Flowers and Swirls in black and gold

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I last posted but just seem to have been so busy lately.  Just a quick couple of cards tonight that I've made over the past few days.  The first being a birthday card for a friend's 65th.  Felt like doing something a little different using peel offs, glimmer mists and metal flakes.  I used an  8 x 8 white card, sprayed with bronze cosmic shimmer mist.  Using a stix 2 double sided sheet and a peel off, I covered one side with metal flakes.  I layered this onto gold and black card.  I layered swirl peel offs onto bronze card.  A piece of black ribbon, a ribbon bow,a few black gems, job done..

My second card is an A6 card for a new baby boy.  I ran a piece of blue card through my big shot using the cuttlebug spotty embossing folder and layered a kanban picture onto it.  Made a bow with blue ribbon, a couple of embellishments, a few gems and a teddy peel off in the corner.

Hopefully at the weekend I will post 2 more that I have in the pipeline.  I will also post my cute valentine I made for hubby.....bet you can't wait to see it....... thanks for stopping by and any newcomers who have stopped to look at my blog along the way you're all very welcome.  Dee xx
