Happy Monday!

Hello everyone, thought I'd share a couple cards this beautiful Monday Morning - First is a card I created for one of the April ippity challenges - the color challenge to be exact.  I used some scraps of 7 gypsies paper and stamps from the "Music of My Heart" set. (both the sentiment and the music notes background)   I finished it off with some ribbon, brads and distress ink:


Next is a card I made for the challenge over at Just Us Girls.    It's a technique challenge - emboss resist.  I used several stamps from the {ippity} collection,  distress inks for the background and a squirt of glimmer mist (which you can't really see in the pic, but I promise you it's there)  A bit of fiber, some silver leafing and a button finish it of. 



Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fantastic week!

Both beautiful cards. Just realised I have to make DH an anniversary card, and as he is a songwriter, the first one is perfect as inspiration. :)

LOVE them BOTH! Seriously, girl! Wonderful work ON both of these stunning creations! But I do have to say that I let out a VERY excited *gasp* when it came to card #2. Your use of the emboss resist technique is OUTSTANDING! Such a perfect showcase for the stamp, mood, etc. I love it! THANKS, sooooo much, for sharing your talent with Just Us Girls!

Wow, do you know how long I have had music of my heart and it remains un-inked. So sad. Your cards are just beautiful. I received the new ippity guidelines and decided to drop. So I will need a ippity chick to buy from if you are staying on. Hugs to you.
