Isabella's Challenge - for Mom

Hi! I am very excited today - it's my first card for Isabella's Challenge. This week we are all creating cards for Mom - it doesn't have to be for Mother's Day,  just something for mother.

Well, of course I had to color up this Mother's Little Helper image the moment I saw it!

I used Copics for coloring and Sakura pens for highlighting. The bowl was covered in Crackle Accents and the chocolate fudge cake batter (yes, I KNOW what she's bakin'. I'm talented like that.) in the bowl with Glossy Accents.

The gorgeous dp is from MME. Yeah, nothing new here. It's NOT from Quite Contrary collection though, so there! :p 

The bow is not ribbon though, it's actually a stuff that's meant for knitting but I thought it looked fabulously vintagey. Then I made a lace flower to sit on top and sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer sparkle mist. The gems are from Prima.

The sentiment stamp is from Little Paper Shop and image is cut with me Nesties Labels. Loving Nesties. And I have a scary collection! And of course a punch from MS. Gotta love them!

All in all I'm quite happy with the card, maybe I should have used solid card for matting but I think busy mish-mash of patterns kinda works on this card.

Now that I've shown off my goods you are perfectly free to head to Isabella's Challenge blog and look at all the gorgeous work the rest of DT has come up (makes me cower in shame all that talent, it does!). And then get yourself some Isabella art and get crackin', we WANT to see your wonderful creations! Pleeeaaaase!

Isabella also has a freebie available on the blog so you can "try before you buy"!

I would like to enter that card into following challenges:

Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - flowers

Stamptacular Sunday - Celebration for Moms

Cute Card Thursday - Make Your Own

Digital Tuesday - A Toast To You

The Pink Elephant - Mommy, I Love You!

Double Dutch - Mum's The Word

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs

Annika
