Flowers and shapes for DigiStamps4Joy

We're in the middle of the shaped card challenge on the DigiStamps4Joy blog, so it's time for a little mid-challenge inspiration.  I love coloring flowers, so that's what I did:


I used the DigiStamps4Joy digi, Cosmos Corsage

I colored the image with Copic markers, blending blues and yellows together. The bracket shaped card cutting file is from the Silhouette Online Store.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is a Close To My Heart stamp. The beautiful tie dye ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM's new Tie Dye 2 Bundle.  The beautiful stick pin was made for me by my online crafty friend, Randi.
I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post last week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already.
