Lilac's in Spring

Hi it's challenge time at Graph'It markers and this is my inspiration. 

A simple card design which I was inspired to do watching my friend make a card the other day and this just popped into my head. Thanks for the help.

I have coloured the image with my Graph'it markers, I have also put a black and white version in the bottom right corner of the background for a contrast. I have layered it all on lilac and purple card.

Then just a nice big bow and a small round greeting in the left corner. I hope you gives you all some ideas and you pop over to the blog and join in the challenge.

I have entered this card in the following challenges

Dream it Up - Birthday Wishes
Paper Shelter - Lots of Layers
Craft-Dee Bowz - ATG with bow

Snail Mail

My very late DT card for this Months challenge at The Crafting Cafe. The theme this month is

Lots of layers.

This is one of our sponsors, Bugaboo, images and I have coloured it with Graph'It Markers. I have made the pale green panel down the back using Alcohol Inks.

I have cut an aperture out of the brown card using a Spellbinders Die and the added the pink frame also cut with Spellbinders dies. I have decorated the frame with some clear gems.

For this side panel I have used several Stampin'Up products.The fern leaf is stamped in Brown Sugar ink, Punch out 3 tags and the flowers and added coloured candy to the centres. Finally metal decorative corners and 3 butterfly charms. I hope you like it.

White Right

I have not put anything on here for a few weeks as I have been on a lovely holiday, but it's time to get back to my cards.

Welcome back to the current challenge from Graph'It Markers. The theme this time is
Crisp and White.

I have used a lovely image from Aurora Wings and of 
course it has been coloured with my Graph'It Markers. I have kept quite a lot of the image white and the background and flowers too.

I have just added a little colour of blue highlights and carried that on with the feathers and embossed layer. I hope you like this and pop over for some more lovely inspiration from my team members and possibly join in to have a chance at winning a lovely prize.

Christmas Past

This was a card I made just before Christmas but I went away for Christmas this year so I will share it with you now. It was sadly my last card as part of the DT for Through the Craft Room Door, a short lived membership due to changes than have taken a lot of my spare time.

I've coloured him with Polychromos pencils and added some 3d snow past.

It also includes a sheet of Kanban Patterned card, die cut snowflakes and a dotty ribbon and bow.
A very cute image from The Stamping Boutique.
