Daughter's 18th Birthday Cards

It is my daughter's 18th tomorrow and as usual I have left it until the last minute to make some cards. I have had the ideas in my head but had not actually started it until today, so this is why I am on here so late as my head is now buzzing with ideas. Hope you like them.
The papers are free from Making Cards Magazine. Swirl leaf flourish is Marianne creatables die. I used a fiskars paper lace border punch and best of all I used the Spellbinders Rose Creations die which I just had to get when I saw this lovely rose on Julie's inkspot blog. Made on an 11 x 6 card.

This one was made using my old favourite mcs cd using papers and designing topper and then adding a lace ribbon with a brad into a star spacer. This was made on an 8 x 8 card. Thanks for looking and your comments are very much appreciated. Karen xx

My Masterpiece

Hi again. I can't believe I have another card for you to see. This is my masterpiece thanks to Ooops Cluttered Corner blog  I followed her tutorial on how to colour in using promarkers. Her blog has inspired me as she is such a brilliant designer. A big thanks Nic. I also looked on The Crafty Cuttings of Wiccababe blog for different hair colours. I just love these sassy stamps from Funky Kits website
  • Papers from cd cut into borders
  • spellbinders nesties
  • sassy stamp - hippie chick
  • promarkers used - coral, sunkissed pink, blush
  • walnut, cocoa, cinnamon, tan
  • tulip yellow, buttercup, pear green
  • pastel blue for her eyes and pastel pink for her rosy cheeks.
  • Last but not least, flower spacers and gems
By the way the image took me 2 hours to actually colour in, so I am not going to be in a hurry to give this card away. Hopefully I will get better with my blending. Thanks for looking. xx

I am entering this card as my first ever challenge to: I love promarkers - Challenge #71 Anything Goes

    Beautiful Butterfly

    Couldn't wait to show you this one. I have been meaning to get this butterfly die for ages and I've finally got it. It is the Marianne butterfly die #2. I also bought the spellbinders rose creation die, but I haven't used it yet, but watch this space.
    Using Marianne creatable butterfly die and glittering it using a spray adhesive, what a mess I got myself into using this spray. Also I used sizzix texture plates on my Big Shot machine and then added a few gems to finish off. I have seen so many beautiful cards made using white on white I thought I would give it a go, but just had to add a touch of glitter and gems. Thanks for looking. xx

    Two more mens cards

    Hi, I thought I would add these two cards, one for father's day and for a birthday.
     Papers again from cd, this time using an element sheet.
     This one was also made using an element sheet.
