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!!
