I used SKdigis Talking Bird image to create this fun card. The card base is from Studio G that I picked up at Michaels. I colored the bird with copics, the flower and flower center is a SVG cut from My Scrap Chick, I covered the base with washi tape, embossed the flower and inked it with orange ink...it's kinda hard to see, for some reason it didn't photograph well... I printed out the sentiment...think Verizon commercial and added some ribbon. Believe me, it looks better in person! ;)

Our sponsor over at Critter Sketch for August is Digi Doodle Shop which is where this adorable dragon came from. I totally LOVE dragons, mystical creatures, fairy tales and anything in that genre. That's why I couldn't turn down the chance to use another cute Louis image. Just love him!
I colored with copics, used my silver glitter pen for his net, toes, and scales. The punched butterflies are from my Martha Stewart punch and just added some bling. Also added primas and brads, some ribbon and matted it all on paper in my scrap stash. The pink words are from Cosmo Cricket-Tiny Type. I'm giving this card to my mom, she just had a birthday! Happy Birthday MOM!! :)

Our challenge over at Critter Sketch is "Round it Up" we want to see circles! Our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop and I chose to use this darling dragon (love dragons) picking daisies, one of my favorite flowers!! I embossed the grey paper with my an embossing folder to give the feel of dragon scales, colored with copics, used some primas and brads and then ribbon, I love this dragon and can't wait to color up another one! Please join our challenge, stop over at Digi Doodle Shop and browse all their wonderful images, I'm sure there is something there that will catch your eye!
A little note about our sponsor!
Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy
Hope you join our challenge and show off those circles!! Can't wait to see what you make!

This challenge our sponsor is Fresh Brewed Designs, I chose to work with the Fairy Sweet image. I LOVE all things fantasy, medieval and mystical, I even have a collection of dragon figures and the dragon statue from Dragonheart. I love The Lord of the Rings and am really looking forward to The Hobbit. I love reading that genre of books and am kind of a geek/dork when it comes to wizards, elves, knights, fairies, dwarves, etc...I fully accept that!! ;)
Anyway here is my card, colored with copics, glittered the mushroom spots, glossy accents on the heart, used the Party charm from my stash. Used some scrap papers for the borders and die cut the image with spellbinders and my cuttlebug.
I added some of the same elements with the paper borders on the inside. I think this little fairy is just adorable!
I am entering the following challenges:
+Crafty Catz-All that Glitters
Tammys Scrappin Corner-Anything Goes
The Paper Playtime-Anything Goes
Crazy Amigo Challenge-Dies or punches
