Karen's Doodles Challenge 29 - Lace and a Blog Hop

Karen's Doodles is hosting a blog hop today along with our weekly challenge. Visit each team member's blog and leave a comment. We will be awarding random prizes of digi images chosen from the people who comment. If you arrived here from Tracy Jackson you are on the right track. If not, start at the Challenge blog for a list of the DT members in hop order. In addition to our normal 3 winners, the Design Team will also pick a favorite entry who will be invited to join us as a Guest Designer for the month of October.

Lori, this month's hostess has set a challenge for us to use.....

 Lace

For my card, I chose Karen's Doodles My Little Angel,


I printed the image onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Angel - E000, E00, R01
Eyes - B14
Hair - E21, E33
Gown - BG11, BG13
Wings - BG11 and clear Spica pen
Clouds - B000, blender pen and clear Gelly Roll

The DP is from my stash, I got the lace at JoAnn's.  I cut and embossed the circle using my Joy Crafts Circle Frames.  Then I cut out the image and raised it up with Pop Dots.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I am the last stop on the blog hop but before you go, there is one more twist, if your name is chosen as a random winner and you have entered into this week's Lace challenge, your prize will double! And don't forget, if you get lost along the way, you can always return to the Challenge blog for a complete list of blogs to visit.  Winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 28th.

Sandy, old buddy, old pal - cute card but wanted to tell you I could never figure out how to overlay a png file over a png file in Elements without the bottom one showing through. Your second tutorial showed me how to take the jpg file of the 2nd png, remove just the background and combine them. Easy peasy. Thanks, I was pulling my hair out....C2
