What fun I had making my weekly card as a guest design team member at The Digi Bells DT Blog for Elisabeth Bell. Today I chose this darling little digital image from Elisabeth Bell "Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte"
I really tend to shy away from the darker copic colors, so was delighted with the outcome of the "blacks" with a bit of help from Suzanne Dean's copic coloring tutorials on YouTube - Thank you, Suzanne!
I used new and old supplies and some yummy flourish corners my sweet friend, KathyCan and sometimes does, sent me - Thank you, Kathy! The DP papers are from Echo park "victoria garden" and We R Memory Keepers "cotton tail" collections, which I picked up at Oozak. I met up with a bestie of mine for a bit of shopping at the LSS and dinner afterwards - what a treat it was to spend time with Beth. At the LSS I found the little black corner faceted rhinestone flat pearls - they are so pretty and unfortunately the camera just can't pick up the "bling".
I followed the sketch by Dawny P over at Papertake Weekly Challenge blog and knew I wanted to challenge myself into a gatefold with the sketch - took a bit of thinking, but it worked out just fine.
I used my classic circle Spellbinder nestie and ran the sentiment from TlcCreations/Create with TLC via Free Digital Stamps along with the pink dot DP through my Sizzix "music" (Tim Holtz) embossing folder with the cuttlebug and very much enjoyed the results. I also cut the the inside message mat with my Tim Holtz die.
The ribbon rolled roses are from Papermart and the silk flowers and ribbon from my LCS (purchased a year or so ago). When searching through my cards the other day for a friend's birthday, I noted I was quite low on ready-to-give birthday cards, hence, why I stepped out of Mr. McGregor's garden for just a little bit to make this birthday card.
Well, back to the "garden and bunnies"!
Have a wonderful first week of April, My Friends!
