One Layer Wonder

Get your Pink Cat stamps out ladies, here's another challenge hosted by the design team! This time the challenge is hosted by fellow DT member Vicki. The challenge is held over at the planet. You must create a one layer card, which is not as easy as it sounded--not for me anyway.
I like this challenge because it gets your juices flowing!! I used Lily the leaping fairy, colored her with my copics, and sponged the sky background, and used my scor-pal to create the diagonal lines on the card. I filled the center of the flower with stickles.
This next card was made for one of the High Hopes Sketches and I only had a chance to post it today. Although the challenge for this sketch is over, just thought you might want to see it anyway. I really love this stamp and how she is sewing up her teddy. This card sketch was made by Katharina. I colored my image with my copics, and got the sentiment from one ofmy CC Designs sets. I thought it was just perfect! =) I then used my cuttlebug folder to emboss a part of the card. All other parts of the card are from Stampin' Up.
I did some faux stitching, and added some bling to the area of where the words are. I also added white fun flock to create the wings and some dazzling diamonds for bling. I love how it turned out looking like it was a group of feathers.
This award came to me from Joy, thanks so much for thinking of me!! I'd like to share it with :
Thank you all for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day! =)
