Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Something Borrowed, Something Blue 
is the name for the very first CARDS Challenge for September at

The Nook will be closing its doors at the end of this month, but boy, they're
going out with a bang with this final kit by Echo Park Paper:
"For the Record2"
The blues, greens and yellows are a perfect way to end the Summer.
For my challenge, I've asked participants to create a card using:

Something Borrowed: this can be anything unconventional to scrapbooking.
 Scour the house for an unusual item...use a cookie cutter as a template, 
fabric from an old dress, jewelry, or the image from a gift card as the inspiration
...just anything that inspires will do!
Something Blue:  make any color blue as your main color scheme.

Here's my take on the challenge:

Something Borrowed:  I always save bits and pieces of interesting clothing...especially denim.
  I cut a small piece from an old shirt and lined the back with a bit of batting and then machine
stitched into a heart design.

This card is two-part as I wanted to share some more of the lovelies that can
be found at PRO 31 DESIGNS

The blue braided trim and pearls, as well as the turquoise paper flowers 
are all in supply at :)

That's all from me blessed!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
