Season's change.....

Hey all,
Have you noticed the new banner up here?? It's a SURPRISE!! It's something new to my blog. Just keep following for the complete reveal soon :)
It's so exciting that seasons change and the best part is that winter is approaching. But let's not hurry and better enjoy today's season with a FALL card:

This card is simple to make but has taken so much time to coordinate the colors. The flower was stamped twice and cut for two sizes: the outer and the inner part. To add some beauty, I embellished the stamped flower with another tiny flower inside and adhered  four white pearls.

This card is entering for:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #78 
Color Throwdown #112
PPC #32
Unscripted Sketches #74 
Crazy4Challenges #56
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge   
AiFactory Challenge #49
Wild Orchid Challenge #6
Tellen's Place 
Fashionista Friday #48
Tuesday Taggers Challenge

Wow!! That's a long list. Thanks for reading and do stay tuned.....

Hope your day is WONDERFUL!

Hi ladies,
Hope your today, tomorrow and everyday is Wonderful!!!
I'm so happy to get back to one of my long-time challenges and that is Picture Perfect Creations. So today's card is my newest entry for two challenges: PPC and Sketch it Saturday. Here is the color combo:

The colors have added so much life to my card!!! Most of the time was spent with the sizes so as to fit the blossom appropriately. And woohoo I did it :) The stamp had the word 'birthday' but I trimmed it to say 'day' instead. The last touch was the swirls from e-line collection.

Getting closer:

That's for now. Thanks for leaving some love...

Paper Purse

Hi all,
Back to crafting!!! Today I'm showing you a cute paper purse that was specially made for Blackleaf Studios blog.

The cardstock was cut from a template and then scored. After folding, I attached the ribbon and adhered the bag front. On the other side, I colored the cupcake image from Cupcake Stamps set and scalloped it with !-inch circles. Finally, the embellishments were added.
If you're interested in grabbing some beautiful digi images then rush to my post here and leave a comment!!! Good luck...
Thanks for stopping by...

Digital card...

Hi everybody,
Since I'm yet on vacation, I made a digital card this time for my first DT post.
