Papaya Collage and More

It is a sketch challenge at Off the Rails this week. I got a bit carried away and ended up using 4 different stamps sets for this card. It was a bit fiddly cutting all the images out, but worth the extra effort.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Papaya collage, fine feathers, papillion potpourri and itty bitty banners
Card: Island indigo, pistachio pudding, crumb cake, very vanilla, versamark and gold
Ink: gold encore, island indigo, pistachio pudding and soft suede
Accessories: Venetian romance dsp, delicate dollies sizzlits, bitty banners sizzlits, self adhesive pearls, crumb cake seam binding ribbon, gold embossing powder

Something Different

Next year I am turning 50! Not sure where all the years went, but it is happening and if I want to celebrate in style I have to start saving. This is a $3 tin from red dot that I have decorated. It can't be opened except with a can opener so what goes in has to stay there. I plan to throw all my gold coins and a few small notes, plus what I make selling off my retired stamp sets.

Project recipe
Sweet sorbet dsp, gold embossed vellum, black and gold card stock, spiral die, pansy punch and assorted buttons, brads and rhinestones
