All the Pretty Things!

I've got a HUGE announcement to make! I was asked to be on The Card Concept Design Team! Yaaaaaaay!

This DT is so full of talent, that I'm a little bit speechless to be amongst such crazy talented crafters! Which makes me a little nervous for my first posting, naturally!

Even though I was nervous, when I saw the beeeeeeeautiful inspiration image, a design just popped right into my head and this layery lux card sort of happened.


I've never thought about mixing black and gold patterns - but it turns out it works! This is why I love inspiration images, because they force you to try things you never might have otherwise. I added some glittery gemstones, a glitter-dipped feather, and some die cuts sent to me by a bloggy friend (thanks Betty!).

This card is also going to play along in:
Ooh La La Creations - Feminine Challenge
Card Mania - Layer It
Simon Says Stamp - Start Afresh (brand new die cut shapes, brand new paper packs)

I'm soooooooooooo excited to have broken out the Valentine's Day cards. It's my favorite time of the year! I'd love for you go see what else my talented new teamies came up with for The Card Concept Challenge. (Believe me you'll be blown away!)


    Such a pretty card, love love love all the details!
