The image is from my stash of ready to go images - colored with shiny metallic pens. The shiny gems in the flower centers are from my stash. The bit of ribbon is from a gift basket we just received - full of burgundy and gold packaging - alas, all those pretty boxes and bags have print on most of the surfaces so only the gorgeous ribbon was usable as the strip behind the image.
I dusted off a Martha Stewart punch for the border, and a fancy corner rounder as well. I could not make it show up, but there is a gold layer between the burgundy mat and the embossed dot layer. I also included gold strips with delicate hearts to edge the vertical strip. More gold was used for the numbers. (I recycled a very large advertising envelope for those gold pieces.) The card is 5x7.

Another in my series. The stamped image was an RAK; I added a die cut tag with computer sentiment; strip of ribbon, embossed panels.
By the way - Inspired by stamping team - I have not been able to contact you by e-mail or comment - some kind of computer glitch.

Just a couple more to complete in this series! Nothing like going down to the wire...
The image is from an RAK gift - still not recognized. Background: Dry embossed, scraps of DP. (I tore the edges of the green piece to create more contrast with the darker green). I also had some glittery stars and dark green ribbon in my stash.

These cards are about 5x7 and will be sent with gift cards from Samaritan's purse. Several organizations (World Vision, Mercy Corps, Samaritan's purse, among others) offer "gift" items that help those in need around the world. We have started the tradition of selecting items in honor of our family members. We hope this accomplishes a couple of goals - supporting a worthwhile cause and giving to our grandchildren the sense of helping others. Often we have tried to match the gifts to interests of the recipient. This year we read that 2,000 children (mostly in Africa) die each day from water borne disease often due to lack of a clean water system. So our contribution this year goes to providing wells.
OK, off my soap box and back to the card.

The main image is from Art Impressions pop ups- I enhanced some of the color (umbrella, sun, chairs) with chalk pencils. The saying is also AI. Papers are from my never ending stash.

What an adventure ach time I enter two photos here. I cannot seem to figure out how to do the layout. Oh, well - variety adds interest, right?
Stamp by Stampabilities; sentiment by Stampourri; dies - Nestabilities. The blue cs and shiny star cs are new and all the rest (ribbon star, dp) have been around quite a while. (I hope you can see the stars on the larger bg paper.)

In the meantime, I found one that would work behind the window. (I hope you can see the wings of these young angels - I had to crop quite a bit to get the faces to show!) The blue bg is embossed with Tim Holtz' bg folder, and the sentiment is by Stampourri.

For this card I used a freebie from Create with TLC - the verse quoted it "Trust in the Lord with all your heart."- since the image had a logo on part of the border I tore it into an irregular shape, and I think I managed to do the mat in nearly the same shape. I used several papers from a kit I found at a yard sale - the DCWV project stack. I added gel pen coloring, hearts cut from a Cuttlebug die; some gold cord; and half pearls.
