Another Challenge Card

So, I am getting hooked on these challenges!  How fun!

I used Spellbinders Flowers Impressabilities to emboss the pink which is hard to see.  I tore the edges with my fiskars edger.  Used ribbon from American Craft.  Of course, used a Bugaboo stamp.  Colored the digi with Copic markers.  Used Stickles cotton candy to add some shimmer to the image.  I used white flock on the wings to add some texture.

This card is for the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant:  1 image, 2 dies and 3 embellishments.
Crafty HOs' Challenge:  use pastels in your creation
One Stitch at a Time:  torn, distressed or shabby
Simple Doodles:  inspire others
Our Creative Corner:  use bows
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge:  use buttons

Catch the Bug Challenge!

Bugaboo stamps has a blog hop going on right now!  First stop is at Jodie's and you follow from their to the final destination of the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog where you can submit your card that includes a bug in some form or fashion.  I love to use yellow and black--these colors look so good together.

I used one of the new digi's from the Bugaboo Shop.  The one in the photo is actually the freebie of the week.  I used a MS punch for the lady bugs and an EK success border punch for the edge and flowers.  Used Copic markers to color the digi.  There are multiple ways to win prizes including a scrambled phrase.  Check it out!

Dare to be Sassy Thursday #14 Challenge

So Sassy Studio Designs is having a challenge with the following sketch:
I used the freebie digi and played with my new watercolor pencils.  This was a new technique for me to use for coloring a digi.  The background paper was Deja Views blue raspberry printed papers.  I used a cuttlebug border embossing template to add a little more detail.  I used Tattered Angels coffee shop glimmer mist to ad some shimmer to the brown border.  I used Jim Holtz distress ink (brushed corduroy) to try and distress the edges some.
