Lets Play Sports

This is my attempt at making a card using a Magnolia sports image. Magnolia-licious Highlites is having a sports challenge and I though I would give it a try. I won this wonderful Tilda Tennis stamp a couple of weeks ago from Stamp And Create and I finally got the chance to ink it up. I used copics to color the image; although its a little dark I still like how the hair turned out. This is the third image I've ever colored using copics and as you can see I still need a lot of practice on which colors to blend. The ribbon comes from Crafty Ribbons, I won it in their weekly Friday Freebie draw about 2 weeks ago. Their ribbon and buttons are simply lovely and I do suggest that you check them out.  I used the Fiskars Jester border punch to make the sun in the corner, I think it adds a nice touch. Now, on to my card. I'm not one for long posts cause I'm extremely terrible at that.

Masculine Card and Freebie

Hey there peeps, its been a little over 2 weeks since my last post, time sure does fly. Wish I had more time one my hands to post more often. 
So I sat down yesterday to make a masculine birthday card. I think it turned out OK. The colors I chose makes it look a little Christmas-y but that was so not my intentions. The image comes from the lovely Anne Fenton. She is super talented and has a freebie on her blog every Thursday, I love her work and her images are adorable. You should definitely check her work out. The sketch come from Priscilla Styles. They have a sketch challenge going on right now and since I'm just oh so terrible with sketches I decide to try out that one.
I colored the image using the copics that Audrey sent me. I love working with them cause its a real treat compared to pencil crayons. I looked through the sentiment folder in my computer to see if I had a sentiment that would fit to this card and when I didn't find one I got the weird idea of making one. I looked through Google images to see if I could find a circle flame and race car. I used photo shop to edit the two together and added a sentiment in the middle. I think it turned out great. If any of you would like to have it to use on your card the help yourself to it at the bottom of this post.

I would like to enter this card into the current challenges:
  1. Crop Stop - Masculine Birthday Card
  2. Truly Madly Crafty Challenges - 5 embellishments (4 buttons, 1 ribbon)
  3. Bearly Mine Challenges - Anything Goes

Birthday card and Exciting giveaway

Happy Birthday to me!!! Well I just had to say it. I am now officially 25 years old and about time too. Time sure does fly. 
So I got to making some cards in the last couple of days and on e just so happens to be a Birthday card that I made for my mother. She absolutely loved it and so did I. The turn-out was wonderful. I especially love the color combo and design. The color combination idea comes from Nancy's card over at CropStop Challenge Blog. They are celebrating National Scrapbook Day with a challenge and we are supposed to lift of the the DT's cards. I chose Nancy's card because of the butterflies and colors. I've seen some 3D butterflies on some creations before so I decided that I definitely have to try it out and see how it looks. I love it. The paper comes from "Bearly Mine Designs". Donna has some freebies ever once in a while and I absolutely love her work and papers. I used the photo shot to change the color of the paper to match my image and what a perfect match it is. Anyways, here is my card... and thanks everyone for all your lovely comments. I love hearing what you think of my cards.
