YNS Fun Friday: You make my heart sing!

TGIF everyone! I am here to share my Fun Friday creation with you all. August will be wrapping up before we know it, so be sure to play along with us over at the YNS Blog. I used the super pretty digital stamp called "Blossom Birds" for todays card.
I used both this months Inspirational photo and Sketch for my cards layout.

I choose my colors based on the Inspirational photo, I thought that purple flowers would be a perfect match. I wanted to make the flowers look like pansies, my grandmas favorite <3 I colored everything using my Spectrum Noirs markers. I am hoping my first order of Copics will be here tomorrow, so I can start mixing and matching markers.
Be sure to go see what the other YNS design team members created for their projects!
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day/weekend!

Tiddly Inks DT Call Submission :)

Hello Everyone, hope you all had a great day to start off your week! I decided to throw my name in the hat, among the many other talented designers for the Tiddly Inks  design team call. I have two cards I created to showcase and share with you all.
For my first card, I used the super sweet digital stamps,"Berrylicious" & "Handwritten & Doodled Sentiments".
I colored this cutie in with my Spectrum Noirs

The little "Handwritten Doodled Sentiment", I turned into a flair piece, using my button machine. I like how it pops of the card and gives it that extra touch.
My clouds were created by using a cloud template and my Tim Holtz(tumbled glass) distress ink.
Papers came from my scrap bin, I love when I can use up those scraps!
Other embellishments include:
