Mo's Digital Pencil - Marion

Hiyah everyone!  How are you on this Sunday afternoon?  The family and I have spent the day trying to put our house in order, not so easy to do with 2 kids and 3 cats running around, and then we went on a little shopping trip to Kohl's.  I had a 30% off coupon that I was just dying to use, so of course we did!  Everyone got a little something, including some back to school items for my daughter.  I can't believe how fast back to school is coming, it will be fall before we know it.  At least we will get a little relief from this miserable hot weather we've having all summer.

Today I am posting a card for the latest challenge over at Mo's Digital pencil, Love is in the Air.  For my project I used the MO's image, Marion.  She is loving this cute kitty as much as any little I know does.  I'm not sure how much the kitties like this squishy tight hug, but I do know that toddlers are famous for it.

I found a few new pink combos that I wanted to try on Pinterest, and you will see one of these color combos on her dress.  I must warn you, it is bright.  I mean, really bright.  I gave the dress black polka dots to try and tone down the color just a little.

I'm also entering my card into the challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Here is their sketch for this week.

And here's my card using Mo's image and following the sketch.  Again, I must warn you, I got a little "flower happy" with this one.  My corner of flowers are a little over the top, even for me.

Materials I Used on My Project:
Copic markers - RV69, RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02, C5, C3, C1, C0
Wild Orchid Flowers
Black Rhinestones
MS Border Punch
MS Frond Punch
Fiskars Corner Flourish Punch
Crystal Stickles

Here's a close up of these two colored cuties.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
