The card I am posting today was made for my husband's birthday and fits the theme for the new challenge over on MTTC perfectly, "2 images one card"

I started with an 8x8 base card and cut away part of the front. After inking edges and trimming to fit I layed a golf backing paper on the inside and on the front leaving a small border. I then chose a contrasting paper and layered this onto the front and part of the inside. I inked and layered the same backing paper used for the inside onto a piece of card trimmed to fit my toppers. I stamped my two images and inked the edge of the golfer before removing from the wonky rectangle die used. My toppers were placed onto the square matt and added to the card, I then finished with some card candi.

Love of music

My post today I made for my daughter's 16th birthday, Holly loves music and blue is her favourite colour. I thought it would be great for this week's challenge over at MTTC as the theme is music or movie influence.
My card is a teal 8x8 card, my first layer is white card which I used a music embossing folder. I then used the same teal card to cut two borders and matt them on to black card. I cut a star and layered it onto silver mirror card before putting it onto my card. I cut smaller stars for embellishments along with musical note symbols. I then stampsed out the words happy birthday and cut out Holly's name and the number 16 before adding these to the card, I finished off adding a few gems.
