Sugar Bowl Challenge #23

Last minute post again for the Sugar Bowl Challenge #23. I used a Gorjuss Girl image that I actually just ordered... SO excited! Since they are from the UK, I couldn't order just one. I can't wait for them to come!

Here is the sketch:

Here is the inside:
I decided I wanted to make a black and white card using the sketch from this challenge. I used Copic markers, ribbon from Michael's, rinestones from Basic K, and the sentiment is Stem Sayings from Stampin Up. The paper on the very bottom actually has a velvety texture, not sure if you can tell that from the picture. The gray circle behind the main image is embossed from a Cuttlebug folder through the Sizzix machine. Inside, the hearts are from the Love You Much set by Stampin Up. The edges on the bottom are punched with an EK success edge puncher. I used Diamond Stickles throughout the project.

First Entry for Your Next Stamp!

I was so excited to use this super cute image from Your Next Stamp for their most recent challenge. Their challenge #3 is to make a Christmas card without using green or red. This was way harder than I thought, the DT made it look so easy! Anyways, here is my entry!

This image originally had skates, but I did not include them so I didn't have to create a skating scene. Fiona and the tree were really fun to color!

MMSC #26 and Just Magnolia

Here is a simple thank you card I made for the Midnight Madness Challenge #26. There was a sketch provided and I used an Edwin stamp. I used Copic markers to color him in and distressed the edges all around and inked it with Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up. The challenge for Just Magnolia is distressing!

Here is the sketch:

I did finish out the inside, but wrote my message in it before I took the pictures, so I will not display it this time. Thanks for stopping by!
