Ruby Wedding

Good morning all, I have a card to share with you today!
This is another of the Ruby Wedding Cards I was asked to make

I wasn't given any ideas so had free reign.
I used a Ruby coloured 6"x6" card base & simply added a panel
of white with a punched border & a panel of  ruby  on top.
I made up the sentiment in my Graphics progamme.
The hearts were punched.
A few little gems to finish off.

You can't see it in the photo but I added a large die cut heart
on the inside to write the greeting on!
I hope you like it!

I'd like to enter this card in a few challenges:
Creative Knockouts - Celebration Time
Word Art Wednesdays - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Hearts
Crafty Boots - Fair & Square

Sunny Days

Good morning all!
Happy Monday to you.
I'm full of the joys today because the sun is shining & I'm not in work all week.
As it's the Edinburgh Festival & Fringe this month,
we've taken some leave to join in the fun!
Anyhoo, as it's Monday, it's time for the new challenge over at
Eureka Stamps where the theme for this week is

The images I have chosen to work with are
I decided if the sun was shining, the colours needed to be bright & cheerful.
I found a piece of paper in my scraps box, (it's from La Pashe), with just
the colours I was looking for!
I found a lovely piece of cardstock to match the pink & took it from there.
The images were coloured using my promarkers
The sentiment was done on my pc in DJB The Cheerleader font.
I cut the fishtails by hand. I used spellbinders dies to cut my ovals & a 
Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly.
The little pearls have been kicking about my stash forever!

I had great fun making this card & I love how it turned out.
I did actually intend to colour the pom poms & perhaps add a little glitter
But hey ho, I forgot I've decided she looks fine as she is so she'll stay that way.
I hope you can play along in the challenge
