Duckie In Egg

Pattie's Creations Design Challenge is starting a new challenge this week and with Easter being this weekend - what else could the theme be?  Did you know that Pattie's Creations offers a freebie every month?  For my card I used the freebie that was offered the first Friday of this month - Duckie In Egg.  I decided that I wanted to make a statement with this card:  that you don't have to spend a lot of money to make cards.  The image is a freebie.  The papers were scraps from other projects as is the ribbon.  And I colored the image with Bic Sharpies.  So many people use Copics and get wonderful results.  But some people just can't afford the investment of those markers.  I once bought a set of Sharpies at Staples with a coupon - I think I got a set of 40 markers for around $12.  Certainly you cannot get the same results as you can with Copics or Spectrum Noir markers....but you can still create a nicely colored image.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today.  God bless you!!!

He is adorable! Love the image and the fun papers you used for the background. Very spring and happy. I need to pick up some sharpies, they worked great. I have some copics but they are pricey. I do use my distress markers more lately as I have more of those. Have a Happy Easter!

Zella - I used the same freebie image for my creation too! He was just too cute that I had to go with that one. I have so many scraps from other cards, and I never think of using them. Now you have me thinking a little harder that I could really save some money in the process!
