Birthday and Mother's Day Celebrations

There are several cards being posted today (guess I'm trying to catch up for the past year.)  Lately I have been using a lot of Graphic 45 paper, glitter paper, tulle, rhinestones, and more glitter as well as plenty of chipboard.  A few years ago, I purchased several packages of SU chipboard and never really found a good way to add them to cards.  But, Happy Hour Crafts (HHC) has inspired me to dig out the chipboard and you can see an example of one on the "Loca" birthday card made for a granddaughter.  The number 5 was used for the 50th birthday card, so using the negative circle, I used spray adhesive and applied red glitter to it.  A yellow balloon was placed below the chipboard to give a contrasting look to the circle.  The image is a digi one (Sassy Patsy) that caught my eye last year, or maybe earlier; who knows where time flies especially in my case :-)  Copic markers were used for skin tones and for some of the "vintage" looking dresses.  A stick pin from Maya Road was glued and glittered (another inspiring idea from the HHC friends.) The "Mom" letters were cut from glitter foam using the Cuttlebug and the black tulle with hot pink glitter added was an idea given by Prissy Conrad last Saturday at the Happy Hour Crafts workshop, thanks, Prissy!  There is plenty of glitter and lots of tulle, so enjoy the view and thank you for stopping and taking a look today.
