The uber cute image is Beachy Tia, a digi from Some Odd Girl. Stampin' for the Weekend has Holidays as its challenge theme, this little beach babe is CLEARLY enjoying hers, so I'm entering there. Ellephantastic Challenges theme is Here Come the Girls, so Tiny Tia is entering there too.
I bought a few Some Odd Girl digis recently, this is the first chance I've had to get one coloured up and I thought Tia was just perfect for the colours and style of Cupcakes photo inspiration (they always find some seriously rockin' cupcakes for their inspiration!), she is coloured with Copics -after I took this photo I added some gloss to her sunnies, but I haven't taken another photo so just "think" glossy, lol. Stamp Something has its Digi Day challenge on, so I'm in!
I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly this time, very nice sketch - thank you very much ;-) The papers are from American Crafts City Park collection (that I won from Tracy in March!!!) and my Echo Park Walk In The Park pad, man I LOVE that pad, I'm going to have to buy another one it just is so usable.
The image panel is cut and embossed using Nestabilities Classic Ovals, I used Nestabilites Scalloped Ovals for the purple foil mat. I used the same foil to mat the sentiment ticket (which was a blank ticket digi from Bizzy Becs, I added the sentiment on the computer) I used my smallest circle punch to clip the ticket/mat into shape - I really want a ticket die, but the one I want has been unavailable, I digress....
Well, even if there weren't enough punches on the outside of the card, the inside makes up for it: I used my new (literally opened the mail, and used the test cut!) Nellies Choice Floral Punch for the flowers on the inside, as well as my EK Success Doily Lace edge punch.
Paper Play Challenges has Make your own flowers, Moving Along With The Times has Hand Made flowers, as does Craft Your Days Away so my mail man arrived just in time for me to enter all those challenges, lol.The ribbon, pearls and flowers on the front are from my stash.
Digi Stamps 4 Joy and My Time to Craft has In Full Bloom and Bearly Mine Challenges have Flowers as their theme...but you don't have to make them yourselves so even the paper and the flowers on the front would get me in there!
Simon Says Challenge and The Paper Shelter have Anything Goes and Totally Gorjuss has As You Like It, so I don't even need the flowers to get in there, my colours cute image and great sketch are all as I like it, so I'm in!!
Well, that's it for Beachy Tia and me! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT inspiration, all Sweeties, and have a go at the challenge too - so much inspiration to be had from those gorgeous cupcakes!
I'm sorry this post is a bit lacking in the formatting department, Blogger is giving me a LOT of trouble (including not publishing my scheduled posts!)
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee
