I LOVE it when things come together! Guess what? See the brads in the middle of those flowers? I have had them for a little while; they are ALSO Basic Grey!! There I go with the matchy, matchy thing, again! I finished this card with some pink liquid pearls, for Mellie's icing, on the cake!! Well, I hope you will consider throwing your creation into the ring! And....I hope you like my creation! Make sure to visit their store and take a look around!

Our TEMPORARY TWINKIE, NICKY, is the OLDER son of our own Kimberlee!! His challenge to us was a COLOR challenge!! He wanted us to create a card with the colors BLUE, PURPLE, and ORANGE!! At first I was worried this would be a tough one. Then I started perusing my patterned paper!! And...if you know me?? You KNOW I own WAY to much of that stuff!!! So...after taking a gander?? It was a whole BUNCH easier!! I got to use a CUTE image, from Stamping Bella!! Aren't those Ketto's FUN?? Stop by the TWINKLE BLOG; our featured TWINKLER is Darla!!

However, I just don't have that professional flare, that you all have. So....just as I have been practicing with my Copics?? I have with my camera. It was raining today, but, it was still pretty bright outside. I took my creation outside, to try to capture a great pic that way. I ended up inside, then outside again. When I was looking at the pics on my computer, I tried to play with them a little more. Much to my excitement?? I found the contrast settings and such!! What do you know?? VOILA!!!!
