You're 1...

I made this adorable card for the Belli Challenge this week where we had to put a number on our card! I used an image from Karen's Doodles called "Penguin Cupcake" which I colored with Copic Markers. My designer paper is from the Paper Studio and I computer generated my sentiment. I finished the card off with star buttons and pearls.


Here's a cute card I created using an image I got from Free Digital Stamps blog. I colored the Scarecrow image with Copic markers, then used Ranger's Distress Ink "Antique Linen" to soften the background. My designer paper is from the Fall Stack by K & Company! My sentiment is from Inkadinkado and my punched strip is from Martha Stewart. I finished the card with floral brads.
