Magical Monday - 3 In a Row

OK... I totally spaced doing my personal blog posting!  I thought about it around 4:30 today and then got side tracked cleaning up the paint cans everywhere and then made dinner.  Guess what?  Yeah, I just thought about it... so here it is short and sweet!

The challenge this week is "3 in a row" at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog; There's Magic In The Air. This week Danie May wants us to pick 3 elements from the below grid that are in a row, can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal and incorporate them into your card or project.

I decided to use one of the new images over at Paper Cupcakes "Girl with Umbrella".  I must say I really liked this image!  Even though you really can't tell I cut the umbrella out and placed it on pop up dots so it is more 3_D.  I used my color pencils to color the image and used some stickles on the green lines on the umbrella.  The stickles is much prettier in real life; wish you could see it.  I did a fairly large image, since this image seemed to be long and narrow I didn't really want it to be small... so I went big and I really liked how it turned out.  I did the grid across the top.  So I used punches; butterfly & border.  Ribbon and two pattern papers.  I also inked the edges of the image with a cat eye chalk.  It really is a pretty simple and clean card, but it works really nicely with this image which I wanted to stand out. 

Had a really busy weekend, but nice and certainly not enough time to be everywhere and do everything we wanted to do this holiday weekend.  Thanks for lurking by and I hope you always take a little creativity away from visiting.  Have a great week!!

This is another one of your new images I just love Nina. Your card is so pretty I love the colors and the way you added glitter to the umbrella. It looks pretty good in the photo so can only imagine how good it looks in real life. Have a great week! xx
