FF Beauty Within

Yea Friday! I am so excited to finally start to sit down a bit. This week has been busy on to of busy, this weekend is going to be a little slower. The twins birthday party was awesome this week and they had so much fun. Celeberating our anniversary this weekend and a close friend of ours is having his send off party for another tour in Iraq this weekend. Bitter sweet I guess this weekend is going to be. Onto the cards....
Laura is bringing us today's Friday Focus over on Flourishes blog. We are using the set Beauty Within today but with a twist. This stamp set is created to use with 2 specific spellbinders label 13 and 11. Did you know that this set is versatile without the spellbinders and it can also be used with other spellbinders if you are creative with them? To prove it the DT has created some fantastic creations to show you. You can check out the FLLC Gallery over on the Blog too!
My first card used the Mojo Sketch 139 with the Iris image in the set. I have used the Spellbinders circles to cut out my image and colored with the copics. The dp I used is the MB Spearmint that I need to order more of, I am just about out. I love this paper pack. hee hee A little added sparkle to the outer circle and the Iris and its done.

My next card is a little more vibrant. I did not use any spellbinders on this card. I simply stamped the image back to back and used pearl brads to seperate them. I cut out some of the flowers and popped them up, I got this idea from a few of the Spellbiners girls. Very clever those girls are! ;0)


Here is a side view photo of the card to see the flowers popped up. They each have a little bit of sparkle added to them, but very subtle. I sent this card to Pat aka patsmethers this week for her anniversary with Bubba. I know she had a fabulous day with hubby!

Now don't miss what the girls have created with the focus today!
