Tiddly Inks Challenge #2: Mother's Day


Hello! I see I am just scraping by here...entries for this challenge need to be uploaded in roughly 3 1/2 hours! Good grief; why am I always running so behind?!
The theme for the challenge was to make a Mother's Day card. I chose this cute image because I thought what Mom wouldn't like getting flowers? The image is colored with pencils and as usual I have applied a liberal dose of glitter to the wings. I applied a finer glitter to the centers of the flowers and to her little blue shoes. In real life this little gal really shimmers and sparkles!
I used a sketch I saw on Mercy's blog; I tell you she really makes adorable cards and uses the neatest sketches! You'll have to check them out....
Image: Tiddly Inks Digi Stamp
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Dark Chocolate, SU! Bashful Blue, The Paper Studio DP
Embellies: PTI Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Foam Tape
You can check out the other entries in for this challenge on the Tiddly Inks blog. I believe they will announce a new challenge tomorrow and there is even a blog hop coming up. I hope I have time to make something to participate....
Well that's all I have for today, but I will be back tomorrow with my Tuesday Morning Sketches card. It was a bit of a long day at work today; we had our first day training the staff for a major computer upgrade to be installed in June. It's always good to get that first day out of the way.... Now I can just relax tonight and watch Dancing With The Stars!
Thanks for stopping by; have a great evening!
