ATS Challenge Reminder

Hi all! It's hump day Wednesday... and I'm popping in to remind you to join us at ATS Challenge blog this week! A fun photo for inspiration and an awesome prize for one lucky winner!
Sweet November's Fairwee Jilly has a birthday candle for someone's special day! Followed a sketch from Mojo Monday, and first time I've attempted to make a round card. It wasn't centered quite right when it's standing up, so out came the little holder for picture time! lol! Papers are from S.E.I. Fair Day, and solid color cardstock from DCWV.  A few Spellbinders round diecuts, and an altered Recollection tag punch. And of course, some sparkles and shiny gems!

Hope you all have a fantastic week! Thanks for stopping by ;D

Thinking of You...

Happy Memorial Day! am just popping in really quick to bring you Lollipop Craft's new challenge for the week, in observance of today... With Deepest Sympathy.

Very simple layout, but finally got to try embossing powder on the stamped image. It was pretty fun to watch the powder turn so shiny. lol! Then I tried to add some color with ink pads, but it didn't show well. So out came the copics... luckily it turned out the way it did, and didn't have to start over. Image is from Penny Black, and sentiment from AmyR Sentiment Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by...
Enjoy the rest of the day!

For Mama...

Happy Monday everyone! Ready for a new challenge from Lollipop Crafts? Well this week, it's MAMA MIA!! Just create card/project for Mother's Day! Visit the LC blog for more details, and our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs!

For my card today, I have Mei Li from Sister Stamps. I won her awhile back (from Jenny) and was inspired by my fellow DT Leanne's post here, so finally I inked her up!
Mei Li's pretty outfit is lined with golden sparkles using Stickles. Kept the layout fairly simple against the pretty washi paper. Added a nice green border on the bottom and the edges inked with a golden orange MS ink pad. The sentiment is from Penny Black, which could be for any occasion.
