Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz Challenges

After being on a leave of absence from The Outlawz for the last two months, I am excited to be back again.  We have a new sponsor for the month of May as well as a new sketch for the week:

Our sponsor this month is:
artbymiran  The prize will be 3 digis

My card features a Penny Black image from a set called Flower Festival which is colored with copic markers.  I made the background with Distress Inks applied to cardstock and then spritzed with water which had some Perfect Pearls added to it.  Not sure if you can tell that the shimmer is there?  In person, I love the affect this gives.

Hope that you will stop by The Outlawz and see the creations which my sister DT members have made and perhaps give this sketch a try yourself.


Deborah's Card Challenge

Last month I participated in Deborah Nolan's April Card Chain Challenge. Each month Deborah allows cardmakers to sign up to exchange cards and we can choose from the parameters given as to how to put the card together.  Participants are from all of the world.  How neat is that to send a card to a sister cardmaker and to receive one as well?  My card went to England and here is what I made for the lovely Jo in Birmingham:

And I was fortunate enough to receive a gorgeous card from my online friend, Lisa.  This surely makes one day to get a hand made card in the mail, especially when we are usually the ones who do the sending of our cards!
