If you will pop over to the Just Magnolia's Challenge blog you can see lots of wonderful cards with and the sketch from fellow DT Martine - great sketch... I just really got out of control and well the basics are there -
I started with my Tilda.. she was one I haven't used in a long time and she just looked like summer to me. So I colored her up with my Copics and even pulled out my Flower Soft to give her some fun flowers this time. Problem... well she was just a tad big for the sketch, and if I made her a tag like the options, it would cover over 1/2 of her up. So I decided to not make a tag and just let her be.
I then moved on to the card - this gave my flower soft time to dry as well. The Making Memories Chloe's Closet was still sitting on my desk and the colors were wonderful for summer. I followed the sketch and used a Bazzil Swiss dot blue card stock as my base. Inked the edges of all the papers and then sewed everything down. I used the EK Success Retro flower punch and Martha's frond leaf punch with MM button brads. I put my image on the card and ahhh uh oh... She is still so big that I have no room for my sentiment. And I really wanted to use a piece of the matching twill ribbon... oh well her shoes just had to be covered and don't tell anyone.. but I was really ok with that cuz I had colored them bright yellow and they were driving me nuts.. just too bright! LOL
Now pop on over to the Just Magnolia's blog and see all the gorgeous work from the other DT - they didn't have trouble you can tell by how wonderful their cards are!
I do hope you have a wonderful Friday! The weekend is coming! I am doing some laundry and trying to help Hubby with "construction" of my craft room.. figure all I can help the fast it moves right? LOL He might not agree....
