Just Add Ink challenge # 280 - Just add glimmer!

I'm rearranging my craft room so it is in a bit of a mess right now, but when I saw the JAI challenge this week I had to clear a space and get out the glitter paper. Now finding that paper was a bit of a mission in itself!

I just loved Wonder Woman as a kid and have been trying on outfits for a fancy dress party, one of which was a Wonder woman costume, so that's where the inspiration for this card came from.  I only used die cuts for the stars the rest I drew free hand and cut out.

Weddings - JAI Challenge #263

You might notice I have not posted for quite some time.  I've had a busy 6 months and didn't hardly sit at the table in my craft room.  Now I have a bit of time to card so thought I wonder what this weeks JAI challenge is.. Just Add.....Weddings!  

Yeh I love weddings.  A good friend and colleague  of ours was married a few months ago.  I had been asked to make a big card for us all to sign.  I was very pleased with it but alas I didn't take a photograph so can't show it to you.  I've made this similar one in normal card size for the JAI challenge.

I embossed with white on the dress and shirt for detail.  I sorry I don't know where I got the template for this card from 

I thought I might as well use this opportunity to show you the table runners Martine and Omid asked me to make for their wedding.  These are flowers made from coffee filter flowers.  They are so easy and fun  to make.  I got the idea from here.  I glued them on with my glue gun.

The runners and flowers hung over the edge of each table.

This is the front of the bridal table.

And of course the back that the bride and groom see have to look good too.  

Here they all are with over 100 flowers.
