House of Cards January Challenge ...

Good Morning and Happy New Year to ALL!

Today, I have the pleasure of announcing that I was invited to join House of Cards Design Team! The fun part of being a part of this team is that I get to choose what products I use, from my stash, to create my projects for each of the challenges. Each challenge goes for 1-month, so there is plenty of time to join in the FUN! All that being said, it's the 1st of the Month and time for a NEW Challenge!

For January, we want you use Glitter
 or be inspired by the Inspirational Photo!

I combined the colors with a couple extra added in the mix, and added some glitter for my card this month!

I used the lovely Little Miss Mouse from Elizabeth Bell for my card! I recently purchased this beauty and truly had an awesome time coloring with my Copic Markers. Yellow Stickles was applied to the center of each flower, and a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen was used on her wings and outfit. The background was created with distress inks and a dauber.

Copic Markers used for coloring the image.
Make sure you hop on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog for all of the details for entering our Monthly Challenges! I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!
