I had a fabulous time coloring this image and making this card (it's 6"x6"). It was downright fun. I was able to be super girly and used the awesome color combination of pink and red. I think I missed the Valentine boat, don't you?! I used my Copics because I had an awesome variety of pinks and blending the reds is pretty easy with these markers.
Because I used so many different dies and punches, I wrote them down the items as I went (there is a first time for everything!). This card should prove to many companies that I am working very hard at doing my part to keep them in business. So, here's the list:
Dies: Whimsy corner, La-La Land banner, Marianne Crafts fence, Impression Obsession watering can, Joy grass.
Punches: Stampin' Up (around sentiment), EK Butterfly
Paper: Doodlebug (isn't this paper awesome...bright, cheerful and so pretty!)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts (paper); Kaisercraft (resin)
And, the small pearls are from my BFF, Lillian, and came in a humongous strip about 12" long and like 10 rows across (I still have lots of pink pearls this size!) and I used WOW! glitter with Aleene's white glue on the edges of the butterflies. I used Star Dust Stickles on the flowers. Unfortunately glitter just doesn't photograph very well and you don't see the pretty effect of either. :(
Here's a close up of this cute cute image. I fell in love with her when I saw her in black and white so I am tickled pink (and red) to show her off in living color!
I hope you'll take a look at the cards the Design Team have made this week. I think you'll be inspired by them and remember:
