A Few Cards

Hello there all you lovely people of Blog land,
All the kiddies are back to school today and it is so quiet in the house it's a little lonely :( .
I'm off to work shortly, I have a new job working in a friends Cafe'/bakery for a few hours today and Friday so I thought I would pop these cards onto my blog before I left. These aren't for any challenges I fell in love with this paper and just brought it, as you do. In my excitement in using this paper I have cut off the makers name and forgot to keep it, sorry. It's just gorgeous it has glitter weaved all though the rose pattern, trust me it's yummo.
I have used leather textured coffee coloured card stock from my stash (on both cards) and the gold letters are also from my stash. On the wedding card I have given it an acetate cover which I then decorated with some glittered hearts. I also popped a few on the inside, These were done using a craft punch, jac paper and Jones Tones glitter. I have keep them both simple so the rose paper stands out. Oops almost forgot the ribbon is by Wrights and has a shimmer effect to itand the rhinestones by Kaisercraft.
Well, it's that time I'm off to work keep you fingers crossed for me.
Bye for now
