#4 Friend of Flourishes

Shirley has chosen a great Challenge  for today It  is Love Makes the World Go Round!
 Come join us at Friend of Flourishes today! Love instead of hate...we sure  need more 
of that dont we!! So for my card I have used the Sentiment instead of an image.. No coloring
 how easy is that. I love polka dots and this isnt really a Valentine traditional  color but I like it.
 Just some layers, distressing and a few little flowers to dress it up a bit.My brown flowers
 dont show up but they really are pretty in person. I tried more light for them to show up
 but then everything else washed out so this is the best I could get. Voila there you go,
 so be sure to check out this image and the others released for those sweet moments! 

 My teammates have some beautiful inspiraton for you so stop by
and check them out!!

Pammie's Inky Pinkies #1701

Are you all ready for a new Challenge?

 We are very excited to announce our first challenge at Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenge 
 It is an Anything Goes Challenge unless there is a fifth Monday and then it will be a theme.
There is an A & B team who will be alternating weeks.
The B team is very excited to be sponsored 
by MHK Design today.Im using their delightful Rooster and Hen image.        .
I used a few Copics and  water color pencils on my image. I love Chickens,
 they are real characters and when they are feel safe and are at peace they make 
the sweetest little cooing sounds. My oldest Chicken was 14 when she died and still laying.
 So all that to say I happily chose this image to color and used the colors of one of my old roosters.
I used a chicken wire embossing folder for the background
and a corrugated strip and button for embellie.

Be Sure to Stop by and Check out our Challenge we would
