Sending You A Hug

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  We're halfway to the weekend!  Yay!  It's been another busy week so far, but I did manage to sneak a little crafting in, so I'm here to share the card I made for a couple of challenges.  My card is for The Digi Bells DT April Blog Hop (spring flowers), the new April/May Challenge on Elizabeth Bell's World (spring is in the air - spring colors and flowers), 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #46 (make it cute) and Sweet Sketch Wednesday #151.

Here is SSW-151:


Here is my card for the challenges:


I started with a card base of GKD Lovely Lavender and layered with soft, flowery papers from the Prima Meadowlark 6x6 pad.  My Elisabeth Bell image is Belles 'n Whistles Happy Mail.  You can find it in the 7 Kids store here.  I definitely think this qualifies as cute!  I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Stickles here and there for some sparkle.  I added White Opal Liquid Pearls to the daisy centers and Buttercup Liquid Pearls to the scalloped frame.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  Some yellow sheer ribbon and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose finished my card. I think I covered all the bases - the sketch, the cute and the spring colors and flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!  See you tomorrow for another fun Mo's DP2 Challenge!

  10. Your cards are always so beautiful Carla that it's such a pleasure to visit. Thank goodness I'm finally getting around to visit everyone and on the mend. I'm finding out when you get old you don't want to get sick........LOL So much harder to recover.

    As always my friend, your coloring is totally awesome and the colors on this card are some of my favorites. Got to get back to my copic class. Forgot everything I learned and need to start over. Take care and have a wonderful weekend ahead. "Hugs"
