Happy Saturday Everyone!!!!!

I hope your weekend is filled with fun so far, I am having a blast!! I reorganized my craft room meaning I am getting down to business and my sister and I got together last night and made a card together, check it out!

I used Peachy Keen Stamps to make the wedding car, I stamped it several times on different colored paper ( orange/yellow glitter card stock and Silver card stock ), cut the pieces out and layered them.
 Note * (they are no longer available because Peachy Keen Stamps is gone digital and once something sells out they are gone for good but there are still lots of other stamps left!)
I used white card stock for the card base measuring 5 1/2 " by 5 1/2" then I used another piece of white card stock measuring 4 1/2" by 5 1/4" and embossed it using the BLANK embossing folder. I made a scalloped top to this piece using Scallop Stitched die cuts from Creative Expressions. I place the stamped image on a Iron work Accent by Spellbinders with 3D tape and surround it with flowers  from Wild Orchid Crafts and a feather. Finally I place flowers on top of the rose ribbon, stamped Congratulations and added swirly pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts

 I made this card last summer, isn't it elequent!!!!  I learned to make a box from Christina Griffith from over at Flower's Ribbon's and Pearls  ( LOVE LOVE LOVE her work) The Bride, Groom, Bible and note card was from a Sticker sheet from the dollar store! (Imagine that! Everyone loved this card so much  I went back and bought them all, lol ). Then I adhered the stickers to white  card stock and fussy cut around them. The flowers of course are from the only place I get them, Wild Orchid Crafts.( Not enjoying the exchange rate for the past year I admit. )

This is another card I did over the summer for a friend of mine for his wife who framed it!! The image is from Precious Momments.

I hope you enjoyed my post , enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!!

Back to the challenge; so the theme is
"For the Men in Your Life"

Here are my cards:

The first card is for my handsome young man, Michael loves pomegranate organic lollipops so I thought it would be nice to make an opening on top that could hold them. 

The lighting wasn't that great, dull day so imagine a bright red

Digital Image - Kenny k stamps 
Heart boarder- Spellbinders 
Heart die - Cricut Cartridge "Celebrate with Flourish"
Sentiment - Cricut Cartridge "Celebrate with Flourish"

2nd Card

My second card is not for anyone in particular, I just wanted to have fun with this sexy digital stamp from Kenny k, I love his stamps!!!!

The black roses are really hard to see, I tried different angles and different lighting but couldn't make them show.

 I made the glitter back ground using sticky embossing powder then added diamond dust on black cardstock paper. The silver Chevron strip underneath the image was from a gift bag from the dollar store!
