The Sirens Were Blaring...

 And I was busy making cards.  The photo above shows all and below more details on each.
 "We Sparkle" as friends.  This is an Inky Antics stamp that shows two friends as angels.  It made me think of friends that support each other through thick and thin, always there when needed, even if just for a hug.  I used Stampin Up markers for the coloring of the image along with Spicas to add the "sparkle".  The bottom white cardstock was spritzed with a SU marker.  My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite paper lines and both patterned pieces come from "It's My Party" line.  The ribbon, bling, lettering, and button all from my drawers of bits and pieces that someday might come in useful.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show all the sparkle this card actually has incorporated.
 "Just Because" uses white cardstock with inked edges of Baby Blue Versa Color.  I have always loved the ripping of paper and so did so with the patterned paper from Fancy Pants and the white for the sentiment.  Again both were inked with the same color in Versa Color.  The image is Hero Arts Medley embossed with Judi-Kins White Diamond Embossing Powder.  From there the flowers were hand-painted with Shimmerz Pearlz blue and Perfect Pearls in Perfect Copper and Perfect Gold.  The centers of each flower each with various rhinestones.  Ribbon was white to make the flower in the upper-right corner with a Gluber then spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - color Pantina with the larger rhinestone added to its center and a matching one in the opposite corner.  "Just Because..." sentiment was embossed on white cardstock using ZING! Embossing Powder - color Wake.
