T3 anything but a card queen kat style

Here's how it goes:

- Each week 3 Royal Court Members host a challenge on their blog. (the same challenge)

- You start at the QKD blog and visit the 3 challenge hosts on their personal blogs. (Leave us some love and a link to your project so we can return the favor. *wink*)

- QKD will offer up a $25 stamp gift certificate for you to compete for each month. So if you enter each week, you have 4 chances to win the monthly prize of $25.

I choose to make a coaster box showcasing one of  Myka Jelina images.  This one is called sunny and i colored her with copic markers.  I followed this tutorial over at splitcoast stampers coaster gift box.

Your three hosts this week are Jules, Chris, Jan (me)

Wishing you happiness

First off i have to say design of this card is not all me i was totally inspired by one of the talented design team members from there she goes clear stamps.  Knightrone is a very talented card maker and i love her cards and i tend to stalk her gallery on splitcoast and then i take something away and make it my own.  This time i think i totally cased her except for three things.  I changed out the pattern paper, i used a smaller border die behind the image and i left my sentiment in a plain rectangle.  Here the original card from knightrone gallery http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1964803.
Okay that being said i am entering my card into two challenges this week 

A spoon full of sugar - anything goes

Ribbon carousel- clean and simple design with ribbon.

life is what happens

This week over at sparkle creations challenge blog there a great sketch to follow and another chance at free sparkle rubber.  I used cruisin choloe this week and i used chalks to create a nice kind of background behind her as she cruisin down the road.  My sentiment says life is what to you when your busy making other plans.  I thought it went nicely with my image since she definitely looks she is moving on down the road enjoying life.
