"Best Yet"

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I am sharing my card for yesterday's Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge. The image I used is a digital image from Guylou's Inimitability I copied it into Microsoft Word and then resized it so that I knew it would fit into the Label One Nestability that I wanted to use. I printed it out and let the image dry while I worked on the rest of the card. I started with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Ocean Tide from PTI. I added a layer of Mostly Mustard that I embossed using the cuttlebug argyle embossing folder. I cut the Ruby Red piece using Label One Nestabilities. I colored the image using Copics: Y21,Y26,E07 (flowers) G24 (leaves) BG72, BG75 (Basket), G21, G24, E07, E09 (Apples). After I colored it in, I sponged the top with Soft Sky ink and then used my applicator to sponge on Weathered Wood and Tea Dye distress inks around the top and bottom. I also edged the bottom in "Vintage Photo" and also did the top with Weathered Wood again.

My card for today fits the following challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch 57
My Time To Craft: in the Garden
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Digital
Daisy Doodle: Digital Anything
Fab N Funky: Use Material. (I used a piece of ribbon)

I didn't have time do any crafting this morning, so I probably won't be back again until Friday. Until then, enjoy your crafting time!
