Just a bit Flash....

To explain the challenge title a bit, here in New Zealand when something is a little fancy or a bit special we often call it "flash" - so for the challenge over at Southern Girls this time, we want to see something a bit pretty, shiny or glitzy on your projects.





I made two cards... one using a gorgeous pre-coloured image from The Paper Shelter and one using stamps I purchased from Krafters Cart.

If you are in a hurry to get a card done... The Paper Shelter has lots of lovely pre-coloured images.  Isn't she so sweet.  I printed Monique out and used a Spellbinders die to cut her out.  Layered on some textured metallic papers.  Added some stickles for snow and a sparkly snowflake and gem. 


 For this card I used two Altenew sets, both purchased at Krafters Cart.  I stamped the flowers onto some watercolour paper and cut out with my ScanNCut.  I then added a few strokes of Zig Real Brush colour markers and spritzed with water to move the colour about.    The sentiment is from the Happy Blooms set and is Gold embossed on to the Metallic paper. I used a circle frame I had sitting on my desk.  Originally the card panel was to be layered on a red card base, but I put it on upside down - so trimmed it off and added to a white card base.

Come and join us at Southern Girls challenge

Lovely cards Dawn. Glad I am not the only one who has rescued a card as you did after adhering the top panel the wrong way up :-)
