LCOM Card Challenge - Image Inspiration!!

This week's challenge over at LCOM is to use this image of my boots as inspiration for your card!  Everytime I look at this picture I just want to go put the boots on and walk around in them, just love them!
 I took my inspiration from the colours in the boot and the textured flower.  I used a canvas flower on my card for texture and made it the focal point of my card just like it is on the boot.  I also used card patterns sketch #78 for this card.
Products used:
PP - Pink Paislee Vintage Glam & Cosmo Cricket
Flower - Prima
Pin - Maya Road
Jute - Misc

LCOM Card Challenge - Die Cuts!

This week over at LCOM the card team has another fabulous challenge for you!!!  This week you need to dust off those punches and die cutting machines!!!  It is all about using die cuts and punches!!  On my card I used a pre-made die cut from the pink paislee queen bee line and then punched a butterfly out using coordinating paper.  The design for this card is a great way to use up scraps for a coordinating line of paper!

Also I have been away for a couple of weeks on vacation so I apologize for not posting.  But while I was gone last week the card team's challenge was to use embossing on their card, here is mine:
Products used:
pp, trim, die cut - Pink Paislee Queen Bee Line
Flower & brown trim - Prima
Pearls - Kaiser Craft
Rubon - Melissa Frances
  A couple of weeks ago I was in the final 8 for The Studio design team.  I was not selected for the team but felt so honoured to be part of the final 8.  Tip:  to help make your own embellishments on a LO use some of your PP.  Here I cut out flowers from the sheets of PP to use as my flower and vine embellishments.  Here is the LO I created for this, it had to be one of the bravest things you have ever done.  For me that was auditioning for so you think you can dance and being rejected.  It was a let down but I was glad I was brave enough to do it!
Products used:
PP, trim & sticker - Pink Paislee Queen Bee Line
Pearl Swirl - Zva Creative
