You are Beautiful Inside and Out

Hi Everyone - I have two cards to share today!!  Both are for challenges over on SCS.

To make the first card I stamped SU's Garden in Bloom on a whisper white textured card base, then stamped the Grunge dots to fill in some of the white space.  Next I stamped and die-cut the Butterfly elements and moved on to the sentiment tag.  Last steps were adding the 'doodled' butterfly tail/flourish along with the sequins, glitter and white gel pen.

The main inspiration for this card came from today's Featured Stamper Debra aka pdncurrier on SCS. Her gallery is filled with so much inspiration - she is amazing!  Here's a photo of the full card:

Additional inspiration came from Satruday's IC Challenge - the website was  I was definitely inspired by so many of the items I saw there.  Here's one more photo from a different angle:

My second card is also for today's FS.  I used my Chameleon markers and for the first time I blended multiple colors together on the same image.  Up until now I've used only one marker per image - blending the one color to get many different shades.

I love how easy these markers are to use - and after using them only a few times I'm starting to get the hang of them.  This flower took some time to color, but I love how it came out.  Here's another photo:

Hello Audrey! These cards are both so beautiful. :-)
It's been a while since I've made any kind of blog visits, and I just wanted to say hello.

I still have - and love to look at - a birthday card you made for me years ago, with a seashore theme. You do such gorgeous, detailed work.

Take care, and hugzzz!
