This is her first sponsorship with PIP Challenges and I am super happy to have her! Be sure to check out all her great products! You will certainly find some awesome images, stamps, and more to choose from!  Check them out now!
Here's my card!
I've entered it in the Gerda Steiner monthly challenge.
I just adore the stamps and images from Gerda Steiner and this one is a fave! I used a wave stencil to create my ocean and added some torn kraft cardstock, edged with brown ink, for my sand. I inked a sun and sponged a bit of yellow ink for the sky as well. I stamped a great sentiment for this little scene and added a couple of shell charms. My fun little surfer duck was colored with Copic markers.
I added some glaze for the sunglasses and put together my layers to complete my card. I think it's just too cute! That duckie makes it that way!!

Here's my card!
I had an issue with the printer I'm using here in Florida and found that the ink would run when using my Copic markers, but still, most of this was colored with Copic then I switched to Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils to complete it. Since my friend, Gerri, and I are in Florida, basking in the sun, this was like a selfie! LOL!! I will be sending this card to Birdie because I know she will get a kick out of it! hehe. I added some glaze to the cuties sunglasses  

and the sentiment to complete my card.

Here's my card!
Ching-Chou Kuik has such gorgeous designs I didn't feel my coloring does them justice but I gave it a shot with my Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils. I spent a lot of time coloring this and I after I raised up the butterfly and put my card together, I decided to add some sparkle pen to the butterfly...when...
the pen LEAKED all over my completed card. It was completely ruined. UGGGH! The photo posted here has been edited so I didn't have to color another image.

Here's my card!
Be sure to check out our sponsor's digis and I am sure you will love them as much as I do! This little gal just makes me think about "singing in the rain." I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers. I printed two of the images so I could cut out an extra umbrella to raise up, with pop dots, for dimension. 
I added glaze and SN Sparkle pen to the umbrella and light. My umbrella needed a top so I added a button brad.
I made a "frame" for the image and embossed it. 
I created my layers and raised up the frame.

Here's my card!
Can we say ADORABLE IMAGE??? 
It was so much fun to color with my Copic Markers. I'm not great on dress ruffles but it's ok. I didn't want to add too much to the card to take away from the darling image. I added a colorful background to make it "pop". White pearls are the perfect accent when you can color them to just right shades with Copics. Just the finishing touch!
