Cardz 4 Galz Mythical or Fantasy Challenge # 72 Game of Thrones card! [05.24.2018]

Hi! Today's card is for the Cardz 4 Galz: Mythical or Fantasy Challenge #72. I just had to make a card that fit both mythical and fantasy ... so I focused on Game of Thrones! One of my favorite television shows. I just had to make a card with an homage to this epic, sweeping mythical fantasy show (and books!). Here is the card.

Supply List:
Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After stamp set and matching dies
Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest stamp set and matching dies
Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna stamp set and matching dies
Lawn Fawn Critters in the Arctic stamp set
Lawn Fawn Bannerific stamp set and matching dies
Lawn Fawn Harold's ABCs stamp set
Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops stamp set
Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders dies
Karen Burniston Castle Pop-up die
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder [EP280]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Dimensional Glue
Sparkle N Sprinkle Cloud Nine glitter [GM2000]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Ocean embossing powder
Sparkle N Sprinkle Robins Egg embossing powder [EP468]
Versamark ink [VM-001]
Anti Static Bag [99512]
Versafine Onyx Black ink [VF-82]
Memento Tuxedo Black ink [ME-900]
Memento Bahama Blue ink [MD-100-004]
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707e]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]
Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste [953N]
Copic markers
Tim Holtz distress inks
embossing folder
white gel pen



I started out by die cutting the Karen Burniston Castle Pop-Up die, using my Tonic Tangerine. I cut out all the parts of the castle from multiple papers and pieced it together following the directions. It can be sized for a standard A2 sized card, but I wanted a lot of space to add in more stuff, so I centered the castle in the middle of a full sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock that I had trimmed to 8 x 10-1/2. I also stamped out the Stark "wolf" using one of Lawn Fawn's foxes from the Critters in the Forest stamp set. I also stamped out the Lawn Fawn Bannerific banner and wrote "winter is coming" with Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs stamp set. I also created some ice bergs from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Arctic. I stamped them out with Blue Bahama Memento ink, then overstamped with Versamark ink and then sprinkled on Ocean and Robins Egg embossing powders from Sparkle N Sprinkle, and heat set them. Then, I fussy cut them out.

For King's Landing, I stamped out the castle from Lawn Fawn's Critters Ever After and fussy cut it. I also stamped out the Lion from Lawn Fawn's Critters on the Savanna. I also die cut some blue cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Puffy Cloud Borders die. This represents the water and ocean at King's Landing. After stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored them with Copic markers, and then placed them back in my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and stamped them again with Versafine Black Onyx ink and then sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear embossing powder and heat set it. This makes a nice solid black line that is embossed, after the coloring!

For the dragon to represent House Targaryen, I stamped out Lawn Fawn's Critters Ever After dragon, and colored him with copic markers, then reinserted him into the Stamp Platform and overstamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink and sprinkled on more Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. I also added some highlights with a white gel pen. I fussy cut out the dragon. I also created The Wall using blue cardstock. I dry embossed it with a textured embossing folder and then swiped some distress ink over the top and along the edges to give it some depth. Then, I squeezed on some Sparkle N Sprinkle Dimensional Glue along the wall, and covered the glue with Cloud Nine glitter. This gave the wall a lot of sparkle! I scored the bottom edge of the wall and folded it and adhered it to the card so that when the card is folded shut, the wall is flat inside the card.

Here is another photo of the full card. See how The Wall stands up! Woot woot! And, Winterfell is in the center of the card. I also laid down a stencil, on the blue water part, and stenciled in Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste to give the water a bit more flair. Before adhering everything down, I also stamped Lawn Fawn's "bricks" from their Interlocking Backdrops stamp set in gold ink for King's Landing. I also stamped out some honey comb texture using another stamp from Lawn Fawn's Interlocking Backdrops stamp set along the middle of the card to change up the terrain from warm and tropical King's Landing to Winterfell, which is dark and cold since winter is coming!

This was a really fun card to make! I, along with a billion other people, are counting down the days until the final season arrives. 11 more months ... but who is counting! hahaha. I hope this card gave you a little bit of a breather as we continue to wait!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Aster Garden tag [05.21.2018]

Here is one of my Sparkle N Sprinkle May reveal stamp projects. I made a tag, using some digi stamps. I started out with the newly released Aster Garden digi stamp set, and used the sentiment, which reads: "Beautiful minds inspire others" which I think is a wonderful sentiment. I also used some of the digi papers from the Floral Surprise Papers set, which was released a few months ago. It is really fun to use different stamp sets together - and these two worked out so well together. Let's check out the tag I made using these two digi sets, and a tag base. Here it is!

Supply List:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Aster Garden digi stamp [DIGI893BC]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Floral Surprise Papers digi paper set [DIGI4006FS]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Super Thick White embossing powder [EP355]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Pink Fizz glitter [GM2050]
Sparkle N Sprinkle 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape [SAT11]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Glitter Brush [SG1400]
Tonic Swirling Frame Layering Die Set [1462e]
Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes [850N]
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive [200N]
Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops [651N]
Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen [888N]
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707e]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]


I sized and printed the sentiment and layered it over a pink paper background from the Floral Surprise Papers digi set. I printed out the sentiment and background, and then die cut it using my Tonic Tangerine machine, and a Tonic Swirling Frame Layering Die Set die. I layered it over a piece of 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape, trimmed it with my scissors in the shape of the die cut sentiment label, then burnished in some Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes. I also printed out another digi paper from the Floral Surprise Papers set, and sized it to fit the size of the tag. That background paper is a bit of a newsprint with flowers and a humming bird, which you can see further below. I painted the tag with some white gesso, and let it dry. Then, I sized the background digi paper and layered it over the tag and adhered it down with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I sprinkled on some Super Thick White embossing powder. Because this embossing powder is really chunky and it is best to heat from below - which wouldn't have worked out well because my tag was so thick (chipboard), I decided to heat up my oven to about 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and I placed my tag onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment paper. I slid this into the oven for a few minutes, and the embossing powder melted perfectly! I removed it from the oven, let it cool, and then I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment panel onto the tag. After this step, I felt like I had too much space between the sentiment and the edge of the tag. I pulled out some 3D dimensional glue dots, and adhered them to the tag. I sprinkled on Pink Fizz glitter and burnished it into these glue dots. This turned out really cool! Check out those globules of pink glitter! Awesome!

I also wanted more dimension. I pulled out some light pink flowers from my stash, brushed on some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, and then sprinkled on more Pink Fizz glitter to tie all the colors together. I adhered the pink flowers around the sentiment panel.

And, here are the gorgeous flowers and that sweet hummingbird on the digi Floral Surprise Papers. I did paint over the paper with a light layer of gesso, which toned down the paper a bit. I also brushed on some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen over the hummingbird and flowers. This photo captures some of the sparkle, but it is much more sparkly in real life!

And, here once again, is the full tag. Once I was done decorating it, I pulled out some white and pink ribbons from my stash and tied them onto the tag.

Be sure to leave a comment both here on my personal blog and then head over to the SNS post and leave a comment there as well for your chance to win a $20 gift card to SNS! One lucky winner will be chosen from one of the Designers' posts on the last day of each month. A comment must be left on both the SNS Blog and the Designer's post in order to qualify. The winner will be announced on the 3rd of the following month, both on the SNS Blog and on the SNS Facebook page.

I really enjoyed using these two digi stamp sets, the Aster Garden which has gorgeous flowers and some amazing sentiments, and the Floral Surprise Papers set for the two backgrounds. It is really fun to combine several sets together, like I did here, to really stretch your stash and create more!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Cardinal and Holly card [05.16.2018]

Hello! Today's card is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle May 2018 release. This cardinal stamp was so gorgeous, so I used it for my first reveal card for May. Let's check out this awesome stamp and card!

Supply List:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Cardinal and Holly stamp [00-895P5]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Glitter Brush [SG1400]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Golden Sparkle [EP106]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder [EP280]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Aztec Gold [G1006]
Sparkle N Sprinkle 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape [SAT15]
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707e]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]
Tonic Sunray Venus Layering Basics Die Set [1450e]
Tonic Autumnal Oak Die Set [1431e]
Anti Static Bag [99512]
Versafine Onyx Black ink [VF-82]
Versamark ink [VM-001]

I really loved this sentiment and had to use it with my card. This stamp set has a couple sentiments, but this one was my favorite! I stamped it with my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, using a gold sparkle pigment ink from my stash. I stamped the sentiment, then sprinkled on Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set it. Then, I die cut out the cardstock using my Tonic Tangerine and a Tonic Sunray Venus Layering Basics Die Set die. I also used the same die and traced around the outside edge onto black cardstock and fussy cut it out to make a mat for the die cut sentiment.


I also decorated my card panel. I started out by laying down a strip of 2-1/2" Tear-ific Tape. I die cut some leaves from the Tonic Autumnal Oak Die Set from sparkly green cardstock. I pressed the leaves into the Tear-ific Tape, and then pressed the stamped and colored Cardinal die cut panel as well (more about that below!). Then, I burnished in some Aztec Gold glitter to all the rest of the exposed Tear-ific Tape. This Aztec Gold glitter is super sparkly and so beautiful. It was perfect!

And here is my Cardinal! I stamped out the Cardinal and Holly stamp with Versamark Ink, again using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped the cardinal and then sprinkled on Golden Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. I colored the bird with brush markers, then die cut the image with Tonic Tangerine and Tonic Sunray Venue Layering Basics Die Set. I also used the die to use to trace around it and fussy cut out a mat for the bird panel. I also squeezed on some Nuvo Winter Cranberry Glitter Accents to the inside of the berries. I also squeezed some Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops into the upper corner of the card base as well.

Be sure to leave a comment both here on my personal blog and also on the SNS blog post too, for your chance to win a $20 gift card to SNS! One lucky winner will be chosen from one of the Designers' posts on the last day of each month. A comment must be left on both the SNS Blog and the Designer's post in order to qualify. The winner will be announced on the 3rd of the following month, both on the SNS Blog and on the SNS Facebook page.

This cardinal is gorgeous, and I love the holly and berries as part of the stamp. The sentiments are really fun, and very versatile. I know you will love it!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Cardz 4 Galz Challenge # 71 All Dressed Up

Hi! Today's card is for Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #71: All Dressed Up! And, what isn't cuter than a sweet little girl dressed up as a flower!?! Here is the card I made, using Lawn Fawn products.

Supply List:
Lawn Fawn Easter Party stamp set and dies
Lawn Fawn Bannerific stamp set and dies
Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp set and dies
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die
Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies
Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Spring Petite paper pack
Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite paper pack
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder [EP280]
Memento Tuxedo Black ink [ME-900]
Anti Static Bag [99512]
Versafine Onyx Black ink [VF-82]
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707e]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]
Glossy Accents
White gel pen
Copics
Distress Ink & ink blenders


I started out by stamping the little gal dressed as a flower, from the Lawn Fawn Easter Party stamp set, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (copic friendly) with my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I also stamped out a lot of the sweet little flowers. I pulled everything out of my Stamp Platform, colored them with Copic markers, then put everything back inside the Stamp Platform, and stamped the images again with Versafine Onyx Black ink (a sticky ink that holds embossing powder). I sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Embossing powder and heat set everything. I also stamped out the "happy" and the banner and sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Happy Happy Happy and Bannerific stamp sets. I stamped with Versafine Black Onyx again and sprinkled on more Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Embossing powder. I heat set these, and then die cut everything. I also die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Spring paper with the Quilted Backdrop, layered it over a piece of white cardstock, then cut out a circle in the center with a circle die from my stash.

I also die cut a scalloped circle and cut out the center using the same circle die to make a frame to go around the hole. Then, I cut a circle from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes Petite paper pack, with a larger circle die. Then, I die cut some green cardstock with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die, and blended some distress ink to the edges of the hillside. I layered the hillside over the base of the circle, then adhered the watercolor (background) circle behind the panel. I adhered the flowers and the little girl with adhesive and foam dimensional adhesive. I popped up the sentiment too, and here is what I ended up with!

I made two little flower girls all dressed up, one for my Mom and one for my husband's Mom. I used all the same colors but changed things up a little bit between the two cards so they weren't exactly identical. Here are both cards.

I am also entering these cards into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 28: Sketch. I don't often use sketches when creating cards, so this was a fun challenge and these little dressed up flower girls in their sweet costumes seemed the like the perfect match!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Tulip Square Window Acetate Card [04.30.2018]

What a wonderful spring day! Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed the Tulip Squares stamp set in April, and here is the card I made using this new stamp. I also used Embossable Acetate and made a window see-through panel for the front of the card.

Supply List:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Tulip Square stamp set [00-894P5]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Embossable Acetate [99602]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Butterscotch glitter [GM2051]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Burgundy Glitz glitter [G1047]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Black Magic embossing powder [EP255]

Versamark ink [VM-001]
Harvest Gold High Gloss Mirror Cardstock [9457e]
Honey Gold Satin Effect Mirror Cardstock [9487E]
Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops [650N]


I started by stamping out the Tulip Squares stamp image, with Jet Black Stazon ink, onto Clear Embossable Acetate, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I removed the Acetate from my Stamp Platform, turned it over, and colored the tulip, leaves, and lady bugs with Copic markers. Then, still on the back of the acetate, I rolled on some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen onto the backside of the tulip, and sprinkled on Butterscotch glitter. I let that dry, then rolled on more glue onto the lady bugs and sprinkled on Burgundy Glitz glitter. The flower and lady bugs sparkled a lot! I die cut out a square from the front of my cardstock base, using Tonic's Scalloped Squares Layering Basic Die Set and my Tonic Tangerine machine. I also die cut out a scalloped frame and adhered the frame over the acetate and to the card base.

I stamped out the ladybug stamp onto white cardstock, and stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx ink, again using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I sprinkled on Black Magic embossing powder and heat set it. I fussy cut the ladybug out, then rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen onto the ladybug wings and sprinkled on more Burgundy Glitz glitter. Once it all dried, I squeezed on some Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops for the ladybug dots. I stamped out the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink and sprinkled on more Black Magic embossing powder. I heat set it, and then die cut out the sentiment with one of Tonic's Scalloped Squares Layering Basic Die Set. I also cut 1/4" and 1/8" strips of Tonic's Honey Gold Satin Effect and Harvest Gold High Gloss Mirror Card Stock, rolled some glue onto the back of them, and layered them across the front of the card. I mounted the sentiment block onto some foam tape, and layering it over the cardstock strips. 

Here is a close up of the tulip and lady bug glitter (which is on the backside of the acetate).

And, another look at the full card, to see how it all came together. This was a really fun card to make!

I really like the look of this see-through window card and I love how the glitter on the back side of the image really sparkles. What fun! Gonna definitely be doing this again.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Cardz 4 Galz #70 April Showers Shadowbox Card [04.26.2018]

Hi! Today's card is for the Cardz 4 Galz #70 April Showers challenge. So, when I think April Showers, I of course think of Lawn Fawn's sweet little ducks from the Rub a Dub Dub stamp set, and some umbrellas and rain drops from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby stamp set. This is what I created to show April showers, which bring spring flowers! Woo hoo!

Supply List:
Lawn Fawn Rub a Dub Dub stamp set
Lawn Fawn Rub a Dub Dub dies
Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die
Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die
Lawn Fawn Hello Baby stamp set
Lawn Fawn Hello Baby dies
Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders dies
Sparkle N Sprinkle Clear Detail embossing powder [EP280]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Silver Lightning embossing powder [EP262]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Embossable Acetate [99602]
Memento Tuxedo Black ink [ME-900]
Versamark ink [VM-001]
Anti Static Bag [99512]
Versafine Onyx Black ink [VF-82]
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform [1707e]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]
Copic markers


I stamped out the duckies and sail boat from Lawn Fawn's Rub a Dub Dub stamp set, and the clouds and umbrellas from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby stamp set, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I stamped them out with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, a Copic friendly ink. I colored the images, then reinserted the stamped cardstock back into my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, inked up the images (which I had not moved) with Versafine Black Onyx ink, and stamped the images again. Then, I sprinkled on Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Detail embossing powder and heat set them. I die cut them out with their matching dies, and then also die cut out the Shadow Box die with my Tonic Tangerine machine! LOVE this machine!. I also die cut Lawn Fawn's Meadow Borders meadow grass and tulip dies. I added some Copic coloring to the tulips, and blended some distress ink onto the grassy borders. I also die cut out the Shadow Box pieces with Lawn Fawn's Quilted Backdrop die and layered white paper inside the Shadow Box to allow the quilted die cutting to show up really well! Here is a side angle of the Shadow Box to show a bit of the dimension.

I also stamped some of the clouds and rain drops from Lawn Fawn's Hello Baby stamp set inside the Shadow Box. And, then I stamped the rain drops onto Sparkle N Sprinkle's Embossable Acetate, with Versamark Ink. I sprinkled on Silver Lightning embossing powder and heat set it. I trimmed the acetate into strips, and adhered the rain drops all around inside the card. Here is another shot of the dimension and it also shows the layers better and all the fun rain drops inside the card!

I am also going to enter this card into Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #27: 3-D cards. This was a fun card to make, and I love how dimensional and fun these Shadow Box cards are. I look forward to what you create and post in the Cardz 4 Galz #70 April Showers challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Baubles Pink See Through Card [04.23.2018]

Today's card is another Sparkle N Sprinkle April new release! This card is made using the Christmas Baubles stamp set. I highlighted just one of the baubles in my card. Let's check it out!

Supply List:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas Baubles stamp set [00-891P6]
 Sparkle N Sprinkle Gold Coast embossing powder [EP364]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Princess Rose embossing powder [EP387]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Shamrock glitter [GM2041]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Gypsy Red glitter [GM2005]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Pink Fizz glitter [GM2050]
Sparkle N Sprinkle Glitter Brush [SG1400]
Versamark ink [VM-001]
Anti Static Bag [99512]
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive [200N]
Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen [206N]
Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen [888N]
Tonic Tangerine machine [138e]
Tonic Deco Diamond Patterned Panels Die Set [1331e]
Tonic Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set [1456e]
Tonic Mixed Edge Rectangle Layering Basics Die Set [1457e]
Tonic Pink Chiffon Mirror Card Satin Effect [9483e]
Tonic Easy Clean Craft Mat [1514e]


I treated cardstock with my Anti Static Bag, then stamped out the ornament, using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, and Versamark ink. I then sprinkled on some Gold Coast embossing powder and heat set it. I colored my image with Copic markers, and then rolled on some Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and sprinkled on Pink Fizz glitter onto the ornament. You can see in this photo below, how pretty the Pink Fizz glitter is!

I added more glitter to the ornament hanger. I rolled on more Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen and sprinkled on Shamrock glitter for the holly leaves, and Gypsy Red for the berries.

I stamped out the sentiment using the Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, and sprinkled on Gold Coast embossing powder and heat set it. Here is a close up of the sentiment. I also die cut out the ornament and sentiment using my Tonic Tangerine machine, and the Tonic Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set. 

I cut out four white cardstock ovals and four scalloped ovals from Tonic's Pink Chiffon Satin Effect Mirror Cardstock, using Tonic's Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set. I also cut out two white cardstock panels using Tonic's Deco Diamond Patterned Panels Die Set. Then, I die cut the panels into a rectangular shape with Tonic's Mixed Edge Rectangle Layering Basics Die Set. I scored one of the Deco rectangles about 1/4" from the top, folded it, added adhesive, and layered the front and back of the card together. I stamped the inside sentiment using Versamark ink and sprinkled on Princess Rose embossing powder and heat set it. After this step was done, I layered the white ovals over the pink ovals, and lined up the ovals on the front of the card, back of the card front, inside the card, and the back of the back of the card. This way, when the card is closed, all the ovals line up and you can't see all of them, since the card is see-through.

Here is another shot of the card and how fun it is, when it is opened.

Be sure to leave a comment both here on my personal blog post and then head over to the SNS blog and leave a comment there as well for your chance to win a $20 gift card to SNS! One lucky winner will be chosen from one of the Designers' posts on the last day of each month. A comment must be left on both the SNS Blog and the Designer's post in order to qualify. The winner will be announced on the 3rd of the following month, both on the SNS Blog and on the SNS Facebook page.

I hope you enjoyed this card. I love the non-traditional colors of the pink and gold for holiday season. I might have to make more cards like this!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
