Bacon & Eggs: PPPR DT Day

Hello Everyone, Happy Sunday! It's design team day for me over at The Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Blog :D
I used many different files today on my print and cut card. I went with print and cut because I wanted to be able to make quick duplicates of this card.

Files Used:
Bacon & Egg Cutting FilesCupid Cutting FilesMan, Oh Man Pattern Pack 1
Summer Brights Chevron & Stripes

I typed up the sentiment in my silhouette and since this was a print and cut I just typed it right on top of the card. I did decide to add a button and some jute but when I reproduce these, they will just be plain. I added some highlights to my bacon, egg and hearts using a white gel pen. The black stitching was created using my black gel pen. I wasn't sure if I wanted faces on my fun food but in the end decided to go with some Peachy Keen Stamps.
I hope you all enjoy my fun whimsical card?
 thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

YNS Fun Friday: You make my heart sing!

TGIF everyone! I am here to share my Fun Friday creation with you all. August will be wrapping up before we know it, so be sure to play along with us over at the YNS Blog. I used the super pretty digital stamp called "Blossom Birds" for todays card.
I used both this months Inspirational photo and Sketch for my cards layout.

I choose my colors based on the Inspirational photo, I thought that purple flowers would be a perfect match. I wanted to make the flowers look like pansies, my grandmas favorite <3 I colored everything using my Spectrum Noirs markers. I am hoping my first order of Copics will be here tomorrow, so I can start mixing and matching markers.
Be sure to go see what the other YNS design team members created for their projects!
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day/weekend!
