In the Stars

August is a month for Anniversaries – ours was last week and my parents’ is this week!

I was inspired by some Pinterest posts of different cards with water coloring that looked like these amazing multi-colored galaxies full of stars.  I decided to try my hand at it.  I am always amazed at how great water coloring can look and how adding some little extras can give it dimension (no pun intended!).  This is the card I made for my hubby – which is similar to the one I sent to my parents.  I can tell you that the photo just couldn’t capture all the shimmer, shine and depth!

Clean and Simple Birthday

I have not made many CAS (clean and simple) cards – they seem much more difficult than the fussy ones because every little detail has to be perfect!  I decided to give this card a try after seeing Jennifer McQuire use the floral die that I have to make a set of these.  They sure are not as simple to make as they look, but the final product turned out pretty well for my second try :).

This card was for my dear Mom – no amount of time or talent would be enough to convey my birthday wishes last month!
