Cute Card Thursday - Challenge # 170

Here I have my next attempt at a Cute Card Thursday challenge! I have also entered my first Top Tip Tuesday challenge!

The CCT theme was a sketch, and the TTT theme was "T". Here is the card I made:

The papers are The Girls Paperie Vintage Whimsy, I have distress-inked all edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper, and the "buttons" and sentiment are cut using Spellbinders Circles. The sentiment is Darkroom Door Art de Fleur collection, and I have used some lace and pink gems around the edge. It's all backed on to baby blue and white cardstock.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #170 - Sketch Time

Top Tip Tuesday #40 - T is for.... Challenge

Oh, and if you were wondering, my "T" was for "three", as I have 3 of a few things on my card :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #169 Birthstones

This is my first challenge I am entering, and I'm a bit excited :) This week's Cute Card Thursday challenge is Birthstone. I had two birthstones to choose from - Garnet and Emerald, and I chose emerald, because I found garnet really difficult to match up within my stash...

I have used emerald green and white cardstock, a sheet from the Linen Closet Stack, pearlescent paper, Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamp, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Copics G00, G02, G07, and green grossgrain ribbon.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ballerina girl

I did this card for a friend of my sister. I purchased the papers and embellishments from Lime Tart as part of the June Full Tart kit. I absolutely love anything vintage and girly, so I couldn't wait to snap up this gorgeous kit!

I found the layout from Colleen's blog, and adapted it (slightly :) ), so thank you very much Colleen for the inspiration!

The pretty little lady is La-La Land Crafts Marci Ballerina, and coloured in with Copics.

The papers are The Girls' Paperie vintage whimsy, and I have added a tag, a few ribbons, and a pearl brad.

Here is a close up of the little ballerina, I mounted her using foam tape so she would "pop"!
