Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Bizzy Bec's February Anything Goes Challenge

{Butterfly Challenge on Vellum below or - here!
and WOYWW #400 is Here!!}

Hullo one and all, tis time yet again for another "ANYTHING GOES" challenge over at Bizzy Bec's for the month of February! Join in, please do, you just might win the prize of stamp or a die !!
There was a very special couple who recently announced their engagement and so collected together some favourite wedding/ engagement cardstock and dies .... this card like many came into my head quickly but took a bit longer to make.
Engagement card made with:
Spellbinder Scalloped Borderablities Die
Impression Obsession - Heart of Hearts Die
Similar card to 6 x6 Ivory Cardstock 
Glitter similar to Stampendous glitter and embossing powder set
Embossing Folder Cuttlebug Love set ( Discontinued)
Some clear Bling to finish it off! (NOTE: it's not white card, pale rose pink frosted card) 😊
My desk ten days ago now, for WOYWW, when hiding the card being made at this stage. You can however see the die used for the greeting (back middle), and some loose, small hearts from heart of hearts die (near envelope at top). Will save them for a shaker card.
The true beauty of this card isn't caught by the camera - from the very soft rose pink sheen on the frosted cardstock, to the glittery shine behind the mini hearts dies. I used the shimmery glitter with glossy accents. The Jac double sided paper I used first didn't have enough of the glitter on it for my liking. So squeezed over top of it some Glossy Accents, poured over the glitter and waited it to dry.
Then rubbed off excess when when and truly set. I was really happy then.

I also glued the extra heart inserts into the heart Die with the Glossy Accents too. The greeting was a digital sentiment printed on my inkjet printer then embossed with silver embossing powder.
If it's glossy card then use embossing buddy (see here how to make it, actually prefer them to my bought one) before printing and have EP ready to sprinkle when it comes out of printed, before ink dries. I love how well it fitted with Die from SB Divine Eloquence ..

I did do it in a Word doc. to make sure it fitted, that's the beauty of digis.
Well, that's it for today... dont forget to pop over and join in Bec's Anything Goes February Anything Goes Challenge challenge .. you might win the prize :D
May the LORD bless you and those you love, wherever you might be. 
Thanks so much for popping over for a peek and a chat.
