Glitterbabe's Challenge!

Hello and happy Thursday! Today is the second challenge going on over at Glitterbabe's Challenge Blog! Wow, we had lots of very, very nice cards entered into the challenge, full of sparkle ...and the winner is going to be announced today so be sure to head on over and see if it was you!!! This weeks challenge is a color challenge...using orange, pink and turquoise....and I used Glitterbabe's Flamingo image. I matted my card first with orange and turquoise (shhhhh I know it is really light blue but it was the closest i could come!) glitter paper...trying to portray the sky at sunset and the water. The image is printed out on acetate and colored the back of the image with copics....I am not really sure I like this technique but was intrigued enough to try it...for sure there is plenty of sparkle on this of Glitterbabe's biggest requirement! Be sure to stop on over to see us at the challenge blog...the rest of the DT has some really awesome cards as well to show off! I hope you have a blessed day today and thanks for stopping in to see me!

Just for You Vellum Card

Hello again! Whew is it warm where you are? Really hot and humid here but IS July and I live in the middle of corn country so what should I expect huh? Well I hope my card is refreshing at least! Today's card is done in vellum...heavy weight (48lbs). My image is from the Fancy Flowers collection at Squigglefly. I printed it on the vellum and then flipped over the vellum to make my design. The flower itself is not colored at is the pink bacground paper showing through...the leaves I colored with copics. My corners were cut with the SU corner punch. I really am liking working with gives me a feel of elegance...hope you like! Thanks bunches for stopping in today...hope to see you again soon. I am off to see each of you later on today!

Wind Beneath My Wings

Today is our first challenge as part of the new Squigglefly DT. Todays challenge at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog is such an awesome one!! We were able to do whatever Squigglefly image we wanted to! Be sure to come check out all the awesome cards that the other DT members created for this challenge and play along with us! There are always prizes! I chose the butterfly from the Fancy Flowers collection. Colored it with copics and added some glitter using a Sakura Stardust pen. The sentiment was computer generated in Photoshop...thought it was perfect to go with the image.
Of course you can tell I used my circle nesties to mat my image..and i used a corner punch to create some interest in the corners. I love how it turned out. Hope you are having an awesome day...we will be spending some time with our kids tonight. I am off to see each of you...have to catch up on what is going on in your world! Thanks for stopping in to see me today!
