Bits'n'pieces challenge & Cute Card Thursday

My crafting friend Samantha set a little group of us a challenge ... she sent each of us a secret envelope and we had to make a card with the contents ...yikes! This is what she sent:

  • Penny Black flower stamped image - "Portraits"

  • Penny Black butterfly stamped image

  • Pink silk flower

  • Silver flower brad

  • length of pink sticky ribbon

  • Piece of whitecard embossed with Cuttlebug dots

  • Pink tag

This what I made.... I based my theme around the piece of brown/pink background paper I had luckily bought just before - so I coloured the flowers and butterfly with pink Twinkling H2O's and used some pink pee wee glitter to mirror the glitter on the paper, then cut them out and decoupaged them. I also used a Papermania brown pearl brad, a silver peel off on the tag, pink Papermania gems and some silver stringed ribbon to add finishing touches.

Luckily enough this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge #26 is Pretty in Pink ... so I hope the general girly, flowery, sparkly, fluttery nature of this card qualifies LOL!


  1. What a fab sparkly card! I love how all our cards look different even though we've all used exactly the same bits! I think you must have developed psychic powers - that paper is perfect! lol
