I added a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, and some holly leaves I had from somewhere else, I paper pieced the dress with Chatterbox paper I've had forever called Holiday Sprinkles, with SU CS and a little sentiment from my PC:-)

If you are on track with the hop then you just came from Carolannes blog )
The theme for this blog hop is Elephants-and big birthday bash as I see it:-)
I used the cricut cartridge Create a Critter and Elise pattern cart in my Imagine, adding some ink on the edges and stickles:-) I added a sentiment from Mr Cricut Crazy's set Birthday, Birthday.

I used dimensional glaze for the pail and the pail on Nesto's head too! sea shells got a bit of stickles on them in spots, and crystal glitter here and there for my sand:-)
I made my tag out of teal green glitter paper and added a ticket I have had saved on my PC from I think a dt member but can not remember. The paper is some left over DCWV and the rhinestones were colored with my Copic markers to match the pail. I went with bright colors because it's a fun image, so why not go bold:-) LOL
Here is a closeup of a Martha Stewart jumbo corner punch I have, with added pearls
The coloring on this picture is off, I was experimenting with my new camera and finally called it a day after getting a bit frustrated:-) No matter what I did the cream bow looks yellow and the finished piece is much prettier in person! I used a piece of bazzill wedding striped satin paper with a piece of vanilla and splash bazzill CS.

I'm not sure what the deal was on the day I made this other then the humidity but my copic markers were not playing nice at all! it was the same paper i always use but the blending was horrible:-( Boy is it hard to only play with certain colors:-) but that's why its called a "challenge"

Here is the whole card for you to check out:-)

If you decide to take all 4 online Copic classes (only) I will take $25 OFF the regular class prices!! Please email me if you'd like to do this and I will send you a special invoice with the discounted price--easier for both of us. So now is the time if you would like to take an online class of Suzannes!
I finally pulled my air compressor out to use with my Copic markers and boy did I have fun! I have had the system for a year and never pulled it out of the box! I airbrushed the flower pieces and the rhinestone:-) The red is a bit bright on this pic, it is more toned down than this.
I also airbrushed the rhinestone and pearls at the top! Stampin Up design paper was used for the card and Marianne D dies I finally got at CHA was used for the flourish pieces.

I colored the image with Copic markers and added a piece of Stampin Up Ribbon to finish this off:-)Here is a picture of the sketch to be used for the challenge, and it can be anything, not just a card, It could be a scrapbook layout too! anything you can think up with this sketch in mind:-)

Boy have I had a work out the past few DT challenges with keeping it simple and no design papers:-) I love how this card came out but i do love design papers:-) I embossed the white cardstock with my snowflake folder and used Bazzill and stamping up cardstock for the layers! Throw in a bit of Stampin up ribbon that reminds me of a candy cane:- ) and there ya go!

Here's a bit closer look at the glitter glistening I love how it ended up on just spots !
See here I really did keep it simple! Very hard for me but I really like It's simple concept. I added the ribbon to the inside part of the card as the front I cut shorter so I could add the ribbon the way it is....something different all around today for me. I made a computer generated sentiment and used my Stampin Up circle punches for the mats. I used Copic markers to color the images, easy peasy! Now why not go and make a simple creation and enter it in the challenge with us?? I am going now to enjoy my youngest son and my time away in Yes Disney, where you all know I love to spend my time:-) This is our big vacation for the summer, I enjoy getting to spend time with Ryan as he is 12 and there may not be many more years that he will love spending time with his "mom" He is my last child, my little guy is not little anymore , (Tear) and I am running against time to cram in as many happy memories with "mom & Dad" as I can before the girlfriends and then wife take that time from us:-)
