PIP Challenge 2408

Get ready to head over to the current
We are going to miss this amazing sponsor

This will be their last sponsorship because
they want to enjoy some retirement time.
But PIP Challenges was blessed to have 
their sponsorship for the past few years!
They are offering the random challenge
winner a $6 prize!
Here's my card using a wonderful
Jan's Digi image.
I love this butterfly frame image. I cut it
out twice so I could add dimension to 
one of the butterflies. I colored it with 
Copic markers and added clear sparkle
pen to the butterflies for a touch of bling.
It's a very pretty card and that's because 
of the stunning image. I just matched
my coloring to coordinate the background
papers. Very simple and a wonderful finish.

Thanks for stopping by! 
A big thank you to our amazing sponsor,

Jan's Digi Stamps

Head over to the current challenge now.

PIP Challenge 2407

 Another great challenge over at PIP Challenges
with our lovely sponsor
Varada Sharma
VS has such beautiful images! It's 
awesome that she is kind enough to sponsor 
PIP Challenges! Please be sure to visit her site
or find her actual stamps at RubberStamps.com!!
 Here's my card for this week!

These two cards were pretty easy and 
coloring is always fun for me. I used
Copic Markers for the coloring and 
a Brothers Scan n Cut to have it cut out.
I used an oval die cut for the center to
raise up the image. Not sure where I 
got the sentiment from but VS has
many awesome sentiments to choose
from. Sadly, I needed 2 sympathy cards.
