Isabella's Challenge #14

Over this past holiday weekend I was one of the winners at Isabella's Sketchbook. They held their first Blog Hop and it was so wonderful! I was double lucky, since I won 2x. Woo Hoo! Her images are just so beautiful and fun to color!

Isabella asked for me to show her what I made with them and since her challenge this week is "Anything Goes", I just had to enter! My first image is called Garden Gate, and I chose it as one of my prizes, because I thought it would be really versatile. I see using this for Sympathy, Anniversary, Thank You, or just to say I Love You.

My papers are from K&Co. I colored with Copics and sponged with VersaMagic inks. My image was cut out with Nestabilities Label 11 and I used an MS punch to make my fancy edging. I thought it was the perfect time to add one of my sugared Prima roses and some felt leaves. There is even a bit of pink grosgrain ribbon on there. The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs.

Hope you had a great weekend. If you are still off, horray for you! If you are heading back to work, please keep cool! We are expecting 100 degrees today, and it sure is not going to be pretty. Camping in the stamp room sounds perfect to me.
