A Card and an Altered Composition Book

I made this little card with K& Company paper and some other scraps. The chipboard frame is painted Antique Ivory, then sprayed with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels), then sprinkled with a little glitter. The chipboard button is from Jenni Bowlin.
I altered this composition book to give as a gift to a sweet college student at our church. I used Basic Grey paper and "Cherish" sticker, flourish stamps and some rhinestones.
Have a great day!

Thinking of you....

I've been making lots of cards lately and finishing up my huge painting project. This first card was made using K & Company Margo paper, Tattered Angels Butterfly Framed Font, and a Jenni Bowlin vintage chipboard button. I sprayed the butterfly with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist. This card has a vintage feel to it, and it's one of my favorites!
This card is made with K & Company Wild Saffron Paper, Martha Stewart twill tape, and a Martha Stewart border punch. I also added some bling with the little gold rhinestones. This last card is made with K & Company's Peabody Scrap Pad, a Tattered Angel's Framed Font, a Prima flower and some sweet little pearls. I picked up the lace from a thrift store. The frame is sprayed with Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. Last, but not least, I've just finished painting the wall sections between these china cabinet shelves. This is a built-in china cabinet, so the shelves are not removable, which made this job very challenging, especially when you wear bifocals!!
