BIC32 Wild About You, CC193 Serene Spring

Happy Tuesday again!!!

Here is a quick card I made for the CC193 - Real Red, Kraft and Basic Black - this morning.

I used *Serene Spring* and colored it with some Copic and Prisma Markers.

The CB folder is from the *Leafy Branch* and I added some Silver Brads...voila!!!

Now it's time for another fun *Be Inspired* Challenge by Beate!!!

This photo just screams for a *children's* card!!!

The first idea that came to mind was my all time favorite *Wild About You* Set!!!

I used Tangerine Tango, Bashful Blue and Whisper White CS for my card. I started out by scoring my Tangerine Tango CS. Then I punched out a scallop row of Bashful Blue and attached it on the right.

Next I inked the elephant in Bashful Blue. The flower was inked in Tangerine Tango and I used an Old Olive Marker for the stem. I layered this onto Bashful Blue CS and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals. I also added a bit of Dazzling Diamond Glitter in the center of the flower and some Silver Brads on the bottom of the TT panel. The sentiment was inked in Old Olive and I pierced right below it.

Hope you like my simple take on the Inspiration Piece??? Before you go please check out all the other ladies for their samples on the room - Beate Johns, Charmaine Ikach, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck and Susan Roberts.

Have a good one and play along!!! ~TFL~

It's the little details on your simple card that make it great. the paper piercing under the sentiment, and the scored lines on the Tango CS. It'sa very cute card. TFS!

Hi Silke... Thanks for the complements on my blog and SCS! At noon I realized the color challenge was today and got busy this afternoon creating... It just so happened I was home today!

I LOVE your challenge cards! Your coloring and CB embossing is fantastic on the CC193. The Wild About You card is ADORABLE... your scoring gives such fun detail to this card. Plus the “whimsy” is the scallops. Colors are awesome. Smiles... Michelle :)
