Moon Dreamer

Moon Dreamer - Today's challenge at Sew Many Challenges is eyelets. I nice, easy challenge.
For my card, I used Tayla Looking at Moon. You can get this image here. I love how it is just him and a pumpkin gazing at the wonder of a full moon. This makes me think of my husband, who is in Iraq. He is an avid night sky gazer. Which seems really odd; as he usually goes to bed quite early. LOL

My DP is Alleghany by K and Company. My image is colored with Copics.
This week we have an additional sponsor and that is the fabulous Whimsie Doodles. They gave us some images to play with. I used the Have a seat set. I chose to use just this chair and sentiment image, but they have included all kinds of little things that can be added, such as an end table and a pitcher of lemonade.
My DP is Deja View's Timeless. and I used a Spellbinders, Fleur De Lis Accents. It reminds me of a picture on the wall.

I so enjoyed coloring this image. It was all about adding depth. This would also be a great image to paper piece.

For my last card, I used this week's dollar deal, Butterfly Ribbon.

My DP is K and Company's Berry Sweet. I fussy cut the image, then shaped a little with an embossing tool and added wire to give the butterfly some antennas. The black cardstock was embossed with a CB folder and I added some black pearls with my Viva Decor pearl pen.

For this card, like most of my cards, I dig through my scraps first. I have a little trick that I do with my scraps to share with you. I tape a strip of paper to the inside back of my paper pads, making a pocket. I then store all my scraps for that pad in the pocket. I now have all of my coordanating paper together and I can look through there first, instead of cutting a new sheet of paper. It also helps me to be able to name the paper brand on my posts.
