It's Tuesday Friends!!!
I want to take a moment and thank all those who serve(d) our country for our freedom.  My sincere blessings to those families who lost loved ones in this honor!!

SCACD Friends with Heart has another fabulous challenge for you to enter!!!!  Challenge #9 is in Honor of Memorial Day (which was celebrated yesterday) here in the US~~ soooo we would like you to use stars on your creations!!!
 The prize for this month is the Fantastic Peekers Collection by E. Bell!!!  So get out any stamp that Susana carries in her store--click here to view them--and join us :0)
****My card with stars*****
I decided to use Forest Fairy by VC for SCACD.   So darling aren't they??  The background is shaded with a soft blue--can hardly see and then I used SU stars background stamp with yellow ink and added blue star crystal stickers also.  Sentiment is from my stash.  Colored image with copics; sparkled wings with Frosted Lace Stickles; used diamond glaze on eyes--spots on fawn--and larger yellow stars.  
Card made with White, blue and yellow Cardstock.  The yellow was embossed with SU Northern Flurry folder and then I inked raised design with versamark, sprinkled with Ranger holographic embossing powder and heat set.  See the sparkle below!!  Bow made with my Bow Easy and added a Paper Studio star.

The inside~~There is that cute little fairy again :D

Graduation Card

A friend asked me to make an Easel Graduation Card for her son!!!  
Paper is Colorbok~~midnight pack that I got at local walmart~~love it for masculine or elegant cards.  The embossed swirls on this dp are embossed and very shiny.  There are 3 layers of paper the white cs, a shiny texturized off-white paper and then the elegant dp.  The saying was computer generated and I found it on somewhere out in blogland.  Cut out with SB nestie and softened with TH weathered wood ink while in nestie adhered to card with foam tape for dimension.  Added blingy grad hat stick-on.  Finished with Wild Orchid flowers and leaves. Oh and if you loook close under the yellow rose is a blingy grad scroll stick-on also :))   American Crafts thickers were used for his name.
Don't ya just love this saying!!

Inside has sleeve with message cards and base of easel card is held up with black pearls.  Completed with ribbon and SB fancy tag.  The sentiment is a Northwoods rubber stamp that I stamped on black cs with versamark and heat embossed with Zing white embossing powder.
