Here is an adorable card using "Empty Pocket Shrugger" by Fred, She Said.  I colored her using Copic markers.  My designer paper is from my sister Darsie's craft room.  (I just love her stuff)!!  I added blue satin/organza  and red ribbon.  Made my own sentiment, but the image comes with some very fabulous ones.  My finishing touch are blue flower brads.

Belli Challenge #117 - Letter "S"

This week's theme for the Belli Challenge is the "Letter S".  That means anything that starts with "s".  My creation is a little late for Mother's Day, but isn't every day Moms' Day!!

 My card I am using stripes and swirls.  My sentiment is from DeeDee's Digis.  My butterfly is a silver sticker I added to acetate and then colored with Copic markers and cut out and added white pearls.  Next I added a teal bow and teal roses from Recollections.  Finally I finished with teal pearls.

May Angels Watch Over You

Here is a creation I made using the "Angel Series" from Fred, She Said.  There are three sets from this series.  I used the pre-coloured digi and Christian sentiment sets.  I like the pre-coloured for when I am short on time, and they are colored so beautifully!   My designer paper is called "At Home" by Die Cut With A View.  I added ivory lace around the oval nestability, gold/ivory satin/organza bow.  My finishing touch is gold pearls.
