Taheerah Atchia has chosen a darling inspiration picture for this week's Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge. I decided to use the colours as my inspiration and make a shaker card for my cousin - she loves interactive cards!
I took a piece of pink Wplus9 cardstock as a card base and added some champagne shimmer (Recollections) overtop. I cut out a Wplus9 red piece using PTI's Limitless Layers. I also cut out a piece with some white fun foam and a transparency. I stamped PTI's Wet Paint using my ever faithful Versafine Onyx Black and then added some Ranger glitter (Rock Candy) and Impress square sequins.
As you can see, I offset the red cardstock from the foam for an extra pinked edge ... something a little different!
For a finishing touch, I added a few Heidi Swapp Gold mist droplets here and there ...
Thanks, Taheerah, for the inspiration! :)

I was racing to get some cards made for this blog hop - it's been a long day! I was inspired by the Kate Spade-esque design feel. Here's the inspiration pic:
Check out the glossy gold embossing ... it adds such class, doesn't it? :) I used Rustic Cream card stock so it does have some 'rustic' flecks ...
My next card (which I wasn't able to get in the link up (I missed it by one minute!) is the following - a condolence I needed to make for a colleague:
I used a good old standby Round and Round anniversary set for the sentiment with the nice deep black of Versafine Black Onyx. Or is it Onyx Black? :)

I made two cards for the vintage patterns challenge ... What fun! The first was a mixture of Lace Bouquet images using Fresh ink on Winter Wisteria.
The second was with Delightful Dahilia additions and Fresh inks on Rustic Cream.

So the fabulous Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-Faire starts tomorrow! Whoo hoo! I am getting together with a few crafty friends in town and we will be playing along with the challenges all day tomorrow. Can't wait! Just gotta pack my bag and get all ready! I just got home from dinner with a friend who is going out of town soon but made a Make it Monday card earlier that I will share ...
So I better get started packing up some supplies to take to my Stamp-A-Faire event tomorrow and snacks for everyone too ... I'm sure everyone is excited to get started on the challenges. Of course, being on the West Coast of Canada, we will be a bit behind since they start at 7am MST which means an absurdly early hour here ... :)

Over at Papertrey, this week's challenge is die cut borders. I am not enamored worth my first creation, but I will share anyways.
