A Trio Inspired by Pretty Things....The Card Concept Challenge #64~Pretty Things, Happy Little Stampers January CAS Challenge~Stencil

Hello!

The dust bunnies are rapidly multiplying along the baseboards and behind doors, my teensy crafting zone (kitchen counter between the sink and fridge) is a mess, crafting stuff has spilled out on the kitchen table...The messages are clear: someone needs to tidy this place up! Where is my husband? *grin* Actually, I like cleaning (most of the time....), so that's on today's agenda.

Before I go, however, (and before I forget and links close....). a trio of clean and layered cards to share inspired by the loveliness at The Card Concept Challenge #64~Pretty Things


Be warned: I am totally, utterly and completely in LOVE with Concord and 9th's Heart Strings die and Heart Smiles stamp sets.  You'll be seeing a number of cards using these....a. number!  Valentine's Day is drawing near, after all....

Anyway, here's Card 1 (gold and shimmery pink)


and Card 2 (polka dots and shimmer gold card stock...

which you can see a bit better here...)


Card 3  is a nod to the flowers in the photo...peony stencil from STAMPlorations,  Hello from W&W and Delicata Gold Ink splatters.  Shimmers in real life...


Heading to Happy Little Stampers January CAS Challenge~Stencil with this one:
