Arigato ~ Thanks!

Good morning everyone! Hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July celebration. We had a blast yesterday! The children danced, ate good food, and watched one of the most amazing fireworks show in our area. The show was fantastic and it lasted for about 25 minutes… We also had live music!!!

Okay, back to the reason why I’m here today. It is time for a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant Blog. This week, we have a recipe challenge. We were asked to create a card using 3 layers, 2 die cuts, and ribbon. Here is what I came up with!!




Today’s card uses one the images from Whimsie Doodles. They are just releasing two new images today. The one I am using is called Miyako Cookies ~ yes, she is a geisha! Don’t you love her? To create my card, I am using one of the sketches from Card Patterns too. I love their sketches!!




The image was colored with prismacolor pencils. I used my clear glaze pen to draw tiny stars to decorate her kimono (the blue section of it) ~ hope you can see that! To make the rice, I used my liquid appliqué. I also made those little flowers!!   Here is a closer look to see all those little details.





Hope you can play along with us for a chance to win the new images we are showcasing today at The Pink Elephant. Now is time to hop over there and see the beautiful creations the rest of the DT has created using these awesome images. See you there!!




Thanks for visiting again and taking the time to write me your comments. I really appreciate your kind words!

Have a fabulous day…!

Hola Sylvia! La tarjerta esta hermosa, me encantan los colores que usaste. Yo he estado con la musa en baja y llegando tarde a casa, pero estoy aprovechando para aprender nuevas tecnicas con Photoshop. Asi que espero pronto estar alimentando mi blog que el pobre esta abandonado.

Recibe un saludo y un abrazo de mi parte.
