A Couple o' Challenges

Another Quickie post.... work is seriously hampering my craft and blogging time!  LOL

Chelsea, this is the card I was making as we were talking on the phone last night.  I hope you feel better.... love ya!!

This one's for two challenges - 365 Cards - Day 72 - It Needs Something (I added liquid glass to the balloon to make it rounded and shiny, and used thread to make the string instead of drawing the line) - and for Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge - Clean and Simple.  I've been practicing my Copic colouring technique after taking a class on Saturday.  I gotta tell you, I am LOVIN' the Copics.  I've loved colouring since I was a wee lass... 

Card Base - dollar store; DP - Basic Grey (Lemonade); Image - Sugar Nellie (Gorjuss - Up, Up and Away); Sentiment - CTMH; Liquid Glass - CTMH; Coloured with Copics.

And a bonus card - not for challenge... just for fun (and for the CBCF card sale)
Card Base - dollar store; DP - MME (Laundry Line) & Basic Grey (Lemonade); Image - Sugar Nellie (Gorjuss - Poppy Fields); Sentiment - Fiskars; Coloured with Copics.

Thanks so much for poppin' by... I hope y'all have a GREAT day!

Your cards are lovely. Using Liquid Glass to add dimension is a favourite technique. It is so effective.
