is a beautiful sunny day here in Oregon!

June is gone!

June has flown by and so has the days to make cards. It is harder when you work full time, have to work some evenings and have been in school for a week. I did manage to squeeze out a couple of cards. This is one and the other was for a card contest. I will publish it when the contest closes!
I bought some new paper at Stampin' Cat Studio. It is a fiberous and floppy paper and doesn't want to punch easily. I couldn't resist making flowers out of the flower paper. The end result was not what I was shooting for but I like it!
Supplies used:
Spellbinders Nested flowers
Cuttlebug Hippie Chick alphabet/small flower
Creative Expressions flower brad
Queen & Co. felt leaves
unknown dp beige and red
DCWV Orange cardstock
SU Chocolate Chip ink (used on the flowers)

When your husband says "I need a card tomorrow"!

This is what happened when my husband said "I need a card for tomorrow." Thanks honey. The card was for one of the other guys in the band he is in -- Diamondback. The picture looks fine before I upload it but gets mushy after that! The banner says "Rock and Roll" and the inside says "Happy Birthday! Hope it's a blast!" (My husband didn't understand the guitar was blasting through the wall.)

Supplies used:
Hampton Arts stamp Rock Star--1
Inkadinkadoo stamp Rock Star
