I created this for 2 challenges.... Flourishes challenged us to use Dollies....and the only one I had was in my 5yr old's craft box, so I stole that one and since it was a heart, it is good for the anniversery card I was making. I used the sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge for my design.
All sponging done in Holtz distress ink linen....I only have walnut and linen and use them all the time....need to put together a list for my husband and get some new colors....would make good stocking stuffers...hmmm....shopping and emailing will comence tonight after kids are asleep!
Ribbon from michaels
Flourishes image of the lilacs (which my mil loves), cut out in spellbinders Label 8
colored in copics....bv00,02,04,08 for flowers..YG63,67 for leaves
Patterned paper from paper studio mirabelle paper stack...this stack is great because a ton of the colors match the linen ink from tim holtz that I use so much!

I just made this card for the Pixie Cottage Challege. I was practicing shadding on the hair and skin from a tutorial since I am not the best. I like the way she turned out. My husband could even tell which way the light was shining on her, so I am improving. I didn't shade her dress, I like to keep cards a little simple.
Image is sugar nellie gorjuss girl colored with copics--stamped in momento ink on papertrey cs--cut out with spellbinders oval and scallop oval. the colored cs is SU and papered paper is unknow stack from michaels. Cuttlebug folder for embossing swiss dots.
Ribbon is satin from ribbons and bows oh my and the metal spiral is from a kit I got from the angel company.
I didn't add a sentiment because I am not sure what I will use her for, but have lots of gals in my life so she won't be wasted!

I rather liked the way this came out. Loving he black and purple. I am thinking of adding black faux stitching on the lavendar cs, both at the top and at the scallop part also.
SU cardstock, copic coloring...(abiet sad shading job, just couldn't get it to blend!) Unknown stack summer patterned paper. Will make some little gal a very great birthday card!
Also entered into the Cute Card Thursday challenge sketch

I made these thank yous for my mother to use since she has run out. She needs alot for my sister's memorial service last week. So I had to keep them simple and not too much extra things on them so I could make several. I also used up scraps that I found around, so there are several different variations of this.
