Classy Lady

     I didn't have a card to post yesterday and I won't have another one until Tuesday because this month has been so busy for me!  I'll be away from my computer for several days at the end of the month, too, but I hope you'll bear with me.  I have two or three days of double posts this coming week so that should make up for it, right?

     I managed to get this card made early this morning, using the August Progressive Challenge image from the ArtbyMiRan FB page.  Isn't she darling?  I used her for a Thank You card because my stash of those is getting low.


     I colored her with my ProMarkers, then die cut her with a die from Spellbinders.  I mounted that onto another die cut (same set) and layered that onto a piece of silver glittered paper which had been die cut and embossed.  Everything went onto a black card base.  Obviously, I loved using my favorite purples and I adore how they worked so well with the silver!  What a great combo.  :-D

     I added the three tiny butterflies in the upper corner and the sheer ribbon bow with the purple pearl at the bottom.  Very complex looking but really rather simple and fast to make.

     Challenges:
Crafty Sentiments
Creative Corner
Creative Fingers
Digi Choosday
Lemon Shortbread
Paper Shelter
Penny's Paper-Crafty

     I'll be sharing five new releases from MHK Designs this week, starting on Tuesday.  Come by and check them out.  They're gorgeous!   Then on Thursday, in the evening *(my time), I'll have a post with some wonderful news to share.  Friday is another new challenge at QKR Stampede and I'll have my DT card for that one.  Finally, next Sunday, August 21, the new challenge will begin at MHK Designs but for now you still have time to enter the current one before it closes on Aug. 20.  Hope to see you there.

Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
