The Card Concept #65 Fresh & Bold

A card for The Card Concept 
I was inspired by the pink and orange on the all white bed for my CAS card.  Also, the swirly pattern on the pillows.

PTI's Garden Gild Cover plate sponged with CP's New Party Collection Inks.  They were great for sponging. 
PTI's Keep It Simple Praying for You.

Addicted to Stamps & More #225

It is so nice to have some new challenges besides Christmas and winter ones.  
When I saw ATSM I immediately thought of butterflies.  Love that when it happens.

I also got the rest of Catherine Pooler's party collection inks yesterday and could hardly wait to use them.  They are simply amazing.  One time stamping to get these bright images.  Love them.
And this was on Linen paper which is sometimes hard to get a good image the first time.  I used PTI's Butterfly Dreams one of their oldies and Swoosh sentiment.  The flowers are from CP's Amazing Floral.
Some PPP sequins and Perlen Pen for the middle of flowers and butterflies.  Yeah, less than an hour to come up with this and finish it without having to start over.  That is unheard of for me.

Here is the inspiration photo.

Darnell's NBUS #8 & Just Us Girls #376

I love when a technique I have been wanting to try turns up on a challenge.  I had just seen this technique on Nancy's Blog  and knew I wanted to try it.  I rarely use my color pencils or kraft paper so thought this was perfect. 

 Isn't her card beautiful?
And of course we all have never before used schtuff.

 Also entering this on JUGS which Nancy is a designer on.

MFT Sketched Blooms - never used stamp set colored with my Prism pencils.

Merry Monday # 231 Reindeer

This week Colleen wants us to use a reindeer on our card.  This took me quite awhile to finish this.  
I masked the images and then colored with Copics.  I then did the background with Copics and really wasn't that happy with it.  I added some embossing paste for the snowflakes.  Originally, I was going to sponge on the night sky but that didn't work either.  I wasn't about to redo the masking and coloring so this is it.  Why do they not turn out the way you have them pictured in your head?
