Michelle Perkett Studio Emma

Today I get to share my Michelle Perkett Studio challenge card that I was going to make but the rolled flower die I ordered didn't arrive in time.  The die was in my mail box Tuesday afternoon just like I thought!  Funny how life works that way and challenges us to use plan B sometimes.

For my card today I used Emma the Amore Fairy and colored her with my favorite colors of Copic markers (BG10 & BG11), I printed her nice and big so she'd be easy to color and trimmed around her to keep the frame she's in.  She's matted in basic black, I used a couple of my Cuttlebug embossing folders for some nice texture, Happy Anniversary is on a Spellbinders tag die and the sentiment was made on my computer.  The leaves are a Quickutz die and the little flower is part of the My Favorite Things Stamps rolled rose die.  The die makes a pretty large flower so I only used part of it to try to get more of the look of Emma's flowers. 

You still have time to get in on the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio, just use one of Michelle's images and make your own flowers and you can enter to win a prize that will be drawn Monday, October 18th!

Jan, I can see why you were disappointed that the flower diecutter had not come in earlier. The flower is gorgeous, as is your coloring. I love the pink and blue-green together. Thanks for joining us at MPS.
