Friday Sketch #67, Just Magnolia Week #20, The Pink Elephant #30

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. I do.

Oh, I am thrilled and honoured to find that I was one of five selected to receive a "Remarkables award" from the Midnight Madness Challenge #16. Wow, what a suprise to find this especially when I didn't expect I would win anything. I felt honorable of getting it. Thank you so much for the challenge and I enjoy playing it everytime.

I had a day off from work today, so how could I resist doing some cards?? Today, I made two cards. My first card was finished for 3 challenges and the second card (Please scroll down for that) I made for fun.

The three challenges are for:
Friday Sketcher #67 - I used it's sketch

Just Magnolia Weekly Challenge #20
- Ribbons & bows

The Pink Elephant Challenge #30
- 1 Ribbon, 2 Squares and something that sparkles

Friday Sketcher's sketch this week:

Here is my finished card:

Closer view on the image. Did you notice the bunny's cheek has a little spot? When I took my copic marker for a touch up on Tilda's shirt, it slipped off my hand and landed on my poor bunny's face :o( Yikes.....I tried to use the colorless copic to clean it a little and then touch up again with the "E21" and "R11" to cover the spot.

I bought some bulk buttons the other day and used them for this card.

Here is the bow top with a little button

Here is a post for my second card. I made it for fun.
I got this image from my friend who said she doesn't know what to do with it. I never tried to make any card with this kind of stamps before, so I thought maybe I would try to paint it with my Copic markers and see how it would turn out. After I painted this with my Copic markers, I felt this image was pretty impressive. Since this image is so pretty, I thought I would just do the rest of my background as plain as I could, so that the focus would be on the picture itself!

I just tied a bow and added a "family" charm

Both cards are wonderful. You did the scene looks so inviting. Your colouring is superb! Love the colour combo of Tilda and her bunny, very sweet.

Beautiful cards. Love your coloring and I never noticed any spot on the bunny.

Hi Cabio!!
Boy did I have to look hard and long to see the spot on the bunny's cheek. You didn't need to mention it at all - you did a great job to get rid of it! I love your card! You have done a ton of work on this one and it is beautiful! Nice to see the bunny Tilda used for another time than Easter.
Your scenic card is beautiful - lovingly done and I love the way you left the rest of the card plain to show off the scene so very well.
Hugs, Candy
