There is a great challenge waiting for you at Glitterbabe´s challenge this week, you don´t want to miss it! and here is my inspirational creation for you. The sketch I chose is one from Inkspiration Challenge blog (a past one, but I like it very much!), I embellished the front of my card with a leather flower that I tied with raffia, two brads and glitter glue. The papers are from Summer Driggs.
The image is Tweet Street from Nana Vic (please, do stop by her place, you´ll love everything she has!), I colored it with colored pencils, this image has a lot of beautiful details and I was a bit scared of not being able to show all its beauty, but I´m very pleased with the result!
On the inside is the sentiment that I computer generated with PS, I found it on a very (very) old craft book I bought years ago and I think it fits very well with the image. I matted it with patterned paper and a scrap of the same red cardstock and placed it with foam tape for dimension. The additional image is from Karen Kindrich that I colored with colored pencils too, glittered its border and glued it to the card. I added as embellishments a couple of resin pumpkins to be used as bulge for the open card and a string of raffia .
Here is a picture of the card in its easel form, it looks very pretty! hope you like it too!!

You did a beautiful job here, Ileanna! Very pretty card and wonderful coloring. Looks like you've got the blue outlining figured out now as it looks great!

I'ts been forever since I stopped by to see all of your gorgeous creations! You've really been busy! This card is gorgeous! Your coloring is awesome (you know how much I love colored pencils!)! I love the bit of bling on the borders...perfect addition! I've finally started using just a touch of color around the image like you do, and I love it!

Your Christmas cards are as gorgeous as ever! Those Glitterbabe ornaments turned out so beautiful, and I really love how you laid it out!

Great work on your scrapbooking pages! Also, congrats on making top 3 at Lasting Memories! Woo Hoo! Pat yourself on the back for me!

The magnets and paperclips are adorable! I may have to CASE this to use for Chelsey's baby shower this weekend. I wanted something a bit different for favors, and I think this will be great! She only has a couple weeks to go before they take the stitches out of her cervix, so Caleb will be here soon! We had so many worries for so long with her carrying, so now it's strange that he won't be a preemie.

I hope your holiday season is great! You still have time to finish those cards, so don't worry too much about it. I'll try to stop by more often!
Hugs! Lee
