I had the pleasure of working with  

  I made a shaker card and used Sparkle Sequins for that extra glitter. DP is from Recollections and CS is American Crafts. I used Circle and Beaded Circles from Spellbinders and Sizzix Sentiment for the die cuts. Finished it with bling and flowers from my stash. 

I colored the image with SN markers and Prismacolor pencils. Used White Gellyroll marker to look like beads in her hair- I thought it was very "fairy". LOL!

Also used a Silver Glitter Gellyroll Marker for more glitter on her wings. 
This reminded me I am still NOT a fan of fussy cutting. LOL! But it worked here and I layered half of her with pop- dots to match the Shaker piece depth.

http://meljensdesignsdt.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenges



For Challenge #236 our challenge is

Hot Chocolate
(use brown on your card)

Since I'm still scrambling to get my Christmas Cards done, I went with a Christmas theme this challenge.:o)
 
  I love pink and brown together so it was perfect for the "Hot Chocolate" Challenge!

DP is from Recollections and CS from American Crafts. 

I colored the image with SN Markers and Moon Dust Gellyroll Marker on the fur trim. White Gellyroll Marker was used for highlights and the freckles. I used Stickles on the dots and swirls for dimension. I inked around the image to soften it up with Pink from Martha Stewarts Crafts.

I finished it off with Leaves Die from Memory Box for the Corner Holly leaves, bling and ribbon from my stash. I used an Annette Allen Watkins Sentiment in Memento's Potter's Clay to keep with the color palette.
