MDUC #130

Use Your National Flag

This week at MDUC we're using our national flag!  At first I thought this was gonna be boring because of course, I only have 2 colors to play with.  WRONG!  Also, not to mention it's right before Valentine's so guess what?!!  A 2-fer-1!!  hee hee! :)

So instead of a card I thought I'd play with a Valentine's project.  I'm thinking there may be more of these coming but when I do that I end up eating the leftover chocolates.  That's baaaad!!  But yummy.  LOL!!

Aren't the ribbons cute?  I used the tutorial from Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings but the only thing I did different was I added a little bit of hairspray to them.  hee hee  

I'm so excited about my coloring on this image.  I watched Make It Crafty's tutorial on folds and also took tips from the Magnolia Ink "Sweet Christmas Dreams|" magazine.  I did make a few mistakes but being that it was my first time I was pretty happy with the fact that I colored a useable image.  LOL!!

 You should see some of the other cards the ladies at MDUC made.  I am sooo glad my colors weren't what some of theirs were.  Talk about challenging but they did really well!

I'm going to enter into the Magnolia-licious Highlites valentine inspired contest for a chance to win 2 images from the new Sweet Crazy Love collection.  You still have 10 days to enter this one if you'd like a chance too.

Your coloring is amazing, especially the folds on her dress. Will have to try that color comb you used. This is a gorgeous card with beautiful details. So glad you are back!! "Hugs"

You're hilarious, eating all the chocolate!!! I told my daughter that she is the best Valentine's present I ever got, but previous to her birth, my boyfriend and eventual husband phoned to tell me he bought me a tin of fudge for V-day, but he would have to replace the fudge 'cause he ate it all! Ailis thought that was soooo funny (but it's pretty typical of him, too!) Anyway, I saw that tutorial too, but I haven't given it a try - you did a fabulous job, I can't see any mistakes, she's GORGEOUS!!! Love the ribbons, too, I'll have to check out that link, thanks a bunch! Hugs, Rox.

I love your little project, it's so beautiful! Unfortunately, the Card Makin' Mamas challenge only focuses on cards, so your make doesn't qualify this time :( Hope to see you back again though! :)
