I couldn't resist coloring the new release image for February, titled "My Prince". I created an over the top Valentine's card. I made a gate fold card and added rhinestones, silver studs, and pearl hearts. You know how when you stare at the lights of an oncoming car while driving at night, the glare will blind you. My card when seen in direct light will have a similar effect LOL:). I added lots of die cuts, dimentionals and ribbon.
I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge for inspiration. I also participated in the Digital Tuesday Challenge of making something Valentine's related and I also participated in the Creative Belli Blog of using jewels and Stamptacular Sunday by using hearts.
Make sure to check out the Elisabeth Bell Digital Store. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next month!

This week's challenge at MelJens is to make a tag. I love a tag challenge. They are wonderful to add to gifts, maybe even for your Valentine:)
I used several of MelJens new images, called "Little Cupid", "XOXO Stitches", "Lacy Panties", "Little Brazier", and "V-Day Boxers" and colored them with Copic Markers. I used DP from K&Co. and cardstock from PTI. I added dimentionals, heart jewels, red jewels, tiny clothes pins and raffia string.

I made a shadowbox card so that I could incorporate the little clothes pins in my design. I love the way all the different images compliment eachother:)
Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.
