We're feeling the LOVE this month . . .

on the My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog!

Yes, it's time for another challenge with us at the
My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog

Our challenge for February is
February Challenge #44 - Anything Goes

Remember:  You can participate with ANY project; altered, scrapbooking pages, cards, and anything you can think of.  If you have My Besties images, that would be ideal, but you can use any kind of stamps or digital stamps.  And also remember: You are playing for My Besties digital Stamps!


Today I had the pleasure of colouring and creating with the super cute
Sherri Baldy's My Besties img082 digital stamp to make an A5 birthday card filled with love.

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set, coloured with Copic markers, trimmed down to size and matted with black cardstock, using my Perfect Layers Ruler to trim it down neatly to a 1/16" border.

I punched a leafy border from black cardstock, then added a patterned paper panel, topping it off with the image panel on a matted an A5 top folding card base.

I punched little leafy branches and tucked them under some paper roses then added a "with love" sentiment.  I die cut two sentiments, one in black, the other in white, which I coloured with the same pink Copic markers as the flower in her hair.

The sentiment doesn't really POP as much as I had hoped, so I think I will be adding some more layers and dimension, maybe even some sparkle too.
... watch this space ... I think a change is coming!

NOW it's YOUR turn!
I hope that I have inspired you to get creative with your
My Besties (or other branded) images and make a project to enter the
