Good Luck! - Cardabilities #104

Time has gone by so fast and I can't believe this is my last post for Cardabilities. It has been a pleasure to work with such amazing and talented designers. Karan's sketches as you all know are so nice to work with and it has been a great honor to be part of her team. Thank you teammates and thank you Karan for having me.

The new sketch is up today and I know you'll be inspired by it!

Spellbinders: Rose Creations, Carnation Creations, A2 Matting Basics A, Delicate Doilies,
Classic Edges Two, Classic Decorative Inserts Three.

Docrafts Xcut: Leafy Flourishes
Sin City Stamps: Butterfly Mask 
Graciellie Design Paper - Keys & Roses 
Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Embossing.
Inkadinkado embossing powder in Silver

Merletto pearls
Other generic materials
Cardstocks: Leather textured in soft pink, off white and light green. Linen in white. Metallic in pink.
Homemade paste

2" one sided lace

This is a shabby chic card with lots of layers. The main patterned layer was wet and distressed letting show some lace on the background. Also I used some beautiful butterfly masks to stencil, using homemade paste. After that was done, I added the central layers and handmade flowers. The "Good Luck" Spanish sentiment was heat embossed in silver.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card for today and that you feel inspired to join our challenge at Cardabilities. I send a big hug to my fabulous teammates. Know that I am very thankful for the great friends I've made and for the opportunity I was given. Thanks a bunch!

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.
