I'm part of the team! - TMITA - Painted Pony

Hello Blogger's,

I have some news for you........ late last year Nina from TMITA and Paper Cupcakes Digital Stamps asked me if I would like to join her design team!!!! I was so pleased as I've enjoyed playing with the digital images she so generously gives away every week on TMITA. I've some good friends who also design for Nina so it's going to be fun working with them all.

So here we are week one.......

The image today is Nina's 'Painted Pony' and it reminded me so much of the party favours, Pinatas, they sell in our Spotlight Stores so this was the inspiration for my card.
Patti got to set the additional challenge today which was a colour challenge.


My little card would measure just four inches and I've got as close as I can to the colours suggested.
I used the largest of the Spellbinder scalloped circles to cut the green card, making sure the top was just outside so it flips open. I pierced all the front scallops.
I flipped my pony image on the computer, then sized and printed it onto white card. I've coloured with Copic's and following the heart theme, you'll notice Nina has added hearts to her drawing, I added three yellow heart brads.
Using two Spellbinder circles dies I've cut first the image then a larger circle out of my take on 'Dusty Durango'! These were then layered to the green scalloped circle. To complete the front of the card I added three gems and the satin bow.

On the inside of this card I added a circle cut from SU Sahara Sand and framed it with a gold circle frame ready for a sentiment.

I hope you'll go visit TMITA for your free image and join the challenge. While you're there check out the designing diva's cards too, it's fun to see what everyone made with this image.
If you enjoy Nina's images go check out her Paper Cupcakes on-line store.

Thanks for taking the time today, I'll be back on Wednesday with the January page of my simple Calender I'll be making during the year and a new card. Hope you'll be able to pop back.

Till next time.............
