Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #182



Hello there, blog friends ~
It's time for another fun challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! This week, our theme is 'Make Your Mark', so get out those Copic, Distress, and Zig markers or colored pencils and watercolors, and show us what you've got!  We have two Sponsors (Robyn's Fetish and QKR Stampede), and each is offering three digital images from their store:





When I saw This Card created by my super talented blog friend, Loll, I was so inspired, that I grabbed my biggest floral stamp, silver EP, and my 'Ziggies', and got to work...
Here is my card:




I used the yellow and light green markers, then added shadows with orange and dark green, just to give it some depth. I also allowed the one leaf to extend off the edge, as I'll be sending this card in my PTI Bulk Mail Envelope.

So, come on over to the Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge Blog to see what my teamies have created, and play along with us!

I am also entering this card in Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge.



Thanks so much for stopping by...have a great week ~

Lovely coloring Bard, love the Use EP, and the scallop frame is a perfect choice for the frame. Sorry to not stop by in a long time, had computer issues big time, was posting cards, but commenting was not done much...getting back now.
