A Springtime creation for the All Dressed Up CHALLENGE--ATG

Hi there!  It's Carolyn bringing you a Springtime card from the great All Dressed Up Shop!  This card is for the ADU CHALLENGE where you could win some free images from this great company--But you can't WIN unless you enter.  It runs for a month-from the 15th of the month to the 14th of the next month.  Plenty of Time!!
I'm using a recent image called Piggy Back--the image comes with the the featured young lady and the 2 mushrooms at her feet.  I think I went crazy adding in the flowers, grass, and pebbles at her feet, as well as the sky using copic markers.
I double matted her picture, added a pink and white heavy daisy ribbon along the side and softened it with a sheer pink bow.  For a little bling,
I added 3 pink epoxy dots at the top.
I always finish off the insides of my cards so here is a look at that:
There's lots of room to write a personal message.

Thanks for looking-I'd love for you to start following me on my Blog.  I'm on several DTs and hope to inspire you with my creations!

Spring at Polkadoodles using "Just a Note"

 Hi Everyone, Carolyn here--Spring is coming!!!  I think this card for Polkadoodles just oozes fresh air, sweet smell of flowers, and the pitter patter of raindrops!  I used the image called "Just a Note" and it just makes me smile!
Using my favorite medium Copics:
Purples: BV13, BV02, FV2
Pinks: R0000,RV000,RV10,RV02,RV21, R81,R83,R85
Greens: YG11, YG17,23,06
Yellows: YR12,21,YR04,14,15
Browns: E43,41,44
Grays: C0,1,2,3
Prismacolor pencils
White Posca Pen
Glossy Accents on raindrops

One other great die that Polkadoodles carries is the Flower Flourish set-now I only used the filigree small unit but there are 6 pieces! I cut mine from PD design paper and added buttons in the centers.  The papers used are from the Scrumptious Sugar pack and Winnie's Mermazing Ocean paper pack  So many great goodies they have on their site and even a new Spring collection debuting soon!

I always finish the insides of my cards shown here using dies and stamps from my stash!
Thanks for looking-see you soon!
