Susie Sunshine by Conie Fong

Hi everybody!  A second post by me today.  Miracles do happen sometimes - LOL!  This beauty is Conie Fong's "Susie Sunshine", found here:
  I created this DT inspirational card for Conie's current Facebook challenge (theme:  Happy Birthday). She also has a Colouring Only challenge

The mediums that I used are Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.  I decided to make a little scene for this sweet image.  The edges of the butterflies' wings are glittered.       

The large balloon was made by printing out the image in a larger size and added the sentiment before I fussy cut it.  I placed 3-D pop dots underneath the balloon, and finally tied some black cord on the bottom.  My flowers are handmade.   Well, that's all from me today.  Hugs, Lori xx 

Materials and Tools Used 

Top border:  Memory Box "Pristine Border" die (cut twice)
Border:         Martha Stewart "Modern Garland" punch (cut twice)
Fence:          Impression Obsession "DIE004-J Fence" die
Butterflies:   Momenta - Recollections cutting die template 542704 - Butterfly
Flowers:       EK Success "Retro" punches (small and medium)

Ribbon, Swarovski crystals, beads, black cord and  glitter are from my stash.

Little Sprout by Ching-Chou Kuik

Good morning/afternoon!  This is my second DT inspirational card for Ching-Chou Kuik's current Facebook challenge. 
The Design Team was challenged to "Use Your Least Favourite Colour" this week.  Mine is orange but I do like the way it turned out.  I used the sweet "Little Sprout" image, found here:

I fussy cut the bottom of her dress for some interest.  She's coloured with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.  The blue and orange flowers are handmade, as is the pinwheel bow.  Ching-Chou also has a challenge blog.  If you enter this challenge, or both, you have a wonderful opportunity to win some beautiful images.

Have a lovely week.  Hugs, Lori xx
