Card Patterns Challenge :-)

I need to make a few Thank You cards,,, I know I should have made them before ,,, but didn't ,,, anyway I found this lovely sketch on the Card Patterns Challenge,,, which I think is perfcect for nice simple cards so I will be making several of these :-)

I have just received this gorgeous Curious Muzzy stamp as a gift from one of my blog buddies ,,, I won't mention her name just in case she doesn't want me to tell ya'll :-) Anyway ,,, I just had to use him eh ,, sooo cute and tiny ,,, perfect fit for a tag ! :-)
I cut the tag on my cricut ( still plugged in !!! :-)) and embossed all the edges using brilliance ink and sparkle embossing powder :-) The Thank You is a Hero Arts stamp which I stamped with black ink and then wrote over with black copics glitter pen,, so it is sparkly :-)
The DP Basic Grey and I also used a little blue coredinations that I embossed with a Thank You folder which was smothered in jade brilliance ink to give a 2 tone shimmery effect. The flowers are Prima rosebuds and I finished it off with ribbon and a few gems :-)

All That Scraps Challenge :-) Ria's Sketch

I made this card following Ria's fabulous sketch on the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge

I used my new Shy Kiki La Rue stamp,, isn't she cute :-) I coloured her with copics and added glitter pen to her buttons and a little lace stickles to her socks for sparkle. The oval was edged with pigment ink and embossed with sparkle EP :-)

The fancy flower under the oval was cut out on my cricut,,thanks Ria for making me plug it in !! :-)
The papers are from a Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses pad ,, I thought the check pattern went well with her skirt ! :-)
The fancy border was made using a Martha Stewart border punch and the ribbon was from my messy drawer :-) I added a few ivory pearls and loads of stickles on all the edges for sparkle :-) the sentiment is a Funky Fairy's punch em :-)

Here's a close up :-) and below is the fab sketch :-)
