Celebrate 2014
Hello everyone, I finally have a card to share with you. The card is for 2 challenges, the first one is for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the twist for this week is anything goes. If you would like to join us you can use any image with any theme. It is all up to you. Our wonderful Sponsors for the month of April are:

Paper Temptress
Over at Color Me Creative challenge #91 for this week we are having a Birthday theme. Our sponsor for the challenge is MarkerPop.  My image is called Summer Swing and is one that MarkerPop has.

The papers I used are all from my scraps. The ribbon on the right side is also from the scraps.

I used a Cut and Fold template from American Traditional Designs. The butterflies are from McGill punch. I added some Cloud 9 rain drops to the center of some of the folds.

My flowers are a Spellbinders die from Heartfelt Creations called Posy Patch. The greens are from a MS punch called Branch. I added some pearl pen gold color to the center of the flowers.

The inside I used MS border punch on 2 sides. I found these sentiments I had and they are made of material and thought they worked well.

These are the copic markers I used to color the image. All the tiny jewels you see are from Nail Art kits, they where so cheep when we stopped at one of the stores here in Austin.

Hello there Pat!! WOWEEE...your cards change my mood instantly! I also must confess, you enable me to procrastinate waaaay too much as well. I get started looking at ALL your detail and before you know it the kids are home and begging for dinner! I just love looking at all your details and the love that obviously pours from your talent of card making.
Thinking of you and your family and keeping all in my prayers. Hope you're doing ok and thank you for always inspiring me with your very unique and incredible style. :)
