Linking up and commenting is from August 2 to 9, with the winners announced on August 10.

I ended up making 4 cards, the best part about this book is having those card fronts all ready to cut and paste on card base :) I had so much fun making these... 
For my first card, I colored the panel in bold colors using my Sharpie markers and die cut three balloons. I layered these on another coloring panel with the same design. To finish I drew the strings and added the sentiment. I have also used Little Love Birthday Wishes (for sentiment) and Shaker Balloon #3 Oval
For this one I colored the panel in shades of purple and mint using Spectrum Noir Markers. To finish I added some white dots using the gel pen and added the die cut sentiment from an alcohol ink panel. I have also used Layered Watermelon (for sentiment) and Incredible Word Die
This one is bright with warm colors, I did all the coloring in Sharpie markers and then added some texturing by making dots with a very light shade of Spectrum Noir marker. I did a camouflage sentiment Aloha to finish the card. I have also used Aloha Word Die
For my final card, I partially colored a page and die cut the butterfly. Layered it with black paper and placed it on a stenciled flower panel. To finish I stamped the sentiment. I have also used Birthday Bash (for sentiment), Flutter Zen 2 Layering Dies and Peony Number Two Artplorations Stencil

I hope you enjoyed all my creations. Don't forget to leave comments to win. You can start hopping HERE. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
