Opus Gluei challenge

The opus gluei challenge this week was girlie cards. well I just finished this one for my friend Elsie's birthday, so I am entering it in the Opus Gluei challenge. I was in a purple mood when I made this card. I used what is fast becoming one of my favorite embossing folders as the center is plain and you can do so much with it. I stamped and colored the fairy, then  cut it out with my nestabilities. I inked the edge, then died the ribbon with the same color, I added the little purple roses, which I've had in my stash for a very long time. looking at it now I should have thrown in a green leaf (maybe next time). thanks for checking it out.

SOS challenge #4

This weeks SOS challenge was pretty easy (Sort of Simple), you just had to use a product starting with S and/or have an Ocean or nautical theme and/or use items that start with S. So I decided to use my Stampin Up Owl stamp and punch. I've had it for a few months and never used it so here was my chance. then I used my Stickles to do the owls eyes. I had a ready embossed cards from dollarama so I used my sponge and stamp it us ink and sponged all over the flowers and leaves. I cut a branch from my cricut catridge Winter Wonderland and layered the leaves and cones. (I also layered the front part of the owl to give it some dimension). Then I used my glittery Sparkles to give it some glitz, then sponged the outer edge of the card.  I'm entering this in the SOS challenge for this week.

this weeks challenge on SOS is UFO's-UnFinished Objects. well I thought that was a great idea, so I went into my rolling tote (had to blow the dust off) cause I knew I had some items in there from one of the scrapaganza's I went to. the first thing I put my hand on was a make and take called Jacob's Ladder. this has sat in my tote for a very long time so now I decided to finish it, plus my sister is having a bday, so I made it into a card for her. I decorated both sides of the card.   I'm entering this in this weeks challenge at SOS http://shoppingourstash.blogspot.com/ I see one of my pix is a little blurry, sorry about that, but you get the drift.
