Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

Good morning!  I can hardly contain myself today!  I have some exciting news to share - I was selected as the Guest Designer for the  Mo's DP2 Challenges for the month of August!!!  I am so thrilled to have the chance to design with the incredibly sweet and talented Design Team this month! This week's challenge was to create an easel card with a bird or animal somewhere on the card.

Here is my card for the challenge:

This is the very first card I've made in my new house!  It was kind of like a "limited supplies" challenge since most of my stuff is still packed.  However, my Copics never left my side during the move and I managed to scrounge up some cardstock and patterned paper to make my card.  I made a 5" square easel card with a base of SU Rich Razzleberry, layers of GKD Turquoise Sea and patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6x6 pad.  My cute Mo's image is Home Tweet Home. I colored it with Copics and highlighted with Spica pens for some sparkle.  A simple bow of Rich Razzleberry ribbon finished my card.

Thanks so much to the Mo's team for inviting me to join them this month and thanks for stopping by!   Be sure to check out all the awesome creations from the rest of the team on the Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog.!

See you soon!

  3. Carla, welcome to the DT for the month of August. You did a great job with your card for having limited supplies. Beautifully colored and nice choice of images for the challenge.

  4. Hi, Carla! It's great to have you as Guest Designer for August at Mo's! Your cards are all beautiful and your design work always so neat and exquisitely executed! You did a great job with this new card ; I know how difficult it can be to make a card with limited supplies. I always feel that:)) because there's such a mess in my crafting room that I can never find what I need:)) So it would be like not having them:)
    Congrats on your new house and look forward to see more of your cards!
    Hugs an d have a happy weekend!
