Lily, you little cutie!!!

Cole finished his swimming lessons on Saturday and received his very first report card. He passed with flying colors and got his Starfish sticker. Talk about a proud mama. In his class there was a little girl who looked exactly like Lily from the Pink Cat Studio stamp collection. I just had to make her a card with Lily on it and this card is what I made for her. I kept the design really simple. I didn't want to take away from the image or the ribbon which I absolutely love.

These are the Copics I used.


Stamps: Lily at the Beach
Paper: Regal Rose, Cutey Pie DSP, Gina K white
Ink: Memento Ink, Copic Markers
Acc: Retired SU Ribbon, Label Nesties

This was my first color challenge and I found out that I stuck at color challenges. I fiddled and fiddled with this card until 20 minutes before the birthday party. I still wasn't that happy with it but I couldn't make the little girl wait for her birthday card. LOL

Finally, the third challenge for this card is Just Magnolia Summer Challenge sponsored by Jacobi Drachten.

Magnolia-licious Sketch Challenge

This is the card I made Magnolia-licious Highlites Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch:

The colors were inspired by SU Juntos Paper. I was flipping through my stash and when I saw this paper I knew I had to make a Tilda card with it. I know, I know. It is a fall looking card and summer has not officially started yet. But you know how it is when inspiration hits. LOL

These are the copic marker I used.

Sweet Pea

I am in love with Pink Cat Studios Sweet Pea Stamp set. The little babies are just the cutest. First is the little boy version of my card. I drew inspiration from my own 10 month old little boy. He has to touch everything right now.

Next is the little girl version of my card. I think she is just adorable.
