Peachy Keen Stamps No 14 .. Daring Card Makers Favourite Things...Charisma Cards - Just Us Girls Blog Challenge!

Ok ok ok... I just got soooooooooooo excited when I saw these challenges...  I have used lots of things that I love and drool over!  (Does that make me sad lol!!)  Looks like so far.. I have added this to FOUR challenges... Maybe I need to be stopped ... even dreaming of crafting now.... Oh Dear!!


***Make a card
***Use the colors PINK AND BROWN as the main color scheme.
***Use a stamped image (preferably Peachy Keen Stamp - but not required)
***Incorporate a piece of ribbon
***Use some type of glitter (stickles are fine!)

Sadly I didn't have any of their images to use.. doh!


Also the Delightful Daisies Challenge on Charisma Cardz... I blame them as I do love daisies... oops this will be my third entry with them this week!  (Bet that isn't allowed?!)


This is a chance to go mad with the papers, embellishments, tools and styles you really love to use.
I'd like you to use at least 5 of your own personal favourite things on your card this week - if you can make it 10 then you can claim our DCM Gold Star - virtual, of course lol.


Hope you like this... I have added rather a few photos as I am just realllllllllllllly pleased with how it has turned out!

Some of my favourite things I used on this card were...

1.  Embossing, as in dry ... just love changing the look of papers.

2. Water-colouring... I painted the images with water-colour.. love their effect.

3. Glitter... what girlie doesn't love glitter!  Used a lovely yellow one here for the centre of the daisies.

4.  Feather.. as I thought it added some soft texture to the card.

5.  Flowers... I made these for this card using lots of different papers that I have and in different sizes.. adorable!

6.  Ribbon... love this polka dot brown ribbon.. goes so well with the colours too!

7.  Handmade paper with flowers in... luxury and I  use very little as soooo nice!

8. Heart Gem Stones... in pink too.. woooah!

9.  Shimmer Paints... used these on top of the water-colour paints on the steps... to give it that lovely glimmer... fantastic!

10.  Glitter Pen... Oh how I love my glitter pen... want it on everything!  I used a clear glitter on the card and on the envelope a pink and silver one.

11. faithful daisy stamp on the envelope... just love it!

Think I should stop now lol...

I also  have added this to Just Us Girls Challenge..some really lovely challenges out there.. I could just keep going and going... someone stop me!!

Well do you just love this as much as I do??????
