A speedy, sparkly birthday card....

I needed to do a quick card for an overseas friend so decided to play along with the Speed Craft girls!
This card took me 14 mins and 39 seconds (cutting it fine!) - although I confess the stickles was not dry in that time. The theme is sparkle and shine - not excessive on mine but some stickles and lovely rhinestones.

The inspiration for this card came from another Stampin Up demo - sorry I saw the card but don't know who made it! I have used different stamps and a different layout but some of the elements and the colour scheme are cased.

I had such fun I made another one:

  5. Beautiful cards Nikki! I love the black book pages as a backdrop, it goes so well with the blue tones! Love those flowers too! hugs :)

  6. Wow Nikki, such a beautiful card and how cool for doing this in less than 15 mins. I think as artists we can do more in less time if we put our minds to it xx

  7. Wow Nikki, both cards are beautiful - it is amazing what you can create in that amount of time - I say you, because I could never do it, much as I would love to! Perhaps I should try .... Anne xx

  9. These are charming, Nikki - I adore the stamping on the book text and the delicate baby blues. And the butterflies on the ribbon work beautifully as a dimensional embellishment.
