Here are a couple of challenges I played with yesterday, though I really should pay a bit more attention to the layering on a sketch. I stuck everything down then realised I didn't have a scallop detail or ribbon across the corner. Oh well, necessity is the mother of invention, or so they say.
I have been trying out a few techniques that were demonstrated in Jennifer McGuire's Inspiration Showcase, namely, using Perfect Pearls. The little geometric designs were stamped in Versamark then dusted with Perfect Pearls, then "waved" through a mist of water. Love the effect. The flowers look a little unbalanced but really couldn't think of another way out of my dilemma.

This is the birthday card I made for one of my daughter's friends - actually Michelle's daughter. It is based on a card Dawn McVey did about a month ago using Hero Arts/Basic Grey papers and stamps. As it was a Hawaiian themed party, I really overdid the tropical flowers.
Hope she liked it and enjoyed her special day.
