It's Sassy Tuesday--Sassy Cheryl's Challenge!!!

Our hostesss for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week is my friend, the super talented, Peggy Marsh who chose an inspiration challenge.  I have only done a couple of inspiration challenges and they are becoming a little less intimidating.  Here is my card using LadyBug Lady:

I colored the darling image with copic markers and airbrushed the sky and masked in the clouds.  I chose to use the colors of the inspiration picture.  The upper right corner of the main image was punched with a MS ladybug corner punch and then the ladybug was colored with copic markers so that the punched ladybug would show up against the pink background.
The dp is from a K and Company paper pack and has all of the quilt colors in it.  The flower cs was run through the cuttlebug script folder and then cut with the cricut Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge.  My ladybug button in the flower center was blue and purple to start with so I colored it with copic markers to be a true colored ladybug and match the rest of the ladybugs on the picture.
Here is the inspiration picture, did I come a little close?


This was a really fun challenge.  Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT has to show you and how the photo inspired them.   Then grab an image and play along with us.  Did you know that next month, Sassy Cheryl's is celebrating the 1 year Anniversary of the Challenge Blog.  I have loved every minute of being on the DT with this awesomely talented group of ladies.!

Be sure to stop by the Sassy Cheryl's store too as she may just have some new images for you

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,
Cathy
