My sister Barb is the girly girl between the two of us, I am not one to get excited about cloths and make-up (I think I am repeating myself). However I have found that I like pretty stamps… go figure. This card is a bright cheery card, I wanted to make a card so bad last evening but I did not have a focus so I made a focus. This card will be for a co-worker of my husband who I know has a birthday coming up in the next few months and before he can pull a short order request out of his pocket I already have a card that I can tuck away.

This card portrait misses a few key focal points, the dress and shoe are both sparkly a nice elegant sparkle, where as the second layer is a heavy glitter paper. I chose yellow because I wanted to use the yellow flowers, they come together in their little container with the turquoise one so why not card ‘em that way. I stamped on the off white with small specks cardstock from Stampin’ Up as I find it a little less hard then a full on white cardstock.

Supplies: Turquoise and yellow cardstock, Natuals white – Stampin’up, Designer paper – The glitter stack, Stamp-it – Audrey-esq, Inkadinkado – Shoe, Impression Obsession – It’s your day, Straight and narrow ribbon, Misc brads, Misc flowers.

Have a great day.


  1. Wow! I love the stamp of the glamourous redhead!!!! Vava-voom!!!! Love your cards...pure eye candy!!!!

  2. Aw c'mon Sis, you're truly not Ms Testosterone, you ARE girly, but in a much more subtle way than me. I'm ridiculous like a kid in the candy store kind when I get near anything that sparkles. Why its probably embarrassing. You've got good taste haha, I have NONE. If it shines or sparkles its for me. I'm sure the What Not to Wear Crew would have a hayday with me. They're not getting NEAR my closet - I'll tell ya. I'll wear sequins and long gowns to coffee when I'm 90 - you bet. And you'll have to take care of me *snort*

    Good idea being all ready to unleash the card BEFORE it is requested! I think this is lovely and should be a true hit! Sounds like you have a retail line with a customer list already LOL! Got a toll-free order number? *snicker*

    Have a happy day.
