Inspiration in the 'Mirror'

If you haven't been able to tell, I am a bit obsessed right now with 'shiny' mirror cardstock. I love the look you get using unexpected themes. I was trying to think where I had seen this technique used recently, and then after Julie over at Huxter's House in the UK stopped by (you may remember she was one the recent blog candy winners of those cool high heel shoes), it dawned on me that she has been doing some awesome creative things with mirror card, the 'bug' and a variety of embossing folders.

So I went from cute little Holiday gift tags to an elegant Congratulations card to a Fall-themed all occasion card. It's been fun to see what comes to mind as I start on a new theme.

Of course, I placed these cards in my Etsy store, so hope you will take a quick look.

Hope you had a great Monday! Look forward to visiting with you again tomorrow.

Julie, these cards are so beautiful. I love that mirror element too, and that cute, cute baby heart in the center of the flower! Love it! Hugs, Paulette :o)
