My Newest Card

I just finished this card in time for a birthday in February.  I used the Saturday Sketch for January for the Michael Strong group.  I also tried to follow Nicol Magouirk ideas on how to photograph your cards and LayOuts for the web.  This was a Webinar offered by Lain Ehmann.  Really a great Webinar and I learned lots.

The finished card.  And like Nicol suggested to put some of the used supplies with the picture to make it more attractive.

A close up of the stamp I used on the base card.  I used versamark to stamp the image.  The flowers I made by colouring some white card stock and punch them out.  Applied Glossy Accents to give it a 'button' look.

Close up of the largest tulip.  I used Sakura pens to colour the image and then highlighted the black lines with a glitter Sakura pen.

Time for another LayOut

This layout is called SC47 and is a challenge put on by Soul Scrappers.  We had to work from a sketch but I first was able to make a template in PSE and after I created the LO.  Pictures are my own and the paper and embellishments are from Donna's Digital Designs called Walk in the Woods.
Photos are of a Pine Grosbeak and Common Red Poll

My first digital scrapbook page with PSE

After posting my sunset photos on my 'camera' blog I decided to use the January sketch for the Scrap Happy group to make a digital scrap page.  I am pleased with the way it turned out and love the colours.
Thank you for checking this page out and also my other blog with the full photos of the sunset.
