Reason to Celebrate

For this weeks QKR Stampede Challenge, my DT card features a Eureka Stamp image [ES-digi37801-Declaration of Independence.]  You can find it HERE. I used scraps of background papers [starry night sky, patriotic stars and sheet music], the front from a broken earring [from my mom's jewelry stash] and white photo corners.  The inside sentiment is computer generated with a font named Asiyah Script  It matches the font on the digi pretty well, doncha think?

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge- July  

I love this sweet image from All Dressed Up [ADU]named Dino, and did a bit of paper piecing with some scraps of pinstripe blue paper to turn it into a card that fits into ADU's current theme "For the Boys."  I printed the digi onto kraft brown paper and adding a little color and shading with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiments are computer generated.

Power Poppy's current Creative Confetti Challenge is named "Just Color "  and the requirement is to color with our favorite medium.  These days my favs are Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.  I printed a family of gingerbread peoples onto kraft brown paper and got to work bringing them to life with color. Aren't they adorable? The little striped frames are from my scrapbook stash and the sentiments are computer generated.

    The Christmas card I was led to is very sweet. I smiled when I noticed that some of the gingerbread men had a bite or two out of them! Great design to showcase that sweet gingerbread person.
