Sparkle N Sprinkle's February 2013 Blog Hop

If you found your way here by way of Brigita, awesome. If not, please click HERE to get started at the beginning of the hop.  And thank you so much for joining us!

Monochromatic is this month's theme. And I have 2 cards to share with you.

This card using a variety of pinks, has an Asian feel to it. 

With the symbols at the bottom (Chinese) Hope, and the flowers from Stamp Set 177 Asian 2 - Japanese Lady, along with the beautiful pink colors, this card could certainly brighten someone's day.

Click HERE for instructions to make this card.






Next, is a very vintage Art Deco style card - straight from the 1920's. Isabelle (Stamp Set 183, Hat Ladies - Danielle) is one of my favorite stamps. Such elegance.

Her dress and hat are covered in Gold glitter, and her shawl is in Moonrise tinsel glitter.

  17. Both your cards are very distinctive Karalee. The gold edging on the fan is great. The layout on the pink card is perfect. And the gold embossed letters look beautiful.
    The second card really has a nice look to it with the black corner lines and pearls. The white tinsel on her stole against her gold dress is gorgeous.
    Well done.

  29. My favorite card was the Asian-themed card. I liked the geometric design of the card, and I felt it was a good example of the mono-chromatic theme. I thought it was very clever to use the flowers inside the fan. The flowers added a distinct dimension for the card--very pretty.
