Pink, Lots of Bling, & Winter

Hello, and a very happy Thursday to everyone. Here is my card for this week's CASology #26 challenge - "Winter." I made this snowflake/starburst by using SU! tag punches and a scrap of snowflake dsp. For the center I used a SB sprocket diecut with 2 MS snowflake punches on top, and then added a shiny silver snowflake sticker to the center. The sentiment by Hero Arts was done with Memento Paris Dusk ink. They're calling for more of the white stuff here in PA for later next week, so this warm spell we're having right now is just a teaser!


Here's a card for Oozak's challenge #10 - "anything goes with pink and bling." I used an OWH digi image and colored with Copics, adding some Pizzazz Aplenty ribbon, pink bling, and a teardrop shaped pearl falling from the pup's eye. The card base is kraft, the dsp is PTI and the sentiment was computer generated and layered with a hand-cut banner and a word window punch.

Since I used all this bling, I'm also entering this card over at the Moxie Fab World challenge where they're celebrating 75 Creative Card Challenges week. The #7 challenge is to use 10 or more embellishments. I think this card qualifies :)

Thanks for spending a little of your time with me here, and I wish you all a wonderful Thursday!

Carol

Wow I haven't made one of those tag stars in a couple of years. I love them, so thank you for reminding me. This snowflake paper and the way you finished the center really makes the snowflake pop right off the card. Your second card is just precious. Love that teardrop. I've always loved that dog. I wish you are great day.

You did not just say white stuff! I am still waiting for the 60 degrees they promised. Girl, when you are on a roll with cards, you are really on a roll! I can not even figure out that gorgeous snowflake. Lessons, please! As for the blinged out pooch, simply adorable, right down to the shadow she is lying on!

Carol, your snowflake/starburst is so pretty and I really like the center.
The puppy is too sweet. The teardrop was just perfect for a 'miss you' card..even if a little sad. I like the blingy cap.

I didn't think it ever warmed up in the north!! LOL! Stay out of that snow and bad weather!

BOTH, again, are fantastic! Love the colors on the first card and that puppy is so cute with his blingy hat and one little tear drop!

Both cards are really terrific, Carol! Your snowflake card is very pretty with your color combo and pretty papers! LOVE everything that is added to the center! The puppy card couldn't be any cuter! Adore all the rhinestones on it's hat! This card says it all for me as tomorrow would have been Fluffy's 15th birthday and we miss her ohhh SO much. TFS!
