Cathrine Visits the Islands

Happy Thursday!!
The card I have today is the card I made for the sketch challenge over at Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design. This was a fun challenge with a tropical twist. Susana has the most awesome store on the planet. You should visit if you haven't already been there.

I decided to use the lovely Cathrine with Butterfly stamp from the Anki's Sweethearts line from Susana's. I replaced the butterfly she was holding with a colorful parrot by Jolee's. I also added a flower to her hat.

I also added some flowers, ribbon, brads and spacers and it turned into this cute card!! I cut Cathrine out with my nesties of course. How did we live before these were invented??? I colored her with my Copics and added highlights with my white gel pen. How did we live before Copics were invented??? Hmmmmm, I don't know!! LOL!


I hope you like my colorful card and I thank each of you for stopping by my blog today. I feel blessed to have you come by. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what I've made for you to see! I'll see you then!
