The September theme at Pearly Sparkles Challenges is Pink Pearls and Sparkle. I created this pretty card using both glitter and pearls. I tipped the little roses in glitter and they are super sparkly. I used a white leaf spray die cut which contrasts nicely with the pink patterned paper background.

Welcome to the newest challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge blog. Everyone needs masculine cards from time to time. This card was perfect for a customer's son-in-law. Be sure to join us at the challenge blog and show us your creations.
I started with patterned paper and added a geometric background die cut. Then I grabbed the Tonic Studios textured cardstock for the rectangle, sentiment and the car. This cardstock is fabuous to work with. It has a pearly sheen and beautiful texture. All dies are unbranded.
Be sure to join our challenge and show us your creations.

The July theme at Pearly Sparkles Challenges is for Three of a Kind. I chose to use three butterflies on this pretty collage style card. I love these goopy, full cards. I present these in a clear gift box since they are too dimensional for a standard envelope.

The theme of my first challenge as a design team member at Pearly Sparkles Challenges is for The Boys/Men. I chose a pirate ship die cut from black glitter cardstock for my main image. I liked the look of the "shiplap" background even though the wood is vertical.
I inked the background using Stormy Sky and Frayed Burlap Oxide inks and these blending brushes. I like using these brushes for all of my backgrounds. I left the middle uncovered since I knew the die cut was going to cover it up. Can't waste the precious ink!
I love how this turned out and it will be used as one of the three Father's Day cards I need to create. Be sure to join us at Pearly Sparkles Challenges and show us your creation for the guys.

I am excited to be joining the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog as their newest design team member. The projects are monthly and I can't wait to begin with the June challenge. Pearly and sparkly things are my favorite kind of things.
The current challenge is to create something with a ribbon and/or a bow. There is still plenty of time this month to submit your creation at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog.
Join me next month as well where I will post my first entry on the team.
