WOJ's Charm Challenge & Just Magnolia's Sketch Challenge


Hello Everyone,

After a super busy and productive weekend, I did find time to make two cards for two different challenges. My first card is for WOJ's Challenge # 33 ....(make a card using charm embellishments.)



Although summer is here officially, around my area the night time temperatures are still a bit chilly! I should send this card to a friend who is still fussing about our Michigan weather! *wink*



Card Details.........
stamp WOJ ( Willow with hot chocolate), sentiment My Favorite Things sentiment pack,c/s PTI's Cream and Bazzill, dp Imaginisce, inks Copic Markers. To embellish I used Nesties Labels four and sm. circle dies, gems, ribbon, scrappers floss, flowers and charms



My second card is for Just Magnolia's sketch challenge #8! The talented Rach (Paper Crafts by Rach) designed this sketch for this weeks challenge.



I made a bit of a "boo boo" coloring Tilda's apron. I had visions of a creamy colored apron but I goofed and picked a the wrong marker by mistake. grrrrrrrrr !!! I tried to correct my goof but the strong brown color didn't lift so good. *sigh* So.......I left "well enough alone" and here we are! *more sighs*!!!




Card Details.........
stamp Magnolia, sentiment The Cats Pajamas, c/s Neenah Solar White and PTI, dp Reminisce (American Girl), Nesties oval dies, Copic Markers, ribbon, flowers, half pearls, slot punch and extra fine glitter


Have a wonderful evening everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!

hugs

Risa

Both of your cards are stunning Risa! The first one is my fav, I'm partial to WOJ & this image is so precious (sniff, I only have 1 WOJ & this isn't it), I luv this soft pink cs & your coloring is always so perfect!

Hey Risa! You're so good with the challenges. I'm trying to get into them but I really need it to become a habit. I always forget about the challenges when I'm creating my cards. Your WOJ card is so pretty! I have that stamp because you were so kind to gift one to me. Thank you.

Your coloring is beautiful!! You really have a knack with those Copic Markers. I think Tilda's apron look great the way it does. The color looks very rich!! I love it!
