Challenge #14--It's All About Love--Sarah's Turn

Hello everyone!! Happy February!! Now I bet you were expecting Crissy today! I have now taken over her spot as blog coordinator so I will be posting today and on the first of every month from now on. Don't worry though, Crissy is still hard at work creating her beautiful images and she will be popping in now and again to share her beautiful cards & colouring tips!! Stay tuned tomorrow for some exciting new announcements too!!!

Now on to this month's challenge!! It's all about LOVE!! For my card, I used Crissy's digi image "Baby Elephant" from Squigglefly!! For you diehard rubber fans you can also find this image at Whimsy Stamps in deeply etched rubber under the name "Jellybean"!! I coloured the image using Copic markers (C00, C1, C2, C4, C6, RV000, RV10, R20). I coloured the image twice for the front and cut out the second image and popped him up to give my card a little more dimension.

The inside...

And a close-up of the artwork...

For more details on my card go to sallycicadadesigns.blogspot.com


Now it's your turn!! Let's see what "LOVELY" ideas you all can come up with!! You will see how to upload you cards at the bottom of this post.

There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's digi images will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

Here are the winners of Crissy's Artist Choice Award, for last month's challenge using ribbons, in no particular order. These are cards that caught my eye for one reason or another, that I felt were the most impressive from the bunch! Ladies, don't forget to pick up you blog award badge on the sidebar for shining this month!!
