Flowers & Flutterbys

For this little card, I used 2 Meljen's digis. I created the background on my computer with a Meljen's flower and then colored the flowers with my ProMarkers. The sentiment is from Ginger's House. If you haven't visited her blog yet, please do. She has oodles of sentiments to share.

Papers: I made the background paper with a flower image from Meljen's. The rest is from my stash.
Colors: ProMarker Cerise, Baby Pink, Lavender, Purple, Meadow Green, Apple, Arctic Blue

Owl Luv Wooo

I was very excited to find the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week. What a fun way to go for a challenge. An Etsy store is chosen for you to go and find inspiration. You choose a product or two and design your card from that. This week's store is Claylicious. They have some great handmade pottery and owls that are adorable. It gave me a chance to use this owl from Dragonsmoore: Spyder's Other Corner and this sketch from Sketch Saturday.

The images I chose were this set of green owls and this dish which inspired the embossing.

Etsy Inspired Challenge: #127 Claylicious
Sketch Saturday: #143
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge: Embossing and/or Paper Piecing

Happy Birthday Mouse

Wanted to get this one up today as well. The stamp and sentiment are both from Meljen's. I seem to be stuck on the pink and brown color combo today.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Meljen's: Happy Birthday
The Shabby Tearoom: Buttons and Bows

Dottie from Bugaboo

I just recently purchased my first Letraset Promarkers. I've been practicing with them for about a week and decided it was time to put a card together. I also purchased a Big Shot and am using it for the first time as well. The stamp is Dottie from Bugaboo and the sentiment is a freebie from Meljen's. The brads in the top corner are green rhinestone brads.

The picture doesn't seem to show the colors as vividly as they are in real life. I'll have to research taking better pictures. I'll try to post a better photo later. If anyone has any suggestions, please share.
