Here is a sample card to get you started:

I'm sure we all can recognize this darlin' image.  It's another beauty created by Krista of "Saturated Canary."

She was colored using Copics:
Reds: R30
Greys: C3, C1
Blues:  B93, B91, BG70
Browns: E25, E23, E50, E11, E13, E00, E000, E43, E42, E41, E40

I used Kraft Cardstock and Authentique Designer Paper.  The flowers are 25mm Wild Curly Roses from Wild Orchid and I used a Spellbinders die to cut the corners.

I haven't finished the inside because I ran out of scraps so trying to get a flow is a bit harder than usual.  My next card I really like because I am a lover of hats. 



I saw a technique on Youtube on using a standard border punch and making it work as a punch around the page.  It was pretty cool and easy to follow. I have forgotten where I got the image but I ended up with four of them. 

The flowers are once again from Wild Orchid and the pearls are Recollection. My designer paper is Websters and the cardstock is Bazzill.  I used Spellbinders to cut the Lacy Circle and the Teardrop circle.

For the inside I tried the technique again using white cardstock to create a space for a personal messge, and then on the right I printed the verse directly onto the DP.
 
 

As always thanks for stopping by and remember "find beauty in all things and then go create your own."  Then go ahead and enter your creation in this challenge using Mr. Linky shown below (smiles).  Can't wait to see what you guys create:
