Thank you again for your kind words! Some of those cards were really a stretch for me. The bow on the Simply Susan card is what I call a "cheating" bow. I glued 2 ends together in the middle then wrapped another piece around the front and then folded a piece and glued it on the back for the tails. I've bought a couple of different bow makers, but they are all difficult. The bee card is Color Me paper and I used Hero Arts neon inks. Some of the color did smudge but I used sponge daubers and the pointed make up qtips to color.
Thanks for your wonderful comments on my cards. The one you asked about - the black paper is glimmer paper which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder using one of the stamps in the Noteworthy set. The other stamps I heat embossed with white powder. I'm so glad you liked that card - I wasn't sure about it as I struggle with collage type cards. If that didn't answer your question, let me know!
