Card Challenge for Scrap Africa challenge - 29

Hello and welcome to my blog where today I'm hosting
Scrap Africa challenge 29
The challenge it to create two cards, one for a male and one for a female.
It can be for any occasion you like and you have until 
the end of the month to join in at 
I'd love you to pop across and see the beautiful cards
created by the DT and the Guest Designers
I chose scraps of blue and cream cardstock to create the feminine card
A great opportunity to test drive a new spellbinder die 
The stamp is by Hero Arts
embossed with Wow white pearl embossing powder
A few Prima flowers and "Say it with crystals"
The easel card could be for any occasion
Father's Day, Birthday or Anniversary 
I love this paper collection from Prima - Cartographer
Spellbinders "Sprightly sprockets" cut the dies
I finished off with a name plate by Kaisercraft
A bit of stitching, punching and misting

Memories chipboard is by Scrapmatts
It holds the easel card open for display

I had fun making the cards, and it's always lovely to have a couple on hand. 

Thanks for calling in to say hello
and for any comments you may care to leave
They bring a smile to my face
