Purple and black

At Glitter n Sparkle this week, the challenge is to use
"purple and black."

I got the delightful image "happy new year" from
Crafts and Me. 
I chose to make a birthday card - for a friend
who is due to have her baby, around her birthday
and she is desperate to have a bottle of prosecco!  (or five! .. after the birth.)

I used my alcohol markers 
to colour this image, a border punch, a die from "The Works" 
and the butterflies are punched with my
 Martha Stewart punch.
The image is slightly raised on 3d foam.

Fall / autumn

The new Glitter n Sparkle challenge has just started...
this week we are asking you to show us your 
creativity, using "autumn colours."

Here is a card I made for the challenge this week...

This wonderful image came from Crafts and Me.
It's called "bottom of the garden." 

I added a sentiment from my pc and 
coloured it with my alcohol markers,
then mounted it onto a brown patterned paper.
After embossing the edge of the card and inking the edges
 of the image and brown paper,
I added a few autumnal punched leaves and a diecut "Dad".

Autumn colours

"Kokopelli Southwestern Tile"
was the perfect image this month, for the challenge "shades of autumn"

I loved colouring this image with my promarkers.
I had real fun, making extra patterns on the border.
I mounted it simply, onto a kraft card and added a simple border there too.
