I used the FSS images Polka Dotty Flowers and Fred's Flowers v.3 and Whirly Flowers. My card has the yellow polka dotty flower, three layers for my focal flower and then colored, in my paint program, and printed out a sheet of the purple Fred's Flowers. The polka dotty flower has been embellished with white holo glitter on the polka dots and the purple flowers have a green crystal for their centers. All flowers petals were shaped and three purple petals were cut apart and attached with a brad in the corners.
Tracey has so many wonderful digi images and designer papers that can be resized, printed multiple times on a page, printed on card stock, vellum, watercolor paper, designer paper etc to color as your imagination can come up with! She also has a great selection of pre-colored images ready to use!

It was fun making it but as I said, it took a little longer than I had thought it would, partly because I kept adding "details" and layers to give it a vintanegy feel! I hope my daughter likes it. Two down, one to go on the daughter's projects! Now to clean up the paper scraps and put everything back to order on my craft table!!!
Comments are always appreciated and read! Link your projects in your comments or share on Paper Craft Planet!

This digi set comes in a girl and a boy version, complete with very cute sentiments! I love this set, well actually, all of them!! When I showed this card to my DH he said that it looked just like our oldest grandson, I agree! The sentiment was to close to home as I celebrated my 50th this month and the cake couldn't hold the candles!!! Wait, I can't believe I told you that!!! : 0 lol!!! Well, back to the card, it is a simple, versatile, quick design and the images color up easily for a fun-ny Birthday gift.
*Here is the little girl version:
This design is a gift card/money holder. The front of the card uses this weeks Monday Freebie balloons that I colored with Prismacolors. Then I embossed the layered images with Kaleidoscope embossing powder to give them a sparkly shimmery sheen. The inside of the card has the little girl version of Empty Pockets popped up, across from the pocket flap that hides the gift card/money, with the first sentiment that says " . . . I've got nuthin'". Then when the flap is lifted it says ". . . Just kiddin'", and reveals the gift card/money. These images are sooo cute and versatile!
My SPECIAL CODE WORD is: DO , be sure to collect them all to complete the sentence.

The quilled flowers and pearl centered roses are revealed when the box lid is taken off and the side panels drop. They "dance" with the slightest movement of air. These little boxes are easy to make and the designs are endless! If you make one, post a link in the comments below to share, I'd love to see it!
Comments welcome and very much appreciated as always! If blogger gets finiky when you post a comment just try again, it usually goes through!
