Dreamy cards with Iwona Palamountain

Hello peeps! It's time to get Glitzy again :)
Some of you might have noticed, that this year we are introducing a brand new feature on the Glitz Design blog, that being a "FOCUS", an inspiration given to all of us to be the starting point of our next creation.
If you design something inspired with the Focus, you are eligible to enter our monthly challenge. The Design Team is showing you their unique takes on the inspiration, throughout the month, to help your creative juices going.

Here's the beautiful photo:
Bear in mind, that your project doesn't have to be of wintry theme. There's plenty to be inspired with here - the colours, textures, even the layout!
Hence the layout is what I was really taken with in the first place - see my card below? :)
Then came the colours (the papers from Dance In Sunshine immediately came to mind), and I even let the dimension from the photo guide me.

Glitz Design "Dance In Sunshine" papers: Damask, Polka
Glitz Design "Dance In Sunshine" Clear Stamps
Glitz Design "Dance In Sunshine" Peek-A-Boo
Glitz Design "Dance In Sunshine" Epoxy Words
Glitz Design "Dance In Sunshine" Glitzers

Other: cardstock: embossed white card, yellow; pearls: AnnaBelle Stamps; ink: Versafine (Onyx Black)

For the second card, I interpreted the layout a little differently, and gave it a bolder look. There's still yellow there (this time I was playing with the Vintage Blue collection), but I replaced the cool green with navy blue. I let the banner play the role of the upper trim, and the lace/tulle combo, replace the garland under the mirror.

Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" papers: Motif, Rose
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Titles Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Journaling Cardstock Stickers
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Trim
Glitz Design "Vintage Blue" Epoxy Words

Other: cardstock: white, black; string; QuicKutz embossing folder (Diamonds & Dots)

Now it's your turn, to show us how you got inspired! See you next time, for more glitzy goodness :)
Iwona (Chupa)
