I recently ordered some new dies and other goodies from The Cat's Pajamas! Last week I was the randomly chosen weekly winner, so I got 10$ in credit, plus they've had some great sales over there lately! I got 3 new dies in the mail, the scalloped border, the pennant die (finally you won't have to listen to me whine anymore about how I don't have one!;) and that lovely snowflake die. I used them all on these 2 cards, the challenge was to make something SHINY!! :)
So this first card with PJ is pretty fun! I added a border on the right using a glittery paper & the scalloped border die. Used lots of rhinestones, even highlighting the pattern in the paper with teeny little rhinestones. You like? :) PJ is paper pieced from a scrap of kraft plaid paper and I even gave him rhinestone buttons. He's holding a flag made from the new mini pennant in the set, I stamped the sentiment on there.
Well that's it for me right now! I've got some more goodies to show you in the upcoming days, so stay tuned! :)
