Out My Comfort Zone

Hi everyone........today I am sharing a couple of birthday cards  in a style that is totally out my comfort zone. The recipients are very girly and love bling/shoes etc.
So I used some of my Sue Wilson dies and the Tattered Lace shoe die, borrowed from my mammy x
 Sue's dies cut so well and I was delighted with the way in which you can layer them.

 I just love these butterflies and applied some Ranger Stickles  in Crystal for that added bling
A little book was made to go inside the pocket that the focal 50 sits on enabling my colleagues to add their own message.
 Stickles were also applied to the blue design but I have not quite captured it in photographs taken.
I also gave in to my urge to use some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges :-)
 The recipients were over the moon with their cards and I did enjoy making them  but its back to getting messy with paints and inks for me !!!!

Sending huge hugs xxxx
