CCAT3 - Style a While in Paris...

I just love that little Eiffel Tower!  Someday I'll see the real thing...

This design was made for the Crafty Catwalk Challenge CCAT3 - Style a While.  The challenge is to create something shimmery on a dark background.  I chose the set, Artstic Etchings, to give me an elegant, classy image.  The image itself has such detail, that I chose to keep the rest of the card clean and simple (not a bad thing when stamping time is limited).

Thanks for stopping by.  I would love to know what you think!  Have a day filled with amour!

CCAT2 - Use What Ya' Got and Delicious Faux Pearls

Crafty Catwalk Challenge

Yes, I collect pretty paper.  Well, I don't mean to collect it, I purchase it, but then find it too pretty to use.  Crazy, I know.  Do you have this affliction?  Then, stop by the Crafty Catwalk and take this challenge!  It's fun and gives you an excuse to Use What Ya' Got!

Inspired by Miu Miu's sunglasses, the challenge here is to use your designer paper as a frame for the focal image of your project. 

Crafty Catwalk Challenge

So what's a girl to do when she wants pearls, but spends most of her money on pretty paper?  Make faux pearls, of course!  I really wanted the little flowers to pop off and on the card, so I folded the petals upward, adhered them with foam dimensionals, and added... my own faux pearls!

Discovering this technique, to me, was delightful... no... rather... delicious!  So, I am also including this as part of a SCS challenge CAS82:  Be inspired by the word "delicious."

I'll try to post tomorrow the how-to for making these faux pearls - so easy - so fun!  Thanks for stopping by!
