Embellish It!

Hello peeps.  I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.  Mine was very relaxing.  Since it's Tuesday that means we have a new challenge for you over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog.  It was my turn to pick the challenge and I chose "make your own embellishments".  You can use punches, dies, or whatever suits you and you can add as many or as few embellishments as you want.  Now, how easy is that?


I used BFF's Phoebe on my card and colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I stitched around my image and used my Martha Stewart lace heart border punch.  My flower was made using a My Favorite Things die.  I handcut the little leaf and added a pearl to the flower. 

Be sure you stop by the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog to check out the gorgeous cards by the other DT members.  I hope you find time to play along in our challenge this week.

I would like to enter my card in this challenge:
OohLaLa Challenge 81  -  Happy Birthday
Paper Pretties Challenge 155  -  Birthday Card
Scrappy Frogs Challenge  -  Happy Birthday

Anita I love all the layers you used behind the image, really makes it stand out. Such a simple card but those colors are gorgeous and I love the single flower, simple yet very effective.
