Happy 50th Birthday and Just Because

These are my entries for the Saturday Paper Ala Mode challenge over at The Outlawz. This challenge was for silver, gold or sparkly. I decided to enter two cards into this challenge.

This first card is for my dearest cousin's 50th birthday next month. This was created using Spellbinder's cut, tuck and fold die. I used Not Quite Navy card stock from Stampin' Up on top of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut strips of the same card stock and pieced them into a mini weave. The happy birthday stamp is also from Stampin' Up. I then used little sparkly stickers for all of the bling on the die. I used bling sticker strips in between the strips. The 50 is silver metal numerals.

This second card was created on my Silhouette Cameo. The cut is actually a card itself, but I wanted to use it as a frame instead, so I cut the other piece off and then mounted it on a deeper purple card stock. There is a lot of bling on this card, but the picture doesn't do it justice. The flowers have purple glitter on them and purple crystals and lavender pearls. The card has lavender pearls, purple pearls and clear crystals.
