Hello friends! I've had this darling little critter on my desk for quite some time just waiting for me to color it up and make a card. The Addicted To Stamps Challenge #2 - "Make Your Mark" is to use markers on our creations so it was the perfect time for me to pull out my Copic markers and start coloring. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #46 for my layout - which I flipped the orientation of for my card (see below). I am also participating in the Divas By Design Challenge 46 - Flowers (use them in the image, in the paper, as an embellishment, etc.) and Our Creative Corner Challenge - Bling Bling and an Item from Nature (use rhinestones, stickles, glitter, etc along with items found in nature such as plants or animals).
Of course you can see the flowers in the stamped image, but did you also notice the little flowers in the DSP background layer and on the embossed strip? For the Bling on my card I added lots of pearls and used Copic spicas glitter pens on the flowers, leaves, bees, heart on the envelope, grass, ladybug and watering can - it doesn't show up very well in the pictures try as I might, but here's a close up (maybe you can make it out a little, it's really nice in real life).
I'm bushed from a busy weekend and ready to hit the hay, so... guess that's it for tonight :o) Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - I'm sure glad that you did. Hope you liked today's card. Til next time - Hugs!!
Supplies: Cardstock - Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Poppy Parade and Whisper White (all from Stampin UP!). DSP - Patio Party (SU). Stamp - from Penny Black, colored with Copic markers and spica glitter pens. I colored only the words from one of the stamps in the Easy Events set (SU) to make my sentiment and then used the Bitty Banners framelits die (SU) for the flagged end. I used the Delicates Design Folder for the textured embossed strip (SU).
