Thrilled To Be a Guest Designer!!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic day. I am very excited to share with all of you these two cards I made for The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog. Lori invited me to be April's guest designer. I feel very honored with such an invitation! We were challenged to create a card using this week's theme which is Nature and this is what I came up with.





Aren’t these images the cutest? For those of you that want to know, they are from All That Scraps - Swiss Pixie set. I adore these images, and they are so much fun to color. Both cards use the image called Nora.







I colored the images with my prismacolor and blended with gamsol. To create this card, I used a piece of the Green at Heart paper collection from Basic Grey. I added some glitter to Nora’s wings to make them sparkle just a bit. As a final touch, I added a butterfly and one of the crocheted flowers I made the other day.





And lastly, the second card uses Victorian Rose paper collection. The image is from the same set! The beautiful satin ribbon is from PTI.  See those little flowers? Those are flower brads. They really add a nice touch to the card, and also work perfectly with this week’s challenge theme.






That’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by….. Don’t forget to stop by The Pink Elephant blog to check out what the rest of the design team has created this week. Hope you can join us too by playing along!!!
