Time to Go!

Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful morning. We are spending the day at my parents. I just love family time! :o)

I had such a great time making this card. The image was so much fun to color. As much as I love all Saturated Canary's images I believe this one is my favorite. Her gorgeous hair and beautiful face. I adore her.

I cut the flap off of a kraft envelope to make my holder. I boarder punched a strip of kraft cardstock using a Martha Stewart punch and adhered it to the inside of the pocket. Tied a ribbon all the way around the pocket and adhered a jewelry finding and glitter brad.

The paper is from Recollections. The gems are from Inky Impressions

I created a tag using kraft cardstock. I boarder punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch and adhered a piece of DP from Recollections. Didtressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distresser and inked the edges with Walnut ink from Martha Stewart. I Stapled a piece of red ribbon to the tag. The sentiment is from Hero Arts which I got from Simon Says Stamp.

I used Copics to color.

I am playing in the following challenges. I hope you will play along too. I love seeing everyone's beautiful creations.

DYSU: tags or flags
