I have another card today, this one using the absolutely adorable Annabelle by Conie Fong. With green being the “color” for March, I decided to do this card up in that color scheme as much as possible.  I colored the image with my SN markers, and distressed the edges, then got to work trying to find papers and embellishments.  The background paper is a big leaf print, which you can’t really see, but the color was what I was looking for.  I knew I had some basket weave texture paper, which I wanted to use, and, luckily found in my ever growing stash.  I wanted a lighter green piece, and found a piece of Whitewash Core-dination paper, but the whitewashed part was too light so flipped it over.  A doily and some lace finished off the foundation of the card.  I have a huge jar of diecut flowers that I can never seem to find a use for, so I shaped and layered them, to mirror the flowers in Annabelle’s basket.  A few punched leaves, pearls, pretty green ribbon and bow,  and a stamped sentiment finished this card off :)

Hydrangea SpriteWhen I saw the color combo for the them at the Aurora Wings Challenge, I knew that I had to participate! I love the purple green and gold colors of Mardi Gras!!  I was originally intending on doing  one of the pansy images I have up into a card, but I went shopping and found this beauty, and had to have her!! Big Eyed Hydrangea Sprite can be found here or here. I love shopping at the new Aurora Wings store, it’s so easy to get around!  I

I colored her up with my SN markers, and was so tickled with the finished result!! Let me tell you, I was holding my breath towards the end, hoping that I didn’t screw up!!  I found some shimmery gold card stock for the back, layered the image with a green scrap and a doily; then cut some light purple flourishes out with a die.  The bow and ribbon are actually 2 different ribbons, a sage green and a gold mesh.  Then I punched and punched and punched little flowers, that I added gold glitter centers to, and arranged around the image with some punched leaves.  A few gold dots and this card was finished!! :)
