I managed to miss the deadline of two progressive challenges by about 10 minutes as yesterday turned to custard somewhat!

I'm not taking any chances today and uploading this one before I head off to work.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Deedee's Digi of the Month

I have used a paper from Kaisercraft.  The image is from Deedee's Designs.  I have used copic markers for the colouring of the image and the ribbon roses.  I also added some lace from Sullivans.

Bucket of Flowers

February is such a hectic month for me.  I am now scrambling to complete the cards for the progressive challenges!

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Progressive Challenge - February

I have used a paper from a paper pad from Rosie's Studio.  The image is the freebie image from the progressive challenge at The Outlawz and is by Sandi Samples. I coloured using copic markers and then added Kindy Glitz to the heart.  The frame around the image is a Sizzix die cut from gold paper. I coloured some ribbon flowers using copic marker YR02  and added these along with some pearls to the top of the card.  I also added some dots made with Kindy Glitz under the image.

I have used mainly creams and browns with some touches of yellow and pink for this card:

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
QKR Stampede - Critters
CHNC - Include a creature
Completely Christmas - No Red or Green

I have used a paper from a Christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I coloured the word Christmas with copic marker RV21.  The image is from QKR Stampede and has been colorued with copic markers E53, E51, R000, RV06, YR23.  I die-cut using a Spellbinders die.  I also added a brad and some pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Gift Bag

I decided to create a simple gift bag.  I didn't want it too fussy as the paper I used for it is fairly lightweight.

I would like to enter my gift bag into these challenges:
Brown Sugar - Bag or Box or Tags
Lacy Sunshine - Things with Wings

I have used some lightweight cardstock from Rosie's Studio to make the bag.  I used the gift box creator from WR Memory Keepers.  The image is from Lacy Sunshine and has been coloured with copic markers R59, R46, E00 E35, E31, G28, G21, R22, R20.  I added some butterfly stickers and drew flight trails with Distress marker - Picket Fence.

Distressing time at Incy Wincy Designs

It's time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs and this week we are looking for distressing on your cards.  You can find the details of the challenge here - along with some inspiration from the Design Team.

This week we are sponsored by Aurora Wings:

I have used Baby Owl Trio from Aurora Wings.

I'm not sure how obvious my distressing is from this photo.  I tore the edge of the paper on the left hand side and I also distressed the edges of the image using a combination of scissors and Distress Ink.

I have also used papers from Kiasercraft along with a layered flower and pearl and some bakers twine.
