March's Card Challenge and a Banana Split

 I can finally share my card for Phillane's and my Monthly card challenge we have going on for each other.

The Challenges for this month is.
1.Spring Theme
2. Envelope Pocket Card
3. Image of Choice
4. at least 4 Layers
5. Washi tape.

1.For the Spring theme I used one of my favourite paper packs from Graphic 45, the Once Upon a Springtime collection.
At one time I had 2, 12x12 packs and 2, 8x8 packs. I am down to one of each now…time to hoard, lol
2. I made my envelope pocket card that I had designed for the class I taught back in February.
To see the tutorial on this type of card Check out my Video.
3. Coloured this cute image from "Great Impressions" with my Copic markers.
4. I have many layers to this card. The flower itself has 4 layers with the butterflies on it
5. Washi Tape, I kind or forgot about that element so added it to the inside of the card and to the back.

I cut the paper title from the paper…if you didn't know it was a Spring themed card, I spelt it out for you ;)

Here is my layered flower.
The nylon butterfly is from the dollar store. I changed the colour of it with some coloured spray.
I even used some rose trim.

I actually matched my Copic colours to this paper. Usually I just colour my image and match up the papers later…as I have so much paper it is never a problem, teehee.
But I wanted to match her dress up perfectly with these papers.

Here is the video I did of my card :)

Here is the Phillane's card she made for me for March :)
Isn't this so cute. I love the palm tree, it has so much texture to it :)
Of course this little Pure Innocence girl is adorable as well.

Tomorrow starts my Healthy eating.
I do have one lunch and one supper out this month that I know of, but besides that, I am going to eat healthy. I will have a can of Coke on the weekends, but will cut it out for the weekdays again. And I will drink more water.
So tonight we had Banana Splits for dessert ;)
Cute dishes eh?
I picked these up years ago when we had dessert every Sunday :)

I am sad that there is no Walking Dead on tonight, so we are watching 28 Days Later ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a creative Walking Deadless Sunday ;)
