We are showcasing Tim Holtz sentiments this week and I have used his Visual Artisty Just Say. The stamp I wanted was out of stock to I chose this one insead and so glad I did - I use it constantly. I created the background with stamed with Her0 Arts Elegant Brocade and the center across panel with Simon Says 'Life is a Journey' stamp.



This is my second card - it should have been the first one until I had a Migraine which stopped my in my tracks and didn't have time to finish it in time.
I used the Hero Arts Tree Artistic Butterflies and colour them in copics and finished them with Rangers Perfect Pearls.

Here is my new card for Everybody Art Challenge which theme is.......

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
I used the cute Wild Rose Studio Mouse On Presents - I wanted it quite colourful but I'm not sure this worked very well!!!  I kept a very simple design using the Wild Rose Studio - Silverton Hall pad bordered with Simon Says Olive cardstock..........I have used every shade available for the border but the Olive ended up  the best. To finish the card I added the  Simon Says Birthday Die.

Simon Says Stamp May 'Happily Ever After' Kit.

1_323194_FS

This is a card made for the products in the Simon Says Stamp May 'Happily Ever After' Kit.
The have so many beautiful foiled papers, the one problem was just making my mind which to use first...........this one............ 


I chose this one as it is my favourite - I think!! - it more or less created it's self.
I stamped the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Gold Embossing Powder and also used the stamp to created the corner spots. The gold hearts are from the part of some of the fabulous stickers in the Ket.
The only part of the card not from this 'Kit' is a piece of card a piece of the Card Kit April 2015 as the back of the card.
