Pretty Decorative Papers Take the Limelight

Hi Dreamers,
Back today with two more cards that feature pretty decorative papers.  I also added some snow globe dimensional stickers that coordinate with the paper.  You know how you are walking down the aisle of the craft store....and find all the interesting coordinating stickers, chipboard cut outs, etc.  Well, I just can't resist some of them !!   I always seem to pick up a couple packages!   I wanted to use some of those as they have a striking visual impact.  But, you can't just stick them on a card.    I always have to design a card around them.  So, I designed today's  cards around the snow globe stickers to make these uplifting cards.

All the Decorative papers and the snow globes are from K & Company.

The first card also has an inspirational sentiment from The Stamping Place and a Bashful Blue  (Stampin' Up)  card base

I added a pale blue satin ribbon and pearls (A Muse Studios)

The second card has a card base made from Sage Shadow CS (Stampin' Up retired color).  

I added a pale green satin ribbon  and pearls ( both from A Muse Studios)

A few fun Challenges for my Winged Cards:
Penny's Paper-Crafty: anything goes
Word Art Wednesday: anything with an uplifting sentiment
Anything Goes Challenge: In the garden with butterflies
Creative Card Crew: wings
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: blue

I am still working on the card order.  I have 40 cards made now.  I am going to make a couple more and that should do it.  That will keep my customer happy for a while sending out happy mail!  I will photograph a few more of the cards from the order to share with you next time.  So, see you then!  Love ya.
