More Photo cards

Hi folks!
Here are a couple of photo cards I made for my beautiful niece who turns 15 this week. She is very special to me as she was a babe in arms at my wedding! Looks like I'll be making family cards in 'twos' from now on as mum always says 'can you make one for me too' :oD
You are not going to believe this but I actually used some shocking pink holographic sticky back plastic on the card above... looks cool framing the photo. I stamped the swirls with glue and sprinkled on glitter (v. sparkly in real life) I used my Dreamboat Sizzix font to cut the letters from Pink Glitterboard. I cut the numbers from Black cards and covered with black glitter.
I'm not really into shiny paper but I thought this rainbow paper was too good a match for Charley' s eyeshadow not to use. Very simple card. Just used my Fiskars border punch on the rainbow paper. I used a flower punch and yellow glitterboard for the flower. The numbers are cut from Funky Foam and using my 'London' Go Kreate alphabet dies. The letters are again, from Funky Foam (ooooo I love that stuff) and this time I used A Sizzix alphabet 'Nouveau'.
I'm giving Mum the choice of which one to send.....I wonder whaich one she'll choose??
Ciao for now!

And these two are stunning too. I especially lOVE the first one, what a fantastic picture and all the details are just amazing. You should work in the advertisment world, this looks so professional!! I'm sure she'll love them both (and her mum too :) ).
