pick me ...

Click on any photo for a close up. My entry today is for four challenges.

I used this week's sketch at Sketch Saturday.

At Creative Inspirations the challenge is to use 'letters or numbers'. I have used 'pick me ...'.

At Gingersnap Creations ~ Once In a Blue Moon Challenge we are required to combine two or more of their previous challenges. I chose GC06: Gardening with GC16: Ribbon.

Finally, I am entering this into the Moxie Fab World 'gradient is radiant' challenge (my second time participating, so hope it is allowed!).

Here is what I came up with:

The patterned papers are from the Prima ~ Angelique collection. I used Angel Breathe and Harp.

I used my EK Success ~ Binding Edge edger punch and distressed the edges of the paper.

The image is Leanne Ellis ~ Pick Me. I coloured her with my copics, inked the edges and then covered the entire piece with Ranger ~ Crackle Accents.

I added some paper rose buds to the buttons at the top.

At the bottom, I added some ribbon to a buckle and put a pink gem in the middle.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone who visited my blog left a message. Then I could come visit you and get to know you. How cool would that be?

Thank you for looking.
