Enjoy the sweet moments


The ever amazing Suzanne Dean challenged us to create a monochromatic card/image for our Color Me Creative Challenge groups bi-monthly challenges........open to everyone. This was my first time participating cuz ya know.....life just has a way of getting in the way of my crafting time. LOL

Anywho...........I only used Copic "R's" to create this card.........hence her rather reddish face or is she blushing.....LOL This was my first time ever doing a monochromatic card so it was a bit challenging but I think it came out alright. The card is actually prettier IRL (in real life). I'm not the greatest photographer.....hahaha.

This cute little Tilda image called "Baking Tilda" can be found at Diana's Magnolia-licious store. I used my little Bow-Easy to make the cute little bow. The sentiment was computer generated & thought up by little ol' me. LOL Then I punched it out with my Marvy Uchida scalloped oval punch. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch with a little added bling. The swirlie blings are Recollections. I used my Nesties "Curved Rectangles" to cut around my image. And my handy dandy Tim Holtz distressing tool (love that thang). And lastly......I think.......I used the lattice EK punch to make the little strip behind my image.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges........
Papertake Weekly: Sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges: Bling
Paper Sundaes: Things with Wings
Totally Tilda Challenge Blog: Glitter & Sparkle
Just Magnolia Challenge Blog: Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown: Punches
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge: Swirly Swirls

Thanks for looking & I would love to hear what you think. Have a FABulous weekend! TGIF

Huggies & Blessings ~♥♥♥~
