CAS Lawn Fawn Engagement card with sequins.

As soon as I saw Pinspired Challenge #9, I wanted to use my pink sequins laid out in rows. Just as we get a peek through the curtains, at the pink delights inside, I've cut a heart aperture to frame my glittery treasure. I wanted to keep the rest of the card nice and simple so the sequins shine.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you again soon!

Baby Laurence

A CAS card to welcome baby Laurence to the family. He's a much sought after cousin by my lot, they've been asking for a cousin since their uncle's wedding! Plenty of blue for the new little boy & some of my favourite Lawn Fawn stamps. I've white embossed Quinn's ABCs and filled them with Stickles so they stand out on the DP. Shaded Lilac Distress Ink on the edges & my first go of a gradient fill with some red Promarkers for a little pop of colour.

WMS May Blog Party–Teacher Appreciation

It's teacher appreciation time for WMS Blog Party. I didn't quite have the sentiment I wanted, but with a little masking this was what I got! Don't look too close, though :) I need more masking practice. 
This is for a special teacher as her class moves on after two years. I've kept it very simple, with embossing as the only embellishment.

Hope you enjoyed my teacher appreciation card & take a look at the other cards in the Blog Party.
