Rainbow Card

Hello fellow crafters, hope everyone is having a great day! Yay, I have another card to share with you guys today! I made this card to enter into a few challenges. Its a spring card:) Im so ready for spring to hit in full bloom in California:)lol.

All the papers I used on my card were from my scrap drawer, yay me:)lol. Im proud of how my card turned out. I think it has a great spring feeling to it (thats what I was going for lol). Like how a nice spring day would be with a rainbow out:)
I used Sketchy Friday's sketch #14 for the layout of my card.

Markers and Inks used
To color in the rainbow I used regular Crayola markers.To color the cute little girl, I used my Spectrum Noir markers, PL2, LV2, LG3, CG4, GG1, BP1, CR2, TN3, and TN4.  
I love, love, love, Emma's (My Creative Time) stamps. Her stamps and dies are Fabulous! I used a few of her sets in this card. The clouds are diecuts from the "Fly Away With Me Dies" set. The sentiment I stamped on the clouds are from My Creative Time's "Fly away with Me Sentiments" stamp set. The cute little girl I colored in, is from the "Fly Away With Me" stamp set and I used the flower background stamp from "Spring Chicken Backgrounds" on my purple cardstock.  

A few close ups

My rainbow came from Peachy Keen's  PKSC-02 February 2012 club stamp of the month set. Gotta love Peachy Keen stamps, they are my all time favorite, those and My Creative Time for Me stamps, I just can't get enough of them:)lol.

One to many Martinies Card

Hello fellow crafters! Hope everyone is doing good. I have a quick post today. I wanted to share a card I made for my cousin who will be turning 21 this weekend. We're going to go to Vegas to celebrate her birthday so I thought this card would fit the occasion:)

I used Peachy Keen's Photo Inspiration for the colors on my card and also for the theme of my card. When I saw the photo inspiration, I got a tropical drink feel:)lol.

What do you think, tropical drink feel or what?:)lol

I also used Sketch and Stash's sketch  for my card layout.

For the cute little tropical drinks I used Peachy Keen's PK-105 Happy Hour stamp set. For the cute sentiment and martini glass I used Peachy Keen's  PKSC-12 December 2012 stamp club set.
I colored the tropical drinks with regular Crayola markers, and for my Martini glass I used Tim Holtz Distress markers and the water brush.

I used Firefly and Tropical Tangerine Stickles, and this awesome "The Home Spun" paper stack by DCWV. Love this paper, its so cute and all the sheets have texture. Really pretty in person:) 

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
