Ladybugs and Sunflowers

     I found this wonderful image of ladybugs and sunflowers in my collection of Ching-Chou Kuik digis and decided I wanted to see what I could do using autumn colors on it.  I really like the end result and will probably use it as a birthday card.  I did my best to find the image in the store so that I could make a link for you but I just couldn't find it.  I'm sorry.


I based this on the sketch at The Outlawz.

Colored with ProMarkers and water colors
Image is fussy cut
Orange frame is cut with QuicKutz die
Olive green CS is embossed with "Linen" folder
Card base is pre-embossed
Sheer ribbon and layered sequins

     That's all I have for today.  I'm suffering from a bout of strep throat and am taking proper medications but mostly I sleep.  I guess my whole body needs the rest.  Hope to be back to normal in a day or two.  Wishing you Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

  12. NanaConnie, what a lovely bright and cheery card you have made here which fits perfectly the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Monthly Challenge this month. It's a lovely clean and simple card but the embossed background really makes the image "pop". Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw.
