Some MFT and Paper Pretties

Happy Thursday!
I'm so happy it's the long weekend!
I had a chance this morning to work on a card for todays Ways to Use it Challenge. It was all about tags. Make a tag, make a card with a tag on get the
These metal tags are some that we picked up in Florida in 2007. I'd forgotten all about them until this morning! Don't you love when you find something new or almost new?!
Last night while watching Survivor, I actually coloured in a bunch of images with my copic markers. I had a different DP in mind when colouring this image but I think the For Peep's Sake DP works fine with it. The umbrella is stamped in Summer Sun and then Versamark. I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.

Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Barely Banana, WW and For Peep's Sake DP

This was another image I coloured last night. I still need to practice a bit with my Copic markers and don't look too closely ;)
The paper is from Occasions Mini and it's called Afternoon Tea.

Here is another Paper Pretties Card using the Sealed With A Kiss. I think this is the one I'll give to my parents. I can't decide which one so maybe I'll send them TWO ;)
Paper Pretties has released a couple more stamps but unfortunately I don't have them. You can see them HERE. They are called Sassy Circles and Flutter By.
I'm addicted to the Liquid Pearls! Hope I didn't overdue it on this card!
