Lollipop cards and HOC

Hi friends.

Time for another challenge at the House of Cards
And the newest trend here i Norway are "Lollipop-cards". 
So I wanted to try that and I also wanted to color again, have been a while since the last one. 


Been a while since I had colored so that was a challenge to. I have som favorte artist and this time i choose some from Aurora Wings, take a peek at all her lovely digis. I colored these with my Prismacolor pencils, and I have not forgotten how to.. :)

All the lollipop-cards I have seen have all been round, and you know me... I had to do it my own way, ... so you see mine ended up oval and I got to use my new Spellbinder die. And my paper straws have dissapeared, so I just used normal plastic straws. Not as pretty but they work. 


Flowers are from Wild Orchid,
On the back side I stampt some friend text from Storyteller also the blings are from them.


These are so easy and fun to make and you can use flower sticks instead of straws and stick it in a flower pot as a little extra decoration or with clearbag of a treat for any occacsions. 

I challenged my self by using yellow and orage colors, but I had to make one useing one of my faveorite color combos, blue colors.
Here is the inspiration photo we had to work with.
