Reading, Flowers and You

Hi Everyone!

Two cards and lots of challenges today. So let's get started with the first one. For this one, I chose Close to Cocoa as my base. The patterned paper is from Rhonda Ferrer and I've had it forever! I also used some Confetti White and Sage Shadow. The image is from Elizabeth Dulemba's Coloring Page Tuesday's collection. This was such a beautiful image and I have been waiting to use it for a long time. I printed it out on Gina K Luxury White and then used Copics to color her in. I used BG10 to put a shadow around her and then distressed the edges with Tattered Rose Distress ink and Vintage Photo ink. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I heat embossed the flowers from Fresh Cuts using Versa Mark and Copper embossing powder. I am entering this card for the following challenges:
1. Tuesday Taggers: Use something related to books or reading in your card
2. Cupcake Craft Challenge: Also a books/reading challenge
3. Daisy Doodle: Anything goes (use a digital image)
4. Sketch and Stash: Sketch
5. Bunny Zoe Crafts: Vintage (Distress it, tear it etc)
6. Ooh La La: Stripes
7. Artful Inkables: Distress
8. Paper, Scissors, Rocks: Heat embossing

The second card I have is for yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch. For this card, I used Scarlett Jewel from PTI and patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection. Aqua Mist ribbon from PTI. The flower in the middle is from Making Memories and the 3D flower sticker in the middle is from K& Company: Wild Saffron Collection. This was an easy card to do since the only stamping involved was the sentiment (from Hero Arts) on the tag in the corner.
The picture came out a bit blurry and I apologize for that! Still, I was pleased with the final results of this card and I hope you all like it too.
This card fits the following challenges:

Mojo Monday: Sketch
The Shabby Tea Room: Tag it
A Pocket Full of Posies: Flowers

What sweet card! I love the large flower and tag on your Tea Room one. I really like the BG paper and the tag sentiment, too. I bought a bunch of that Indian Summer paper, but have never used it....silly me. ;)
Thanks for sharing this with us!
