Spread Your Wings

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend!  I sure did!  It was so much fun meeting up with crafty friends from The Outlawz at the Rodeo in Baltimore this weekend!  We had a great time and we're already thinking about another one next year! You'll definitely want to get in on the fun next time!  Huge kudos and thanks to Colleen, the leader of The Outlawz site, who worked so hard to plan this fantastic event!  Thanks also to Suzanne Dean and Marti Wills for their wonderful classes and to everyone who sponsored or helped out!  I think I can say that a fabulous time was had by all who attended!

OK, on to my card.  I am really trying to catch up from being away from the computer and the craft room for three days.  Today, I am sharing a card I made for a few challenges: the Little Miss Muffet Challenge #35 (anything goes), Oozak Challenge #2 (spring colors), the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #186 (in the garden) and the Papertake Weekly Challenge (also in the garden).

Here is my card:


I started with a card base of SU Baja Breeze and layered with patterned papers from the Memory Box Minuet 6x6 pad.  I merged two images, Park Bench For Two from Make it Crafty and Butterfly Kisses from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I printed the merged garden scene on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored with my Copics. I sponged in the sky with my cloud template.  I added a bit of Stickles to the butterfly and some sparkle to her flip flops and tee shirt with Spica pens.   A sentiment from Create With TLC finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great evening and hope to see you soon!

  4. WOW Carla...what a beauty this is! I am so envious over the "merging" that you do of different images. I do not have a program that will let me do that so I need to search for one, I guess, lol!!!
