February Flowers

Hi all.  It has been over 2 weeks since I have posted here.  I was in NYC for my Carnegie Hall concert.  We were up there for 5 days and of course I came back sick.  I have been staying in bed as much as I can, trying to nurse myself back to health!  The concert went very well and it was quite thrilling to be on that big stage with a full orchestra and almost 300 people singing!  It is an experience that I will always remember!  Anyway, back to my card.  This is for the Imagine That Design Team.  I didn't realize that the images were 3 separate files so I put them together on one card.  I really love how it turned out with the 3 images together.  When I showed it to my husband, he loved it so much that he said he wanted to keep it himself.  He didn't want me to send it or sell it!  I sure hope everyone else likes it also.  The images were colored with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.  I cut it out with a Nestabilities die and sponged it while it was still in the die.  I pop dotted the image on a piece of iridescent blue/green card stock that I dry embossed with a horizontal script folder.  Enjoy my "husband's" new card and don't forget to leave me a comment!
I love to hear from you.

Till next time...

February Challenge

Hi All.  I have been away for a while so I need to play catch-up!  Today's card is for the Imagine That Digis Progressive Freebie Challenge for February.  The name of the file is called Polar Love.  As usual, you can buy it at a discount if you didn't participate in last month's challenge.  Remember, once you enter into the challenge, your next challenge set will be free!  Since the colored image from the set had a white bear, I decided to make mine a little different and colored him brown.  I made this into an easel fold card and added a lot of elements.  Sometimes, I feel that I need to step out of the box and do something a little different.  This was the time!  I just love the colors pink and red, together so that was what I did.  I really like the doily effect on top.  This card folds down into an A-2 card and fits nice and flat for mailing (even with the hearts popped up a little).  The 
sentiment is from a set of clear stamps that are all religious in nature.  The inside sentiment says Sending lotsa love, which is from the Polar Love file.  

There are some great things happening over at Imagine That Digis.  Please check them out!  Also, don't forget to leave me a message here on my blog.  Your comments mean a lot to me!

Till next time...
