Creative Card Crew challenge #34

Good evening everyone!

Hope this finds everyone having had a great start to the week!  Despite another snow storm coming thru all day today through Wednesday, I have had a fantastic day!  Cheery Lynn released their new dies this morning and I was right on it throwing stuff into my online buggy as soon as they went live- they are great!  I've been sitting on some store credit I have with them, just waiting, which really is not an easy thing to do when it comes to their dies LOL.  A few hours later, I received my shipping notice- Boy, are they fast!  Now I have the hard part of waiting for them to get here.

Since our Spring weather is playing a tease with us coming and going, I had a great time making this card for our challenge over at Creative Card Crew.  Handmade Flowers is the theme for this challenge, and I love making my flowers.  Not to mention, what a great reminder that Spring will stop teasing us soon.  This fortnight we are being sponsored by Birdie Brown- the random winner will receive three digis of their choice.  How cool!  It will be hard to pick out of so many great images though.  Which by the way, Torico has also released some new stuff today and they are just fabbie!  Swing on over and check them out- there's freebies while you're there too. 

For my card, I chose to use Look up at the sky.  She is just too cute sitting amongst the daisies.  The handmade daisies were made with Cheery Lynn's Daisy Strip die; the big one has all 6 layers while the two smaller ones flanking were made with the two smallest layers.  I have also used a partial piece of their Honeycomb Frame die behind the image.  The honeycomb was sponged in Tea Dye distress ink, sponged again with Distress embossing Ink, sprinkled with Shabby White Fran-tage and heat zapped.  I can't get enough of that Fran-tage!  It just fits any theme. 

Copics used:
Outfit:  BV20/23/25/29, RV91/93/95/99
Shoes:  E35/39
Skin:  E0000/000/00, R20
Hair:  E11/13/15
Sky/clouds:  C00/2, BG000
Grass:  YG09, G16, and I don't remember which others

I have seen so many gorgeous cards with hidden tags in them, so I tried my hand at it.  If anyone has any good tutorials about this technique, I would greatly appreciate it!  Google failed me this time.  Not sure I did it correctly, as it just doesn't look right to me, not seeming to sit well in the card.  But here is a picture of the tag itself.

Same as above, more Tea Dye distress ink and Fran-tage.  I really need to remember to shop my stash more often.  I had forgotten I even had these cardstock cut-outs from K & Co.  Another freebie with a Christmas order I placed back in November.  There's some really neat ones in that pack, which hadn't even been opened until my toddler brought them to me while I was trying to figure out what to do with the tag.

Anyway, I'm running late yet again (story of my life).  Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you have a fabulous few days before I am back again with my next card for the next challenge!

Big hugs,

- Jenn
