A few card shares....

Happy almost Friday!   I meant to post yesterday, but just got too darn busy!   I have a card today for the WPlus9 bday celebration.   This was all about dimension, so I propped up a lot of my elements on pop dots and added some white heat embossing.  I used Quilt Prints and cut two sections out and stamped some directly on the card base (hope that makes sense)!  I used a tiny flower from Fresh Cut Florals as an accent piece and used some scraps from the Quilt Prints for leaves.

I also participated in the latest Papertrey contest.   This one was so cool!   We had to roll a die for each of nine different categories.   By doing that, we had the "building blocks" to create a card!   My elements ended up being the colors Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry, Harvest Gold and Kraft, ribbon, buttons and  spray mist.   I also had to roll to determine the type of card (birthday) and which sketch I had to use.   Here's what I came up with!

I NEVER use ribbon, so that was quite a challenge for me.  I took the ribbon and threaded it with some floss to create a little flower and added the button for the center.   Turned out too cute!   And I sprayed the ink through a mask to come up with the perfect color combo!   

And last but not least, a Valentine for my hubby.   I succeeded (I think) in not making it too "girly".   It's a manly man Valentine, lol!   And he will get a kick out of the funny little creature.....

The weekend is almost here!   Can you feel it?!?!
