I have 2 cards to share today. With the new goodies I got for my birthday, which is right after Christmas, and with the goodies I have bought for myself recently I have lots of new toys to play with so I used some to make these two cards.
The first new goodie I used was this punch from Martha Stewart. I bought it at Michaels with a 50% off coupon from Joann's. Did you know that Michaels accepts all competitors coupons?
The DP is a sheet I have had for a long time and had hidden from myself. The image is a digi image from Fred She Said. Check out her digi images she has some great ones!
The second new goodie I bought ... also using a 50% off coupon from Joann's ... but this time I bought it from Joann's... is the Fleur De Lis Shapeabilities from Spellbinders.
I wanted to make the card with shades of cream but I didn't have the right color cardstock to match the DP I had selected so I tried gray. I found this sheet of DP in my stash and I had the right shades of gray cardstock! I needed something for the center of the card and found this flower that I had bought a long time ago just because they were on clearance! I love pink and gray together so it worked out perfectly. I used a Copic to color the pearls as I only have white ones! I wish I could learn to color with those durned Copics I bought 'cos they are kinda expensive just for coloring pearls!
