Good day

It is Sunday and it is time for another challenge at Glitter 'n Sparkle. This time you must use black. The girls made some gorgeous creations.
I have used Good vs Bad from Sassy Studio Designs, one of our sponsors this week and one of my favourite designers. I used glitter paper from my The Twinkle Glints stack from DCWV. I have the same design emboss folder that I used on the silver too. I got inspired by all the beautiful bows that I saw lately that I just had to add one with a heart charm and some metal corners.

Clubs and Spades

Good Day

It has been quite a while that I have this image from Bugaboo and I wanted to play with it. When I saw the anniversary challenge, this image came up. Then I struggled with the colour combo and yesterday I went through my papers in search for autumn colour I came upon this piece of fresh blue and green striped papers. Not quite what I had in mind the first round, but it all came together. I played with my Fiskar border punches with the diamonds and hearts. In the end I added a piece of washi tape on top and I used my latest edition of brads - diamond ring.
Stella and Gus are such fun characters to play with and it has been quite a while since I joined Catch the bug Challenges.
