Wedding dancers!

Hi crafters,
I've been doing a lot of wedding cards lately and here's the first one to show you. They asked for some 50's salsa dancers on the card so I printed this image of dancers in silhouette just incase I had the wrong dance lol!!
I used an X-cut die for the frame and some corner dies on the layer behind it. I added some WOC flowers, leaves from a Cheery Lynn die and some pins in matching colours.

I also made a presentation box for the card and used acetate and peel offs for the finishing touch.
I'd like to enter my card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is 'To Die for'.
I hope you like my card and thank you so much for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Sew special!

Hello again friends!
I'm back from my hols and ready to craft again lol!
I've made this birthday card for a friend who's just bought her first sewing machine. The image is from Lisa's CD 'A year in cards' and I printed off the digi image and coloured it with my promarkers to match the backing papers.  I added some coordinating buttons and threaded some matching thread on to the die cut reels. The tape measure ribbon added to the sewing theme! The sentiment is also from the CD and was perfect to finish off the card. I hope she likes it!
I'd like to enter my card in the 'button it' challenge at Passion for Promarkers.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx
