So, last night while I watched old episodes of "Seventh Heaven" on my computer, I gave some of those dear little images a purpose in their lives. Everyone needs a purpose, after all. Okay. This is getting weird. On to the cards.
My first card is an image by Stamp Fairy called, "Lenny". Isn't he adorable? I hopped over the their challenge blog and all I had to do to qualify was add some bling. I used some bling-a-licious stickers and a butterfly I cut from foil.
My next card is an accordion card and I can't find out who did the image. If you recognize it, please let me know so I can give credit to the artist. I paper-pieced the dress on the girl bear. My DPs are by K&C. I used an embossing folder and white embossing powder for the "Thinking of You" sentiment. I repeated a smaller image of the bears on an inside flap.
My 3rd card uses an Ellephantastic image which I have had colored up for a very long time. My DPs are by K&Company. I used my eyelet border punch (SU) to make some fancy edging and another punch (EK Success) for the border around the image. I took a picture of the card closed, so you can see that the back of the card extends beyond the front. Then I took another shot of it standing.

My final card uses a Squigglefly image and this week's sketch at The Outlawz. I have had this image for a long time and I am so glad to finally get to use it. I colored it with Prisma pencils. Then I crumpled, inked and tore the paper around the image and mounted it onto a dark brown cardstock scalloped oval. The frame is from an embossing folder. I inked the edges of the crocheted flower with SU Perfect Plum ink. It feels like it is missing something to me, but I'm too tired now to figure it out. Plus, if I add something more it may no longer adhere to the sketch.
I hope you enjoy looking at these cards and that they inspire your own creativity. These cards were rather simple and easy to make. I think it is good to simplify things sometimes.
PS - I have entered two of these cards to the Ready-Teddy-Go Autumn Colors Challenge. Thanks for the tip, Chrissy.
