Sweet Milton ~

Hello friends!  This is my iCopic Lover post from yesterday. I've added a few little things here and there to tell you about the challenges that helped me along with this card.

Hiya there, iCopic friends!  Alyssa here with another little sweetie from the Wild Rose Studio line of stamps.  I seriously think that these little guys are my new favorites!  Each little character is so darling!  Just wait till you get to meet Pickle!
Since the iCopic Weekly Challenge #42 is coloring fur, I have a little Milton with Sunflower ditty for you.  When I saw that little sunflower, I just knew I had to pop it up on some dimensionals.  Milton is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with {a lot} of Copics!  Seriously, I have a bloggy friend {you know who you are, Chris!!} that always teases me about the copious amounts of markers I use for one image! lol  He looked a little plain all colored up, so I doodled in some grassy ground, flowers and little butterflies to go along with the Copic Creations challenge: Landscape Design.
Again, blogger doesn't like my photos and makes them appear blurry...if you click on the photo, it will open in another window and will not be blurry.  Argh...
iCopic is now carrying some fabulous new 6x6 paper pads!  You can go here to view the entire selection.  The polka dot paper on the large panel is from the new Authentique Blissful collection.  I just got it in the mail yesterday!  It worked perfectly with my image...if you look really closely, the melon-y color is actually surrounding a few of the dots!  How serendipitous!  
Lastly, I stamped a banner from Lawn Fawn's Bannerific clear set in Versafine Onyx Black on vellum along with the sentiment (from my stash) and embossed it with clear detail embossing powder.  I then fussy cut it out and mounted it on dimensional foam tape over the base of the image.  The butterflies in the card tie in with the Pink Elephant challenge #111.  Since I doodled some flowers, I'm also entering this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge: Grow Your Own.  The sketch is from i{heart}2stamp - August SFYTT.  Lastly, this is a sweet little birthday wish card so I'm entering it in Craft Your Days Away #26 and Tuesday Throwdown #61.
You have until Sunday, August 14th, at noon PST to link up your furry creation to the iCopic challenge.  Not only do you have a chance at some goodies, but you may also be featured on the blog!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!  :o) lyss

I am kicking myself for not buying that Authentique paper pack at Archiver's. Gorgeous card! The sunflower is perfect and it all looks like it could just pop off the screen.

I just love these images, and this one is soooo CUTE!!! Awesome coloring and the dimension of the sunflower looks terrific! Once again your doodling looks amazing!

Awww, such a cutie! Love that flower and that background...wow!!!
BTW, did Leigh Ann mention trying to resize your photos to 500x whatever so that in blogger you can choose "original size" after you upload it? We both have the same blurry photo problem in blogger. Granted all my photos this week are yucky since there was no natural light to be found for days while the rain was coming down!!!
