A Shiny Mandela Flower

Good morning!  We start another fun challenge today over at Tuesday Throwdown!  Our theme is Glimmer and Shine. This week we have a new sponsor, and I love their stuff!  
Studio Katia has beautiful stamps and embellishments!  Today I have a fun card to share using their Mandela Flower stamp for the image, the sentiment is from their Blooming Bunch set, the bling is from their Crystal Rainbow Confetti and Crystal Rainbow Fusion.  (I tried to use all the colors included in the bling sets.  They're so fun!)

.  This picture doesn't do the colors justice.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and added a strip of shimmery yellow ribbon.  The lavender mat is glitter cardstock, for just a little more shine!

Now, who doesn't want to play with bling this week?!?  Get to sparkling and come join us!

A Rainbow Zebra

Hello!  Today is another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by "Your Next Stamp" and they have the cutest stamps!

I've used their stamp set "Jungle Critters 2" for my card:

I've stamped the zebra 3 times.  The first layer is on the card base, the second and third were on a separate piece of scrap and I've hand cut them out, the third layer is just his face and both layers are mounted with pop dots so he really stands out with some dimension.  He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment stamp is part of the set and the little dots are sparkly Gumdrops available from our sponsor.   

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll join us at Tuesday Throwdown!
