May Your Holidays Sparkle.....

Hello dear friends:  I've been taking a break from blogging, this is my first post in almost 2 weeks. I've been feeling very stressed out by the events happening here int he USA, the uncertainty and violence make me feel very worried and fearful of the storm that's brewing in the ever-approaching distance and that is why, every time I post in my blog my dearest wish is that you and your families are doing well dealing with these very difficult and painful times.
Please take care of yourselves and each other.

THE FLOWER CHALLENGE'S theme for the month of August is "SPARKLE", who doesn't love a little bling, eh?
This is the card I made to inspire you to come and play along with my teammates and me in our gallery.

This is the INSIDE of my card.

This is what I used to create this card.

Serene Scenes from Power Poppy.
Spellbinders "Majestic Labels 25"
Cherry Lynn "Corner Lace Deco Dies"
The sentiment is from COZZOO 
Stampin' Up! punch for the inside.
The sentiment is from Power Poppy "Glistening Paperwhites".
The little candle is from Power Poppy "Merry Littles"

For more inspiration, I hope you go check THE FLOWER CHALLENGE blog to see my teammates' beautiful cards and come join us in the gallery.

Thank you for stopping by.
Stay healthy and safe.

Welcome to another SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge, the theme is CAS or KISS=Keep It Simple Sister!!
There was a time when this style of card making was not at all my favorite, I felt that there was a lot of unused card stock and to me, that was kind of wasteful but, since then I've come to appreciate the elegance and simplicity of the CAS style and learned that I can still add some images to utilize the space better.
I browse Pinterest for inspiration and there I found THIS CARD by Janet a.k.a Swanlady 21 and decided to CASE it, thank you, Janet.

Some of the details you can use are a little pop of color, dry and heat embossing and, some thread or ribbon, in my card I added some silver metallic thread.


This is the INSIDE of my card.

I chose to leave the inside without a sentiment, this could be a Wedding or Aniversary card too.
I hope you come and join the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew in our gallery with your CAS cards, for more inspiration, check what the rest of the team has prepared for you.

I want to play with the following challenges.

This is what I used to create this card.

Altenew "Beautiful Day" and "Peony Bouquet".
Stampin' Up! "Flowering Fields"
Stampin' Up! "Delicate Details"
Power Poppy "Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips"
WOW Pearlescent Embossing Powder.

Metallic thread from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by.
Stay healthy and safe.
