Carolina! Carolina! She's our Gal!

(This is my second post today, please go here for my Twisted Tuesday creation)

Today is not only Twisted Tuesday, it is the 5th and that means the Crafty Gals Blog Group have a challenge. We are honoring Carolina this month. She is a wonderful crafter. She colors images like you would not believe! She loves mixing patterns and using bright colors. She makes very, very cute creations.

Well, we were to CASE her.
I can't even come close to coloring as well as she does. But, I did try to mix up my patterns, use bright colors and make a cute card. :)

 Carolina also loves MFT (My Favorite Things company), so I added a cut from their ticket die to the corner of my card. I received this image and the cute polka dot card stock from my sweet friend Tami! (blueinks). I love this little Hedgehog image!

Carolina! I hope you like this girl! You are such an inspiration to me :)
Please go and see what the other Crafty Gals have made in honor of Carolina. Their blogs are listed in my right sidebar.

 
Supplies:
Image: SU Hedgehog Happiness
 American Crafts card stock, DCWV striped card stock, SU pumpkin pie and early espresso card stock
Spectrum/Noir markers and watercolor pencils
SU curly label punch (to make the hole for the twine)
MFT ticket die
SU old olive button
The Twinery baker's twine (light brown, can't call the name right now)
misc sticky pearls

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time...
Blessings...

You did a wonderful job coloring. I really like the paper you chose, mixing patterns is so hard. Lovely job.

Oh so sweet! Love the cut out of the side - very creative touch! Would you believe I just inked this set up for Barb's THank you swap, then decided I didn't like it and went with something else, hee hee! Great case of Carolina!

Melina, your card is ADORABLE! I love the notch for the baker's twine (I've actually thought about trying a similar thing myself, but always changed my mind at the last minute. Now I need to try it!) And your paper choices are perfect! Love the image, too!

Your CASE of Carolina is so cute!!!
