PIP Challenge 2222

Polkadoodles is this week's sponsor!! YAY!

Be sure to pop over and see all the fabulous digis, stamps and supplies that they have!  Go check them out now!

We REALLY appreciate them!
AND since it's a 5th Monday of the month
there is a theme and it's a color theme...
Here's my card...
I had a lot of fun with the color theme. First
I went on line and found a colorful image 
that I saved. Then I added the PNG image
on top. I colored the little gnome with 
Copics in coordinating colors. I put some
white dots on the package ribbon and
white dashes to the balloons before I added
some clear lacquer. A touch of sparkle to
perk up the tiny red heart. 
I used a pretty die cut from Crafter's 
Companions and wove some matching
ribbon. I added a fabric flower. Using
a banner die cut with the added sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

and layered it onto some digital paper to make
my background. The cute little hen was 
colored with Copic and fussy cut. I added it
to the card with mounting tape for the dimension
needed to complete the card. Be sure to
