Low Key Night - good for OWH

Well, we are T-13 to baby!!  Little bit of a scare last night but today my daughter, soon to be known as Mommy, is still bakin' a baby boy.  I need to be ready to go at a moment's notice.  I reluctantly cancelled some plans for this evening to tidy the house, get laundry ready - all those things you need to do to leave home for a good week at least.
Of course, that meant I would spend at least some time in my craft room.  I don't want to start a big project like a mini so I thought I would work on a few cards for OWH.  The box now has nine new cards each with a pretty different feel.  I leafed through a stamping magazine til I saw something I liked and dug through my goodies to find the right paper or stamp to recreate it.

Some My Mind's Eye papers and a pretty Stampin Up image left by buddy, Lori.

Next, some lovely layers where I tried to show case another Stampin Up image, random solids and a little it of echo park paper.  This one I embossed.

 Purple and spring time!!  Background is stamped with a script in versa mark with perfect pearls brushed on.  I also spritzed on a bit of vanilla smooch to make it shimmer.  This purple seam binding came to me in a pack of ribbon I bought on etsy from The paper bag lady.  I paid 5 dollars for 15 generous yards of mixed ribbon.  Every one she sent was a keeper!
 This last one is a showcase of paper.  The websters pages sheet shown here didn't need much at all.  I added a bit more with a border punch and inked paper flowers to make the inside feel pretty, too.
