Whimsical Cupcake Sprite by Aurora Wings

Hello!

Today is a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner-
This week the challenge is ANYTHING GOES!


 My usual go to colors are pinks, purples or blues.  So I decided to change things up 
a bit and went with yellows and greens.  I love how bright and cheerful this turned out.
I paper-pieced the cupcake wrapper too. I love the
effect and extra texture it adds.

Joshua Aviator by Cute As A Button




Happy Wednesday Friends!
Today is the start of a new challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty

The them this week is-  Celebrations
I am sharing Joshua Aviator


I love making cards for BOYS! I have so many in my family and most of friends have boys too.
 This image is super cute and will be a great birthday for special kiddo.

I used an adorable embellishment that is set on a wobble...I like how the
picture shows the movement.
 The balloons were fun to color and practice my
shading and blending techniques.
Since the card had some height with the wobble thingy, I also popped up the image.

I hope you have a chance to join our challenge!

beauty was there.

Swan Enchantress by Lacy Sunshine

TGIF!!
Yup, it's Friday folks!!! Yippee!!!
I am hosting over on the Lacy Sunshine Color & Craft Blog
I am sharing Swan Enchantress

 I think I may have had a little too much creative energy with this one!! LOL
I just wanted to use so many pretty embellishments with this image-
so I did!!
 A closer view of the image- can you see her? I perched her on top of a frame..and since
her little feet were dangling..I curved them upwards...instead of gluing flat.
 I don't alway finish off the inside of cards, until I am ready to use them.  However
this lovely will be ready for my grandparents 70th Wedding Anniversary- in February.
 I nice side view- actually a pretty flat card- given the amount of embellishments.
My recipe of Copic's I used.

I invite you to browse the Lacy Sunshine Shop, join in our challenge HERE
and visit us on Facebook HERE.
