Life's too Short to Act Normal

Hey, here is a very pink card I enjoyed making; I made it to enter in the Cards Galore challenge, pinks and purples.

I printed this digi from Meljens Designs and coloured him using promarkers. I then cut and embossed him using Xcut nesting dies.
I used holographic purple card to back the image, and used pink and pink swirly papers to back the card and layer the colours up. I stamped the 'Life's too short to act normal!' sentiment onto pale pink and backed it with park pink card. I raised this up on the edge of the image and gave the cat a bowtie. To finish, I used different shades of pink and purple card candy to embellish :)

cc monthly challenge - time to embellish
divas by design challenge - to die for

I printed my Fizzy Moon, All About Him image and coloured him using my new promarkers!! I then cut him into a book shape and inked round the edge with Brilliance Sky Blue ink. I inked the edge of my card blank with darker blue ink and covered it with blue checked paper, overlapping the folded edge. I edged my image with dark blue and attatched this on a diagonal. I used blue ribbon across the bottom of the card with a pale blue bow and attatched blue buttons to the corners of the image and card. I embossed a swirly arrow with cosmic shimmer light and dark blue embossing powders and attatched this to the top lefthand corner of the image.

Thank You Flower Pot

Hey, only just found time to make a card while taking a break from revising for exams. This is for the lady who lives next door to my student house and shes been so lovely and supporting to us.
I started by colouring the image, a Tiddly Inks Digi image, with promarkers. I then edged her with Versamagic pixie dust ink. I chose papers from a pile of scraps; edged the image with yellow paper and attached my backing papers. I cut a flower circle using a Fiskers punch and used this to pop out from behind my image. I used homemade flowers backed with yellow and pink flowers to embellish, as well as pink lace and matching card candy. I used a 'Thank You' sentiment, which I raised up onto the image. To finish, I cut a butterfly using Cheery Lynn Designs Exotic Butterfly dies, and embossed it using three different cosmic shimmer embossing powders ...Hopefully the lady next door will love it :)
