Thinking of You Card

I've been really getting a lot done by doing challenges. Here are the challenges I completed.

I entered this card at Copic Creations  for their one year blogoversary.  We were supposed to choose a technique that we've learned this last year and they have some wonderful lessons. Since I've just started the technique I chose is combining Copics with colored pencils because they've really taught me how to use both until I can expand my copic collection more.

I did this adorable card for another challenge at the Critter Challenge Blog. We were to use green, yellow, and blue, and any flower. I chose this cute little turtle with the rose. All the paper is from my scrap bin. I am determined to dwindle it down and cards are a great way to do that.

And one more challenge to use the colors from nicoleheady's blog challenge. I chose Dawn McVey's color sample.

I sanded all the paper for a soft distressed look. The turtle was done using a digital stamp and some colored pencils as well as copic markers. Isn't he just plum cute?! I love the copic markers and added 3 more to my collection this week. I'm trying to use my 40% off coupons at Hobby Lobby and I bought some ciao markers at my LSS. They're a little cheaper and the same great quality!
The tag was stamped with Stampendous Friendly Messages stamp set and the ribbon is from the Karen Foster Mother collection.
I hope you enjoy my card and check out the Critter Challenge Blog to play along. Be sure and let me know if you do. I'd love to come check it out.
Have a blessed day
