And my third and final entry in the Allsorts Birthday Challenge

Digi Tuesday: #21 ATG
Pattie's Creations Challenge: #158 Birthday's

     For this card, I actually started with an image that was a scene. I had even stenciled clouds on it, but to my dismay I got ink on it and couldn't salvage it. So I cut the llama out and discarded the rest. I chose my paper, and decided on a layout.  I stamped the sentiment and put it on a red          background and popped it up with pop up dots. I added red sequins, rick rack, and a flower and called it finished.

Second card for Allsorts 10yr Birthday Challange and Paper Shelter,Birthday Girl challenge, with their image.

For this card I printed my Paper Shelter Image and colored it with Copics. I chose my paper and ribbon and assembled it. This little pooch in a cup was so fun to color. I hope you like it.

This card was inspired by the challenge at Allsorts. They are celebrating 10 years of Challenges and they have some awesome prizes.
I wanted something bright and floral so this is what I came up with.  A friend bought me an adult coloring book with illustrations by Margaret Feinberg. I tore out a page and cropped part of the image to a manageable size and colored it with Copics.  The sentiment, I believe is by Stampabilities. I hope you like it.

Here is a side step dresser card. This was my challenge to my friend Glenda. We are having so much fun challenging each other. It helps keep those creative juices flowing. I hope you enjoy my card.

It was brought to my attention that I didn't follow the rules to be eligible to win in one of the challenges I entered. So in an attempt to remedy that I would like to share with you how I constructed my card.
First I chose the two different patterned papers. Then I stamped my images and fussy cut them. I actually drew the tutu and the ballet shoes, then colored them with Copics and fussy cut them as well. I popped up the drawers with double sided Scotch foam tape and added a piece of lace to the bottom drawer. Then I added my embellishments and stamped my sentiment.
