Layer it UP! for 3 Girl JAM

It's Thursday, and I have the privilege of posting today for 3 Girl JAM.  I love any opportunity to showcase my favorite ribbons and lace!
Today's card is soft, pretty, and layered with lace and ribbon.
The image on this card is from Aurora Wings.  I love coloring roses, and this one was a joy.  The designer papers used on this card are "Always and Forever" 6x6 papers from Wild Rose Studio.
I used 2 different laces from the Distressed Lace Bundle.  The crinkle ribbon is from the Tie Dye Bundle.  A little lace and ribbon make this card look so feminine.

Wishing You Blue Skies - for SDS

It's Wednesday, and I'm posting today for Snapdragon Snippets.  We've had some really cold weather lately, but one thing about cold weather -- the sun shines, and the sky is the prettiest blue of the whole year.  Those blue skies were the inspiration behind today's project...

This Heart Air Balloon cutting file can be found in the Snapdragon Snippets Store.  I sized it to fit on the front of a 5x 6 1/2 card front.  
Designer papers are My Mind's Eye Love Me Do, 12x12.  I purchased them for the cloud background paper.  I have this "thing" for cloud paper.  I can't get enough of it.  The sentiment is a stamp from Joy's Life Stamps. The bling and glitter trim are from Close To My Heart.
Visit the blog often for more great inspiration.  The Snapdragon Snippets Store is adding new great designs all the time. Don't forget the Snapdragon Snippets Facebook Page and the Snapdragon Snippets Creative Garden Facebook Fan Page.

Just Because -- GD for The Sisterhood of Crafters

This is my second and final post guest designing for The Sisterhood of Crafters.   I have enjoyed my experience very much!
The theme this time is paper piecing &/or piercing.  My card has a bit of both:
The image is a digi from Sandi's Samples. It was printed 3 times.  The base was colored with Copic markers.  Two of the layers were fussy cut, then glued on to the base.  Paper piecing achieved!  The paper piercing around the edges was done with dies by Lawn Fawn.  
The papers on this card and the sentiment are from Close To My Heart.  The tie dye crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. The butterfly was cut out with a die from Cheery Lynn.
I'd like to thank Darlene Pavlick and the rest of the Sisterhood of Crafters design team for the opportunity to be a Step Sister this month.  It's been great fun!
